ABOUT SEVEN POINT WELLNESS

​Seven Point Wellness is the group practice of ​C​ristina R. de La Mar, M.S., L.Ac., Doula and ​​Phil Veneziano, M.S., L.Ac​.. We bring together our combined training and experience to provide expanded services and a broader range of expertise to all our patients.​ Our scope of practice includes Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Nutrition and various forms of hands-on Therapeutic Bodywork.

 

Our patients have access to either, or both Practitioners, depending on which area of expertise is most relevant to their condition over the course of treatment.  ​We find this an ideal way to meet the diverse needs of many, while still providing highly individualized care. 





TRAINING & LICENSING

We are Nationally Board Certified, New Jersey and New York State Licensed Acupuncturists and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners who utilize an integrative whole person approach.

 

Our academic and clinical training is grounded in the most current applicable research and best practices in our field. We continue to pursue ongoing learning opportunities both in the field, the classroom and our own everyday experiences in clinic.

 

Through our Fellowship at Mt. Sinai-Beth Israel Medical Center, we were credentialed acupuncturists, providing inpatient care throughout the hospital - working extensively in various departments: Orthopedic Surgery & Rehabilitation, Family Medicine, Oncology, General Surgery, Pain and Palliative Care, Neurology and Pediatrics among others.  

 

NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY COMMUNITY

Aside from private practice, we are deeply rooted in community - both locally and globally. We often sponsor or donate to local township events and fundraisers – and commit time and services to high need children and families in rural, urban and tribal communities, as well as in disaster areas. 

 

In support of the Performing Arts community, we offer treatment to singers, dancers, actors and musicians.
