Carleen Implicito ATC, LAc, Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM)

Carleen Implicito is a licensed acupuncturist in New Jersey and New York, board certified nationally by the NCCAOM. She completed a graduate degree in acupuncture at the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine in Montclair, New Jersey.  Her education at the Eastern School has made her understand that not only does acupuncture treat modern day ailments or injuries, it also enhances recuperative power, immunity, mental and emotional balance. Acupuncture addresses the root of the disease as well as the symptoms. Health is achieved, and disease prevented, by maintaining the body in a balanced state. The mind and body are not viewed separately, but as part of an energetic system.

Carleen’s passion lies in educating and empowering patients about their health.  She believes that providing patients with knowledge about their health issues and lifestyle choices aids in achieving better health and overall well-being. With an undergraduate degree in Athletic Training, from Purdue University, Carleen has worked with athletic injuries in various sports. She specialized in orthopedics, sports medicine and musculoskeletal injuries. Her background in Athletic Training has given her an extensive understanding of anatomy and physiology. Carleen’s goal is to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western medical treatments. She has been an acupuncturist for the past eight years and has been successful with helping patients by addressing many challenges that have an impact on the energy in the their body.

Carleen opened Elite Acupuncture in 2016 and has worked at The Graf Center for Integrative Medicine in Englewood Hospital since 2017. She grew up in NJ and lives with her husband, Mike and dog, Milo. She enjoys skiing, rock climbing, yoga, hiking, running and loves to read.
