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 14 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.

As the son of two cancer survivors, Kyle had full exposure to the outer limits of Western Medicine and was introduced to the integration of Eastern and Western healing very early in life. He believes strongly that they both have something valuable to contribute. His interests in Philosophy, Quantum Physics, Linguistics, and Meditation deeply inform his practice - reinforcing from many angles that our bodies and minds are systems which mirror and integrate into the larger systems of our communities and our planet, which in-turn reflects celestial systems larger still. He is fascinated by how deeply we are connected and engulfed in the moving - living cycles all around us.
His previous education in Photography and Critical Theory at Parsons School of Design predisposed Kyle to passionately engage in working with his hands and solidified his values of craftsmanship and skill. He has found through the practice of Acupuncture that he best uses his hands by using his heart.
