Ancient Medicine for Modern Life

Traditional Chinese Medicine seeks to restore balance within the body, mind and environment. Garden Acupuncture uses Whole-Systems Traditional Chinese Medicine (WS-TCM) to restore balance and health not only within individuals, but within our greater Brooklyn, New York community. Through acupuncture, herbs, nutrition and lifestyle support, we empower our clients to understand, improve and maintain holistic health.

We welcome all, and we’re open 7 days a week (Mon-Thurs, 11am-10pm and Fri-Sun 11am-6pm). To make an appointment, call us at 347.987.4399 or visit our booking page.


Our Practitioners

Partners in business and in life, co-founders Alex Goldberg & Lisa Metzger have been practicing WS-TCM in their Park Slope location on Union Street since 2009. Officially establishing Garden Acupuncture in 2010, they continue to have the shared vision of offering high quality, authentic Whole System-Traditional Chinese Medicine to their Brooklyn community. Our team has since expanded to include Dr. Jeffrey Winsauer (PhD, OMD, LAc) and Denise Bradbie (LAc), who bring combined expert level experience in genetics, infertility, women’s health and various approaches to integrative medicine. Each of our practitioners is devoted to treating people with empathy, care and a commitment to whole-systems healing.

Garden Acupuncture’s vision is a reality, offering accessible care and support to clients, local businesses and positive organizations. By making this ancient wisdom easily available through convenient hours and participation in insurance, you have direct access to their team with over 70 years of combined clinical experience. Shared in one-on-one, personalized visits, there are advantages to personal care in a private tranquil setting vs a big clinic. Having had the privilege of touching the lives of so many and being humbled by the success of their patients, the whole team at Garden Acupuncture is dedicated & excited to be of service to you.
