To Contact/Book Supriya:
Supriya Desai Lay is a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist who obtained an M.S. in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College New York in 2013, graduating top of her class. She is certified by the NCCAOM as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine. She joined the field of Chinese Medicine after three years of consulting following the completion of her international economics degree from The George Washington University. After encouragement from her physician parents, Supriya embarked on the path to becoming an acupuncturist in order to make a substantial difference in people's lives each day, and she has never looked back since!
As a self-proclaimed people person, her compassionate treatment style emphasizes personal communication with patients coupled with successful clinical results. Supriya also stresses co-accountability and treatment plan or herbal compliance, as the path to healing is truly a partnership between practitioner and patient. Her personal motto is that one only has one life as this particular unique being, so it's important to make the most of each and every day, and she carries this energy and enthusiasm into her work… each and every day!
After graduating in 2013, Supriya moved halfway across the country to Kansas with her husband and started two thriving practices while also working with the state organization to successfully obtain Kansas acupuncture licensure. She and her husband have recently moved back to Brooklyn and are both enjoying being closer to family.
"Supriya is a consummate acupuncturist and well knows the work. She was able to feel the energies in my body and uses such a deft hand. I have experienced over a dozen different acupuncturists over the years, and Supriya ranks on my list as my all-time favorite and most accomplished.” – L.K.
“I was at a point in my life where my bulging discs in my neck were causing so much pain that the only option was surgery... though I was a skeptic, I thought I would try acupuncture. Wow, did it change my outlook on life!...Supriya took time to listen to my issues and always gave me the best treatment to make me feel like a new person, whether it was cupping, gua sha or needles. She is a very empathetic and compassionate person.” – D.P.
"Supriya and I worked specifically on migraine headache management and prevention, stress management, and living free of medication. It’s totally appropriate to say that Supriya changed my life. I didn’t know what “normal” or “healthy” felt like before I met her. Supriya’s healing spirit touched me; mind, body, and soul.” – J. H.
