Dr. Joyce Leung Lilly specializes in men and women’s health, mental health and addictions. She treats a wide range of concerns – from back pain to emotional concerns, such as anxiety and depression. Joyce is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of New York and is board-certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She received her Doctoral degree in Acupuncture at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and currently has a private practice in New York City. While she welcomes all patients to her practice, she is particularly interested in treating individuals struggling with chronic physical and emotional disabilities, and she has a keen interest in helping those along on their spiritual path.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

It is amazing to witness the transformation of the patients from the moment they walk into the office and the moment they leave. Their demeanor and carriage of posture is much more relaxed, it's lighter, and visibly less knotted. It's my deepest reward to see this transformation in others.

    My wife was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease at an early age and various other illnesses later; as a result, she suffers daily with constant pain. She had been looking for an alternative to the pain medication her doctors were prescribing her and was referred to Dr. Lilly's practice by a friend/ co-worker. My wife is always eager to try anything that won't result in side-effects or liver failure in the future. Her first appointment with Dr. Lilly was about four weeks ago. The results were so effective in curtailing her pain that she has seen Dr. Lilly twice a week, every week since then. I suffer from bouts of insomnia, pain in my shoulders, and infrequent chest pain--to name just a few. I have the luxury of being a skeptic, so when my wife told me about Dr. Lilly's acupuncture treatment, my initial reaction was doubt. But, she implored me to give it a try. Yesterday was my first appointment, and what an experience it was... Dr. Lilly's office is clean, warm, pleasant, and the staff is friendly. She greeted me as if I were an old friend coming to visit. Her demeanor is jubilant and inviting. She has the sweetest disposition and talked me through my fear of needles--yes, a grown man like me is very afraid of needles; it is all about the pinch. I felt like she cared about the comments I made about myself, how I felt, and what brought me to her practice. We spoke about spirituality and literature and about meditation and calming the self. Now, I have to reiterate that I am a hard skeptic and went in doubting anything would resolve my physical ailments, however superficial they may be. I can now admit that I was wrong and my skepticism unwarranted. After Dr. Lilly's acupuncture treatment, I felt whole again, rested, and alleviated. My pain was gone and my body felt balanced, a thing I have not felt in a very long time. So, to conclude--I can go on and on about how great Dr. Lilly is (she really is!), but you will have to try it for yourself; skeptics like me live and thrive on empiricism and throw hearsay out the window--I implore you, make an appointment; go and see Dr. Lilly. You will not regret it...

    Working with Joyce has been great! An old knee injury that had flared up was what brought me in, but she's also helped heal my back/shoulder. Even more importantly, I breathe more easily now, and I'm managing my stress levels more effectively. I cannot recommend Joyce enough!

    This was my first experience with acupuncture so I didn't know what to expect. Joyce was an absolute delight and walked me through her entire process. She gauged my experience throughout and did a tremendous job alleviating my back pains. I look forward to seeing her again.

    I came in because I was diagnosed with frozen shoulder in both shoulders. This is a very painful condition. Dr Joyce was amazing! I was literally CURED after 2 treatments!!!! She knew exactly what to do including cupping and trigger point. I was a little sore after the treatment but began to heal immediately and regain movement. I was completely pain free after a week!! All I can say is .. miracle! Thank you Dr Joyce!!!

    In the past I hadn't given much thought to acupuncture until one day when I was in a lot of pain. I visited Joyce Acupuncture in the beginning of January 2017 to understand what was going on with my body, which up until several weeks before, was perfectly normal. Suddenly it was in chaos and Joyce helped identify what it was. In fact, of all the doctors and orthopedists I had consulted, she was the only one to even suggest the possibility of a neurological issue! I was diagnosed with MS at a hospital two days after my visit, with all of the proper tests conducted thanks to Joyce's sharp observations. I've been back to her since my diagnosis for general well-being. She is such a caring practitioner who genuinely cares about what is happening in your life and determines how treatments can be tailored accordingly. Throughout my diagnosis and physical therapy rehabilitation, she stayed in contact – checking up, sending me articles, and was a beacon of positivity. I believe in the work she does. You can trust Joyce to get to the root of any ailment and recommend the proper course of action. She is a healer in every sense of the word and I feel so fortunate to have found her!

    After years of suffering from severe hormone-related depression, I can honestly say the results I've seen from working with Joyce are nothing short of miraculous. I have only been a patient for a little over a month, but the quality of my life has improved immensely. Not only does she take the time to understand what's going on with your life both physically and emotionally each time, she offers suggestions and advice for continued wellness beyond the session, whether it be recommendations for essential oils for various ailments or resources to better understand and align your chakras. And these are things I had no prior knowledge of or interest in, but Joyce is amazing in explaining your treatment path and the things needed to improve your journey. In addition to my improved emotional health, my overall physical health has improved and I am much more focused, mindful and grateful every day. Not only is it something I can feel, but it is recognized by friends and family who have seen such a positive change in me. I cannot recommend Joyce enough. She will change your life!

