For the past 30 years Dorene have focused on acquiring knowledge and insight to encourage and enable health and wellness for the people who touch my life.

As a New York licensed acupuncturist and nationally certified herbalist Hyman’s private practice in Manhattan is strongly influenced by my diverse background. Hyman received her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine at the Pacific College of Health and Sciences (formerly PCOM). The age-old sagacity of Chinese medicine forms the basis of her perceptions, but the Sandlin technique, a Native American body practice, Polarity therapy, a blend of modern Western medicine and ancient Eastern traditions, and numerous years of martial arts study have a profound effect on her style of helping the body to rehabilitate. In addition, she is a certified personal trainer and instruct adults in physical fitness, including Tai Ji and Qi Gong. For 13 years Hyman has supervised student interns at the VA Harbor Healthcare Medical Center and at NYU Langone’s Initiative for Women with Disabilities. Hyman additional studies in Eastern and Western nutrition, acupuncture facial rejuvenation, essential oils, and morphology are merged into her treatment approaches. Hyman’s work is deeply affected by her role as a mother of two children and the personal mastery of stress in the corporate world from her eighteen years as a video editor for NBC.

No stranger to the challenges of balancing work and family responsibilities, she has a clear understanding of the ways in which stress expresses itself in our daily lives. Hyman has discovered simple principles that often get lost in the rush of modern living, and sees her role as a facilitator, a guide, through which ancient wisdom can creatively support the individual. Through physical treatment, careful listening, and a gentle-hearted focus, Hyman has witnessed individuals reclaim their health and become the generative source of balance in their own lives.
