Jodie Cole is a New York licensed and board-certified acupuncturist. In 2009, Jodie founded Dix Hills Family Acupuncture and Acupuncture Associates of Long Island, both located on Long Island in Dix Hills and Hicksville, respectively. Both practices were developed with one goal in mind: to provide complementary therapies as an alternative to western medical care bringing better health, lifestyle choices, nutritional support, and preventive care to her patients. After fifteen years working in the public and private sector as a financial analyst and a Vice President on Wall Street responsible for budgets, financial reporting and system integration, Jodie Cole decided to redirect her energy from an integral role in determining business redundancy to a more positive influence on her patients’ health and wellness through acupuncture, multiple Asian medicine disciplines (traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Five
Element) and western nutritional support. Besides Jodie’s achievements in her finance career, she earned a Master level degree in Acupuncture with high honors, graduating in December 2008 from the New York College of Health Professions in Syosset, NY. She holds two Bachelor of Science degrees in Health and Professional Science and Finance. She is a Board-Certified Diplomat of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and is licensed by the New York State Education Department since 2009.
Jodie has further training with Dr. Martha Lucas, Ph.D., L.Ac. in Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture focusing on the face, neck, and abdomen, and is passionate about providing alternative solutions for looking and feeling younger for patients in the Long Island community. Jodie continuously enjoys her post-graduates studies, but her highlight has been additional training in Labor & Delivery with Claudia Citkovitz, L.Ac; Dr. Shi Xuemin’s XNKQ Stroke & Dementia Rehab Protocol (as seen in the documentary “9000 Needles” and Traditional Japanese Needling Techniques with Atsuki Maeda, L.Ac). She has trained with the National Acupuncture Detox Association at the Lincoln Recovery Center in the Bronx, NY, to bring healing to patients overcoming drug and alcohol abuse where she supervised acupuncture detox specialists at Nassau University Medical Center Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Program. She is employed by the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CCAOM) as a Clean Needle Technique (CNT) Examiner. Completed CNT training is required by the NCCAOM Board and the New York State Department of Education for all students entering into clinic rotations.
Her goal is to inspire patients to embark on a lifestyle change for them and their families, providing personalized education and emotional support with practical tools and strategies to heal their mind, body, and spirit. Jodie is experienced in the treatment of reproductive health for both men and women, pain management for musculoskeletal and neurological pain including fibromyalgia, chronic pelvic pain, migraine headaches, sciatica, joint pain and post-op surgical pain, disorders of digestion, respiratory and allergies, auto-immune, and psychological emotional disorders (e.g. anxiety, depression, etc.). She is enthusiastic about the pain-relieving benefits acupuncture provides to prevent and avoid the addictive use of narcotic prescription medicines. Jodie takes pride in providing safe and supportive space for her patients to heal and is deeply committed to helping the human process of health and healing with the use of these ancient, powerful methods.
When Jodie is not pinning her patients, she enjoys traveling with her husband, spending time with her family, friends, and animal companions. Jodie volunteers her services to non-profit organizations specializing in cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. She is especially proud of her time spent treating volunteers of KiDS NEED MoRE at their Camp Adventure program; a free sleep-away camp for children with cancer and their siblings.
