|"My experience at ESATM has led me to become an amazing Acupuncturist with a thriving practice in Park Ridge, NJ. The knowledge that I obtained was invaluable. Not only did I learn about Traditional Chinese Medicine and Kiiko Matsumoto Japanese style Acupuncture, I also learned about nutrition, tuina/massage, and other healing modalities that I use in my day to day practice. Acupuncture school was a true spiritual journey for me. It not only shaped me into a practitioner but it helped me to change my own life to become a healthier stronger individual. I am forever grateful to my teachers who gave me what I needed to succeed. I am in love with what I do, and I would not be where I am today without the ESATM."|

|"I am confident that The Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine will prepare me to become an outstanding acupuncturist and will also properly prepare me for a successful acupuncture career. I choose to study at the Eastern School not only because of its close proximity to my residence and the small classroom experience, but because of the strength and rigor of its curriculum. I am very grateful to be able to obtain a master level training in acupuncture, from an institution that upholds such high standards of excellence in Eastern medicine. In addition, I also feel a sense of community with everyone, including my classmates, the instructors, and the Administration as well."|
|"I have had a longtime passion for holistic approaches from an early age. The Eastern School was wonderful; very complete and its New Jersey location was very convenient. With my practices in both New York and New Jersey, I can now offer my patients more."|

|"My patients think about me first when they are sick or in pain. They call me before they call anyone else. Acupuncture lets me use my heart to treat them. It was my fate to study acupuncture. I love the school so much that I wanted to stay in close contact, so I returned to teach. When you teach you learn more."|
