— Dr. Danielle M. Cirone, DAC, L.Ac


Hi! My name is Dr. Danielle m Cirone. Thank you for reading my bio. 

Since childhood, I have known that helping people/others was my path. My father, Dr. Dennis Cirone, was a chiropractor in Toms River for 40 years.

I was always fascinated as I would watch my dad work his “healing hands” magic on everyone he met.

I earned my BA from Wagner college, and was accepted to Life Chiropractic University, following in my fathers path of chiropractic.

However, something didn’t feel right and I quickly realized that chiropractic wasn’t where I most flourished. It wasn’t something I loved.

I spent time thinking, and the memory of my father returning from his months long travels in China, and the feeling when he introduced me to acupuncture, I remembered what it was I truly loved.

I am a nationally board certified and licensed acupuncturist through the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). I am also a Diplomat of Acupuncture in the state of New Jersey.

I earned my Doctorate in Acupuncture from Pacific College of Health & Science (PCHS) in the Spring of 2020, after earning my Masters in Science and Acupuncture from PCHS in 2010, making me a small percentage of acupuncturists to have a doctorate.


I am dedicated to providing the best care possible and strive to expand my abilities. I am certified in treating Emotionally Induced Pain, Facial Rejuvenation with the use of acupuncture needles, Facial Gua Sha, Cupping, Micro-Current, & Micro-Needling as well as Detox and Addictive TherapiesI specialize in Advanced Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture & have studied under some of the top Cosmetic Facial acupuncturists in the world. 

I am currently living by the beach with my super awesome boyfriend & loving it. We’ve got a dog named Rex, a beautiful baby girl, & like to live well. Travel, food, and fun are things we love to do!

My office is dedicated to my best friend, Sean Gagnon, who believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself, who always encouraged me and saw the light in me even at his weakest. Until we meet again Gagsy, ella.

My mission is to treat and harmonize peoples mind, body and spirit through Traditional Chinese Medicine, which creates a relaxing and comfortable environment that brings your body from “dis-ease” to ease.

Dr. Danielle has put her whole heart and soul into her practice and new location.
