About Alida van Heerden




Alida van Heerden, L.Ac., is a New York State licensed and Nationally Board Certified NYC Acupuncturist.

She holds a Master Science in Acupuncture (MSAC) and a Bachelor’s in Professional Studies from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City and is an active member of the NYC Acupuncture Society of New York. Alida also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

With a background in psychology, science, music, and art, Alida brings to her practice a love of the workings of the human mind and body. Pain in the body affects the mind and the spirit. It impairs the flow of vital energy causing chronic exhaustion, depression, insomnia, anxiety, overeating, and takes away enjoyment from life…all of which enervate the immune system and can manifest as asthma, headaches, arthritis, allergies, sciatica, digestive disorders, etc…

Alida feels that recognizing individuality of each patient is the fundamental concern of a true healer. She blends Chinese and Japanese acupuncture needle technique to balance energy flow in the body and promote its innate ability to heal itself. Each treatment includes a unique combination of acupuncture NYC, Chinese bodywork and Japanese abdominal massage.

The treatment hour clears the past and the future and connects you to the present; to the place inside you where true transformational healing takes place in the body, the mind and the spirit…and with the healing, a renewed sense of well-being and vitality.

You can find detailed information at Alida's website on Acupuncture for Pain NYC, as well as acupuncture for depression NYC. Alida is also a NADA Certified Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist. For help with addictions please visit her addiction page at Acupuncture for Addictions NYC.