    Great Acupuncturist
    Joyce is calm, patient and effective. I always feel better after leaving her office. She's also a pleasure to deal with.

    1st Time Acupuncture
    Joyce is a caring woman who listens and communicates well. Her facility is a calming environment. Unfortunately, I have been to three sessions and have not felt her treatments have worked for me.

    Like being healed by an Angel
    First let me say, I have very bad sinus issues and TERRIBLE sleep. I usually take a pill for the pain to temporarily go away, but recently I've been looking for a natural way to get rid of these issues. So Joyce told me about trying out acupuncture and OHHH BOOOY was she right! Not only was it so great, gentle and relaxing, but Joyce also educated me on the needle healing process. Within an hour after the session, I fell asleep and actually slept threw the night and woke up not feeling congested. I can't tell you how long its been since I was able to say that. Im ready for session #2! Thank you for showing me a better way to aid to my problems.

    Great experience. Can't wait to go back!
    I really enjoyed my acupuncture treatment with Joyce. She explain how acupuncture works and the benefits it has. She asked me what I was hoping to gain from this experience and if I had any current issues I would like her to focus on. This treatment was for relaxation and I left feeling completely relaxed. Joyce made me feel very comfortable experiencing acupuncture. I can't wait to return for another session.

    True Blessing
    I've only been seeing Joyce for a couple of months. I never tried acupuncture before and did not know what to expect. Today I had a revelation after our session. Suffering from a herniated disk on my lower back among other health issues, I woke up in an amount of pain I had not felt in a while. Saw her in the morning as usual and as the rest of the day went by, my body felt tremendously better and so my spirit was lifted as well. She's attentive and compassionate & I'm not sure how I would have gotten through this day if I did not have the luck of being able to see her before my full day began. I look forward to our sessions not only for the physical treatment, but the mental an spiritual alignment I experience as well. Thank you Joyce for your time and kindness. There are days when navigating doctors and looking for answers leaves you feeling lost and without help. Definitely not what I've felt so far working with Joyce. If you need help and someone who will listen and cater to your needs do not hesitate to see her. I highly recommend her already, even though I'm fairly new to her treatments, she's truly amazing and I'm very lucky & blessed to have found her.

    I have been going to Joyce Lilly for stress/anxiety/emotional heaviness since last year on an almost weekly basis. Each time I go, she takes the time to find out what's going on in my life and really gets a sense of what exactly my body needs. Joyce is amazing at addressing any specific concerns I may have; I came in one time with an awful knot behind my shoulder blade, and she tailored the entire treatment that day to relieving the tension. Also, I recently quit smoking cigarettes, and I honestly don't think I would be successful without her. She has helped to curb my cravings and support my body as it goes through detox (she explained how acupuncture is great for supporting any type of detox btw). Whether you're curious about trying acupuncture or want to make it part of your routine wellness, I definitely recommend you go to Joyce!

    I originally sought out Joyce's services for a very pragmatic reason -- I needed to use leftover Flex Dollars through my insurance. I didn't have a particular ailment, so I thought I could focus on stress, anxiety and fatigue (doesn't every NY-er have this? :) I was also feeling the effects of the winter blues and felt it could help improve my mood. For my first appointment, Joyce assessed that my liver should be treated. This was really interesting because I was born with infant jaundice. My stress and mood have noticeably improved after just a few sessions. Since my overall health is good, Joyce suggested a chakra balancing/unblocking for my latest session, which really suited me – it further addressed the mind, body, spirit connection that I have been hoping to treat. I really loved Joyce’s explanation of each chakra and how they resonate and connect throughout the body. I can’t wait to explore this further and I’m looking forward to future treatments!

    I woke up comfortable for the first time in weeks! Joyce relieved my frozen shoulder after one session. I will absolutely return for any other issues that arise. Truly grateful!

    I have seen Joyce twice so far and will be returning ned week for my third visit. Joyce is professional, competent and caring. She keeps to the appointment schedule, which is something busy people will especially appreciate, as there are few things more annoying than arriving on time and having to wait a half hour or more to be seen. Joyce explains things well, so if you are new to acupuncture, as I was, she is the professional you should see. I highly recommend Joyce Leung Lilly.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I love continuing education seminars. These seminars give me a chance to fill the blanks on what formal education has omitted. I have a special interest in the Mind-Body-Spirit connection. The body has an innate intelligence that has the ability to heal itself once we get out of its way.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Stress relief, chronic headaches, muscle pains, back pains, neck pain, shoulder pain, painful periods, depression, anxieties, substance addictions, those looking to stop smoking, etc.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you eat a small meal at least one hour before your appointment. Wear loose comfortable clothing that you can fold up beyond your knees & elbows.
