Dr. Carnucci is the best. Highly recommend!*
Acupuncture in Westfield, NJ: Acupuncture can be effective in helping people with illnesses, injuries, chronic pain, addictions, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, menstrual cramps, weight control, infertility and much, much more.
We often use acupuncture as an adjunct therapy to the comprehensive list of services. Dr. Carnucci will work with you to develop a comprehensive approach to help alleviate your pain, and not just mask it with traditional Western medicine that involves medication or masking symptoms.
The benefits of acupuncture are numerous and address not only physical health but mental wellbeing. This makes it an excellent course of treatment whenever stress is the cause of bodily symptoms. Neuro-imaging studies show acupuncture to calm areas of the brain that register pain and eastern philosophy credit it with stimulating the bodies Qi or “life force” which lowers stress and promotes emotional wellness
Our acupuncturist, Shara Resende, L.Ac., is a graduate of Rutgers University with a Bachelor degree in Biology and of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (NY) with a Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine. She has a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine and is nationally certified by NCCAOM and is certified in clean needle technique with CCAOM.
Each acupuncture session is generally 30-40 minutes long depending on your individual needs. During the session, patients will lie down on a table in a private, comfortable and relaxed environment. Very thin, sterile needles (used 1 time per patient), are placed in specific points on the body. Most patients do not experience any pain or discomfort. Some of our patients even fall asleep during the session because they find treatment to be so relaxing!

Westfield Health & Rehabilitation is the best multifaceted center I have ever been to! The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. You definitely get the feeling that Dr. Carnucci and his staff personally care about your wellbeing. I highly recommend W H&R for anything from minor aches and pains to post-surgical rehab!*
You are the best Dr. Todd.*
Dr. Todd helped me get through my first and only marathon. Not being a runner, he helped me with all of the aches and pains associated with the pounding on the back and joints!*
I’ve been going to Dr. Carnucci for the last 10+ years and highly recommend him and his staff! He’s been a life saver!*
They have taken me in as a new patient and explained all the things going on with. New adjusting methods have given me relief I haven’t had in awhile.*
The healing that Dr. Todd and his staff have done not only for me but my family, my grandchildren ages 10, 9, 9 and 2, my daughters, my brother and mother of 82 is AMAZING.*
As a chiropractor myself I use dr Carnucci to care for my spine !! His staff is also wonderful and always provides a happy healthy experience. Westfield health is the best!!*
let me give a HUGE thankful wave of gratitude for Westfield Health and Rehabilitation!! Shana my acupuncturist , after 5 awful years of being in pain with injuries and crazy new symptoms , tons of nerve burns, minor surgeries, useless highly addictive pain meds with terrible side effects, painful PT and all things unsuccessful, acupuncture has improved my life dramatically!
Shana is highly knowledgeable , well trained , excellent at what she does. She also is stellar with her bedside manner, actually everyone there is! To find a health practitioner that actually listens and is genuinely concerned about your quality of life in itself is priceless and makes a HUGE difference. By recommending homeopathic treatments, giving me the information to also add amino acids and other vitamins to my daily regimen is so beneficial. I notice small improvements. While I still have bad days, they haven’t been as debilitating as I have had in the past! So a huge THANK you for changing and improving the quality of my life!*
Dr. Carnucci has a really great practice. His staff is extremely friendly and took the time to make me feel like they truly cared about me. I grew up in Cranford and whenever I travel back home I make sure to stop to see Dr. Carnucci’s for an adjustment. I highly recommend his practice to anyone who needs chiropractic care or physical therapy.*
