My experience at IAMT has been very positive. Michel takes the time to listen to how I’m feeling at each appointment and tailors his treatment accordingly. He is very knowledgeable and experienced, and applies different procedures depending on the area of discomfort at the time. I look forward to my treatments as they provide comfort and relief. I highly recommend IAMT.

I had a car accident last September. In April my physical therapist suggested I should try acupuncture. My orthopedic doctor agreed. Since I have started to come to IAMT East Meadow I have felt great improvements. I strong recommend the acupuncture services of James and Michel. Also the massage services of Candice and Michel. Their professionalism, strong expertise and diversified techniques have helped me to soothe my pain and gain more mobility with my legs after the ankle and knee surgeries I have had in the last months. What needs to be emphasized is the very human approach that Michel proves since I have become his patient. He is very attentive to details and truly put himself in patients shoes. Also need to mention Alicia's hard work to have flexibility to accommodate with appointments according to my availability. Keep up the great work guys. Amazing team!

Integrative as a company helped us incredibly during our IVF journey. After two failed embryo transfer attempts, we began coming here and my wife received incredible acupuncture from James, whom she visited on a weekly basis for months before our third embryo transfer. She always came home incredibly relaxed and her blood pressure issues vanished as well. Michel also helped us by giving us a detailed dietary plan to help get us where we needed to be. He was incredibly responsive on emails whenever i had a quick question, and took an hour of his time at night multiple times to have a call with us to go over a plan. We were relieved when our third embryo transfer ended up working. I would highly recommend Michel and James, but you can't go wrong with anyone at Integrative.

I was in a bad car accident and fractured my spine in several places. I have never been to an acupuncturist or massage therapist before but while at PT a physical therapist recommended Michel so highly, I thought I would give it and him a try. Michel is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I am doing much better now. I would definitely recommend him.

Michel helped me get through a severe neck whiplash injury. Mixed with a bone spur in my shoulder due to a car accident.
I received treatment with massage and acupuncture for 2 years.
His practice is informative and honest. My insurance company complimented his billing. I thank you for assisting in my recovery.

Helped with lower back pain

My 11 year old sim a competitve dancer. For weeks she was complaining about lower back pain. I took her to an orthopedist and they diagnosed a bulging disc. We bought her a new bed, tried over the counter pain meds, rest from dancing, anything we could think of we tried. They gave her PT for 4 weeks, but for some reason it did nothing for her. Just as we hit our last appointment for PT (my insurance company wasn’t planning to extend her therapy for any more time) I was referred to Michel. He took the time to talk to me on the phone about my daughter’s history and condition. We made an appointment for the next day. He looked over her film and decided that massage therapy and traction would be the best course of action. During each appointment he was friendly, soothing, informative and compassionate. We literally went to Michel 4 times and she was all better! He is outstanding. My daughter was back to dancing competitively by the end of the month. I wish I had the referral weeks earlier! Thank you Michel for everything!

Stephanie DuBose

I have been having pain in the muscles of my upper back, neck and shoulder for going on a year now and one day my physical therapist recommended I make an appointment with Michel. I finally made an appointment and am so happy I did so. Michel is absolutely wonderful. He is extremely kind and compassionate and made me feel very comfortable from the very first moment. He is really helping to relieve a lot of the pain I have with this very bad chronic muscle spasm and I am elated to finally have had some relief. Michel is very gentle and takes his time with everything he does. He is very patient and explains everything as he does the various treatments. (massage, acupuncture, cupping and a few other things as well)
In addition to being very skilled and knowledgeable, he is also genuinely concerned and sincere. The negative impact that pain has on the emotions is often as crippling as the pain itself. I find his compassion to be as healing as all the treatments he uses and I feel very fortunate to have met him.

Michel is the absolute best. He listens and really address all concerns. He is extremely knowledgeable about so many aspects of good health. He has been an important part of my ongoing recovery from a car accident.


