As a New York State licensed Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist, Dimitri takes a holistic approach with his patients—tailoring treatments to individual conditions and needs. He began working in the health field as an Astoria-based personal trainer in 2006. While he very much enjoyed helping people who wanted to improve their health and fitness levels, he quickly recognized that the majority of his clients suffered from chronic pain or medical conditions. They viewed pharmaceutical drugs and/or surgery as the only treatment options but Dimitri knew there were better alternatives and decided to continue his education. After obtaining his personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, he continued his education at New York College of Health Professions where he completed his associate degree of occupational studies in Massage Therapy and his bachelors and masters degrees in Acupuncture. He also completed a holistic health counseling program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Dimitri continues his education by attending seminars and reading the latest research in massage therapy, acupuncture and holistic health.
Today, his blend of traditional and sports acupuncture, massage therapy, corrective exercises, and posture rehabilitation truly addresses the root cause of dysfunction and not just the symptoms. Dimitri is experienced dealing with a wide range of conditions and concerns but specializes in Sports Medicine and Orthopedics.

In 2006, when Anna Louca began working with clients to improve their long term skin health, she quickly recognized that such treatment required far more than just the external application of products.
To stay true to this perspective, Anna continued her education in nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Traditional Chinese Medicine at New York College of Health Professions where she obtained degrees in massage therapy and acupuncture. She now combines this ancient form of healing with esthetics and nutritional recommendations to give her patients long lasting results and a better understanding of how internal medical conditions or energetic imbalances initially present on the skin–our body's largest organ. By treating both external (skin) and internal (organ) imbalances, Anna offers her patients much more than a "temporary fix."
Consistent with her holistic outlook, Anna specializes in women's health, cosmetic acupuncture and holistic skin care.
