We are all New York State licensed acupuncturists. You can see the same acupuncturist or book with a different practitioner each time. We will not be offended, and we all access the same charts and will be able to treat you. No two acupuncturists are alike and you may resonate with one practitioner more than another. What is important is that we all are in love with the practice of acupuncture and will do our best to help you regain and retain optimal health.
Our goal is to provide quality, safe and non-judgmental care for our patients.
Ariel Deva de León licensed acupuncturist, clinic owner/director
Hailing from sunny San Diego, Ariel Deva de León received her BA from University of California, Santa Cruz in Community Studies with a focus on Resistance and Social Movements, and a Master of Science in Acupuncture from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in Manhattan.
After graduation, Ariel worked at WorkSong Chinese Medicine in Greenpoint, where a high patient volume gave her her sea legs before opening Tigerlily in 2015. Finding and working in the community model brought Ariel full circle in terms of incorporating the theories of social movement and social justice into her own practice. Ariel is so pleased to be working with her own community of Bushwick, where she has been living for the past 13 years.
Ariel's own practice is very active; incorporating a mix of Japanese hara (abdominal) palpation, "deep qi" and trigger point needling, KyoJung (a Korean physical manipulation therapy), and Zero Balancing bodywork. This style encourages patients to engage with their own healing processes, and bear witness to their own transformative capability. Ariel habla español.