My neurologist referred me to Integrative in 2013 after a serious car accident that I was involved in. Although I had no broken bones, I suffered from constant headaches, ringing in my ear and severe pain in my neck and shoulder due to soft tissue damage that was not helped by physical therapy or chiropractic care. Michel was very caring in his approach and always took the time to thoroughly explain any/all procedures planned for each visit. I had never previously considered acupuncture treatment, but I found that it was most appropriate in my recovery process. I would definitely recommend Michel, as he is very professional, knowledgeable and flexible with his patients.

Elizabeth S.

Amazing experiences!!!
I found Michel by chance two years ago when I had sprained my quad and needed it to be fixed for a physical assessment I had to take. I didn't know where else to turn so I took a chance and made an appointment with him. (He fit me in the very next day, and even gave me some advice on what to do until then!) I was apprehensive at first as I had not experienced accupuncture before that visit. Well, he worked with me and had me back to normal in no time! He was very attentive and knowledgeable, and I wouldn't have been able to pass my assessment without his help. I went back to him for two other injuries on which he used accupuncture and also massage therapy.
Michel is now working towards helping to figure out a hormonal imbalance I have that is causing me to have acne-like breakouts on my face. So far so good! I highly recommend him to help with any issue you may have. He will always find a way!! He works very hard to meet the needs of his patients and is flexible with scheduling. He's knowledgeable, caring, and bends over backwards to meet the needs of his patients!! Highly recommended for any needs you may have. Whatever it is he will find a way to help!

I went to Michel with intense stabbing pain in my upper back. I initially went to my doctor who prescribed a painkiller and muscle relaxer which really didn't work. Michel was able to ease some of my pain on the very first visit. Through several weeks of massage and acupuncture my pain has all but disappeared. Michel has a gentle manner and is a true professional. I highly recommend his practice.

Patti-Ann B.

When I first started treatment at Integrative Acupuncture and Massage Therapy I was going to physical therapy 3 times a week but I was still in constant pain from a car accident a few months prior. One day my physical therapist recommended I speak with Michel to see if there was something he could do to help. I set up an appointment and after just a few visits I finally had some relief and I was able to stop taking medication for pain. It's been a couple of months having massage, cupping and acupuncture and now I finally have pain free days. I'm am still being treated and I am happy to be able to do some of the things I did before the accident.

I have been in pain and discomfort on an intermittent basis with varying degrees of severity. I have been to Physical Therapy, have taken anti-inflammatory medication, and muscle relaxers with little improvement. I finally have relief from headaches and numbness on a fairly consistent basis after a car accident. I know it was from Michel's medical massage treatment because when I stopped for a few months the symptoms started to return.

B. C. Blake

I've been getting treated for over one year, and I've felt enormous amounts of relief. I highly recommend Michel, and Integrative Acupuncture and massage because they are professional, answer any questions you may have, and are very experienced in knowing exactly how to address the affected areas. I highly recommend it!!!

Rich Klein

Michel is THE BEST THERAPIST OF ANY KIND that I have ever seen... No question! .... the absolute best care and I mean that 100%... I'm sixty years old and have been dealing with issues since the 1970s so I've been down this path many times and trust me when I tell you Michel Solounias is the best ! Integrative Acupuncture and Massage is my go to place for sure.

Louis Caruso

This place is AMAZING! Michel is a very nice guy and very good at what he does. Not only is his treatment top notch, he also explains his process very intricately. I'm a competitive runner and he has helped me to compete! 10/10!

Tim Euler

I have known Michel and been a patient of Integrative Acupuncture and Massage for 6 years and I can attest to the combination of his skills, and personal commitment and care that he brings to each visit I make there. The wholistic and integrative approach puts this practice above others. This practice is thorough, and they use every method they can in order to target the root causes of any issues I have had. Michel puts his heart into his work and personalizes the experience. In the Fall of 2013, while treating with Michel, he noticed something not right with my neck. I just thought I had hurt my neck muscles and had a stiff neck. A few weeks later I was diagnosed with a serious case of osteomyelitis. After surgery and recovery I returned to care at this practice and my recovery was improved. For all of this I will always be thankful. Michel is willing to go above and beyond to support the healing process for me and through the years I have experienced great relief with increased range of motion, and less pain and tension. Michel is a dedicated practitioner and, simply stated, one of the best in his professions, and I consider him a friend.

