Anxiety & Depression

Often two sides of the same coin, anxiety and depression can have a profound impact on your happiness and health. Modern life, stress and poor habits can lead to hormonal and nervous system imbalances. Our proprietary protocols correct these imbalances and give our patients a chance to experience a healthy and fulfilling life.


Stress has real physical, behavioral and psychological effects. High blood pressure, cardiac disease, poor eating habits, anxiety and depression are some of these effect. Acupuncture has been clinically proven to reduce stress hormones and re-set the nervous system. This allows our patients to better deal with stress and reduce the effects that stress has on the body.


Insomnia results in irritability, lack of focus and poor performance. More serious effects include increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. Your body heals when you sleep, therefore, poor sleep is often the root of many problems. Acupuncture improves the duration and quality of your sleep so that you reduce the risk of serious effects and recover faster from other ailments.

About Your Practitioner

Meet Steven Hoffman, Licensed Acupuncturist and Diplomate in Oriental Medicine. Steven was originally exposed to the ancient healing art of acupuncture through his study of martial arts. Steven’s teacher, Grand Master Chong M. Lee, was traditionally trained in acupuncture and acupressure and Steven studied under Master Lee for thirteen years.

Pursuing a passion for helping others and an intense curiosity for the art of acupuncture, Steven enrolled in the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine where he graduated with honors. Steven was then certified by the NCCAOM and the State of New Jersey in acupuncture and opened his practice in Princeton. Steven went on to complete a two year course in Chinese Herbology becoming certified in Oriental Medicine.

Steven continues to study under world-renowned acupuncture masters and teaches a select group of acupuncturists in techniques that are groundbreaking in this field. Putting patients on a path to complete resolution of their health problems sets Steven Hoffman and Princeton Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine apart from any other acupuncture clinic you will find in the area.

Steven is a graduate of Montclair State University with a Bachelors degree in Business Management. After working in the field of environmental contracting Steven founded and operated a successful environmental contracting firm for over ten years before changing the course of his life and eventually helping thousands of others change theirs.

Princeton Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine:  Practitioner

How To Get Started


Call and schedule your consultation (609-924-9500): The consultation normally takes 20-30 minutes and we schedule enough time to allow you to get your first treatment if you choose to move forward.


Preparing for your appointment: You will receive a confirmation email for your appointment within 24 hours of booking with a link to complete online forms. If you are unable to fill out the forms online, don’t worry, arrive 15 minutes early to your appointment and you can fill them out at the office.


Your first appointment: We are conveniently located just up the street from McCaffrey’s supermarket. Located on the lower level, you can access our entrance from the lower parking lot. You will meet with Steven Hoffman, go over your health concerns and Steven will provide you with a treatment recommendation tailored to your specific needs. Treatment can begin that same day.


After your appointment: You should hydrate well after treatment. Try to avoid any stressful activities (hard work out etc.) to allow your body can acclimate to the treatment. We have had patients feel much better and overdo it afterwards with even regular activities, so rest and give your body some time to heal.

Power Of Services

Princeton Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine is different than any other acupuncture practice in the area. For years, Steven was able to achieve fantastic results in reducing and eliminating symptoms. However, he was frustrated that symptoms would sometimes return when patients discontinued treatment. Because of this, Steven pursued training that would change the course of his practice. Working with world-renowned acupuncturists, Steven learned how to use electro acupuncture in ways that not only achieve superior results but also puts patients on the path to complete resolution of their problems.

Electro Acupuncture

Electro Acupuncture utilizes electro stimulation devices that are connected to acupuncture needles. Traditional acupuncture points are used but the use of electro stimulation turbo charges the treatment.

How The Body Works And Heals:

Your body operates at a slight negative charge, around -25 millivolts and it heals at around -50 millivolts. So, a slight negative charge is necessary for the body to function properly and heal. If your body is under stress, damaged, or diseased, the body, or body part, becomes positively charged. Normally, your body would get a “re-charge” of this negative charge from the earth (this is what earthing or grounding is about). People used to sleep on the ground and walk in bare feet during most of our development but we have since separated ourselves from the ground and therefore moved away from that re-charge of vital energy.

How Electric Stimulation Works:

The e-stim devices used in Electro Acupuncture emit electrons, a subatomic particle with a negative charge. The electrons are not only important but necessary for your body to function and heal. We can target specific areas of your body (back, neck, knees, etc.), internal organs (through the nerves as they leave the spine), and even the brain. By doing this, we create the optimal environment for your body to function properly and heal itself.

The benefits of Electro Acupuncture do not end there. By using specific frequencies, we can induce your body to produce powerful pain reliving compounds, hormones, and neurotransmitters. This enables us to reduce and eliminate pain while regulating hormonal and nervous system imbalances.

How This Sets Princeton Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine Apart:

There are only a handful of practitioners who have studied this form of cutting-edge acupuncture in the country or in the world for that matter. Steven teaches these techniques to a small group of practitioners and continues to seek new and innovative methods to provide the very best treatments possible.

What this means for you is that you are receiving treatments that are incredibly effective and put you on a path to complete resolution of your problem instead of giving you temporary relief.

Look at our reviews, see what our patients are saying in their own words. Don’t wait a minute longer. Call today, set up your consultation and start on your path to thriving, not just surviving.

Real Success Stories

I had my first acupuncture wellness treatment about a month ago for the first time. When I arrived I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Steve asked the right questions and made me feel confident in his ability from the start.

R. Burke

I canceled my appointment because I wasn’t feeling well only to have Steve tell me, “Come in, I can help you with that.” And he did! I went there, head throbbing, throat sore, aches and chills, and not even the energy to stand up straight.

J. Mennella

I’ve been receiving treatment for chronic hip pain both before and after surgery, and my mobility, strength, and endurance are all improving. Treatment has almost completely eliminated the need for NSAIDs. It has been a fantastic addition to my recovery process!

    My cousin have been telling me about acupuncture for a long time. But i decided to check it out when my back been hurting me for months. I tried everything I found no relief. So I said to myself I had nothing to lose. I started feeling … More better after the first session and continue to feel better as I kept going. Everyone is so nice. I recommend Princeton acupuncture to anyone who is in pain. If I had money I would keep getting treatment for a very long time. It’s my happy place!

    Great experience with princeton Acupuncture & oriental medicine (Steven Hoffman) and Christine. I went in w accident related injuries (knee and elbows) and within 2 visits the swelling and pain had been reduced significantly/eliminated. … More I have subsequently asked them to focus on other lingering issues with lower back and feet and am seeing the same results- truly grateful for this great find and will be coming back regularly to help with injuries/strains etc. Thank you so much Steven and Christine

    I felt comfortable the entire time and he was very attentive and calming
  • Avatar Kimberly Midtlyng ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    Walking into Dr Steve’s office I immediately feel a peace. The ambiance and the smell is so inviting. Being greeted by Christine is such a lovely experience. She is so friendly and always asks how I am and she is such a nice person. She … More makes me feel comfortable and that I am a valued client. Then Dr Steve talks to me about treatment. He is a wealth of knowledge and he always has the time to explain things to me or engage in conversation. I always feel better after having an Accupuncture treatment but being there and knowing these two people truly want the best for my physical and mental health encourages me to continue to get care. I have been to other places for Accupuncture but I would recommend Dr Steve above any of the others. He is really good at diagnosing problems and helping to find ways to make you feel better.
