About our Practice
Uniquely capable of identifying and treating disharmonies that cause disease, highly trained and nationally board certified acupuncturist, Lauren Daniels of TLC Acupuncture, helps patients reach their health and wellness goals with a caring and attentive approach.
Trusted and recommended by many in Scotch Plains, Fanwood, Westfield, and surrounding communities for a wide variety of health issues ranging from pain, psychological and emotional conditions, reproductive concerns, respiratory ailments, digestive disorders, and more, TLC's goal is to share the many benefits of acupuncture, cupping, eastern nutrition, gua sha, moxibustion, sotai, and tui na to accelerate the healing process allowing you to restore, heal, strengthen, relax, and thrive.
In 2012, TLC Acupuncture was founded upon the principles of health and longevity as well as a deep respect for nature and its cycles. TLC’s intention is to provide the tools needed for patients to restore and maintain systemic balance as well as guide them toward healthier living and inner peace. The patient’s role is to work harmoniously with the practitioner to achieve better living.
Lauren Daniels, founder of TLC, holds a Master’s level degree in Acupuncture from Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine where she graduated with honors. She is board certified by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) and holds a license to practice in the state of New Jersey. Lauren’s educational focus includes diverse protocols from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Five Element, and Japanese-style acupuncture. Drawing insight from each of these styles’ diagnostic and treatment methods allows Lauren to successfully identify and treat disharmonies at their root. Prior to pursuing education in Acupuncture, Lauren received her Bachelor's in Liberal Studies from Boston University where she graduated cum laude and was a member of Sigma Alpha Lambda's Honor Society.
Lauren’s passion for Chinese Medicine and Eastern philosophy blossomed from her own healing experience. She began her working career in business management and was later inspired to change that path by her own acupuncturist and mentor whose distinguished work is studied globally. Her remarkable healing experiences motivated her to give back to the medicine in appreciation for what she had received. Lauren has also taken vows of refuge in Tibetan Buddhism from a Tibetan lama doctor and when not studying Chinese Medicine, she continues to deepen her understanding of Eastern philosophy.
In Lauren's spare time, she loves traveling with her wife, spending time with their son and dogs, playing guitar, bike riding, playing squash, cooking, hiking, reading, photography, art, and is always looking for new adventures.
