Deb Ross


A licensed acupuncturist and board certified herbalist in NYC and Westchester, Deb has been involved with, studying and practicing Chinese Medicine for fifteen years. During her master's program at Touro College, she participated in a year long internship at Lutheran Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. Upon graduation, she was presented with the Touro College Maimonides Award for exemplifying high ideals in the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Deb apprenticed alongside Thomas Droge – while in school and even after – for five years and garnered extensive experience in treating orthopedic and sports injuries, psychiatric conditions, fertility, and autoimmune diseases using Chinese Medicine. She has been in private practice for over twelve years.

What inspires Deb most about Chinese Medicine is its ability to see each person as a unique individual. It acknowledges all experiences such as past and/or chronic health issues, childhood illnesses, stress, eating habits, physical injuries and other lifestyle choices as major influencers in our current state of health, allowing us to create a targeted treatment plan that works specifically for each person.

“Deb Ross is a beam of love and light. I had never tried acupuncture before but I was willing to try anything to get my ankle pain to go away…

Since working with Deb a lot of my injuries/pains have completely subsided, or if anything starts to hurt I’ve learned how to stop everything before it begins to worsen. Deb is a listener, a cheerleader, a teacher, a giver, and truly is just a breath of fresh air every time I get to see her…”

“…Before even receiving treatment I felt understood and that Deb was taking it all in trying to asses the best protocol to help me feel better. There is attention, care, knowledge, and energetic healing in each visit, it's a genuine pleasure.”



“Michele’s honest authentic approach made it pleasurable to follow.

My waistline is a little smaller I’ve lost 6 inches I am staying focus. The most significant change I have noticed is I have so much energy to go about my daily tasks. I would describe Michele as encouraging, dedicated, committed, organized, and fun. I’d recommend her to anyone who is serious about their health and ready to make some lifetime changes. She had made this change fun, interesting, easily understood and simple.”


“…Deb has been so integral to my health; to the healing of some significant injuries and to the healing of my heart through some major life moments. She deeply cares about the well-being of those who come to her which is felt in every session. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking an expert practitioner who will tend to their mind, body, and heart. ”