Mary Norwood

I am happy to share my positive treatment experience with everyone. Michel is a knowedgeable and caring therapist. After a car accident over two years ago if it was not for my bi-weekly massages and occasional acupuncture, I would still be in incredible pain.
I have sent a few friends and they thanked me profusely. Michel,see you on Monday.......

Michel is fantastic! I sought help for my neck pain from pain management and a neurosurgeon. They did nothing. I suffered for 3 months. After a few sessions with Michel he helped me tremendously!


I have been treated a few times by Michel and have had relief of my pain in several parts of my body.
He is knowledgeable and caring and will do what he can to help you.,


I am being treated for back problems and find the Acupuncture & Massage therapy very helpful. It is also very relaxing. Michel is very knowledgeable & friendly. Highly recommend.

Jenae S.

I have been going to Michel for over 6 months regarding a problem with my SI joint. Michel has always provided me with excellent care and and is very conscientious. He listens to what I have to say and always does his best to get me back on track. I feel better after treatment and would highly recommend him to anyone considering acupuncture. He is truly gifted!

Rita Mondello

I first started going to Integrative Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, & Nutrition for therapeutic massage for a bad back. Then a pinched nerve in my neck, that radiated down to my fingers, led me to try acupuncture for the first time. The acupuncture helped relieve my pain and sped up my recovery process. Michel takes the time to assess your situation and provide the best treatment possible, as well as what you can do at home. He really cares for his patients and I trust him completely. I have recommended Integrative Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, & Nutrition to many of my friends and will continue to do so.

George Steinhage

A few years ago I took a fall and suffered for a long time from muscular pain in my lower back, neck and shoulders. Since I began treatment at Integrative Acupuncture and Massage Therapy the care has been exceptional. Both acupuncture and massage therapy have helped tremendously with all of my pains. Regular care here has allowed me to continue to improve and maintain a certain quality of life that is happier and healthier. I have been able to avoid medications and injections as a result. Michel is the best. His knowledge of his work and his professionalism are outstanding. This place is the best. I strongly recommend it!

Maria Velez-Then

My first visit to Integrative Acupuncture and Massage Therapy was to address an issue with sciatic pain that numerous doctors couldn't offer me relief from. After several visits I noticed a significant improvement in my condition and he ultimately relieved my discomfort completely.
Going forward I came back for help with issues caused by menopause which they were able to improve significantly. They were also very instrumental in keeping me centered while going through treatment for breast cancer.
Their kind, gentle and caring demeanor make them comfortable to talk too. I have and would recommend them to anyone.

Michelle Gregg

My wife has been patient of Michel’s for many years and kept begging me to see him for chronic pain in my neck and back I had been suffering with for over 10 years as a result of injuries from a car accident. I was resistant to see Michel due to a phobia of needles. I expressed this to Michel so he told me to come in and he’d work with massage until I was comfortable with trying acupuncture.

My wife kept telling me that acupuncture needles aren’t like the “needles” I hated in the doctor’s office. She was right! After 10 years of suffering I now have significant relief from the pain in both my neck and back and I continue to see Michel for flare ups.

I no longer hesitate to call Michel when something is bothering me. I just pulled a muscle in my shoulder last evening and although my wife works in physical therapy, she told me to see Michel first. She said he works wonders if she gets there immediately when something crops up—so I’ll go!

John Leach

Michel has been helping me for several years. I have multiple medical and orthopedic problems including osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. I am also a healthcare professional so I am very particular about the medical professionals I see.

I have suffered with fibromyalgia for over 20 years and I feel so much more able to live and participate in my life since I started seeing Michel. The fibromyalgia manifests itself in different ways in multiple and changing areas of my body. It leaves me prone to tendinitis’ which, on multiple occasions, have been relieved in one visit with Michel. I know that if I see Michel at the onset of a recurring or new problem the chances are he can relieve it in one or possibly two sessions. I have also had immediate relief in one or two treatments at the first signs of sciatica and relief with several visits when I waited and the sciatica pain was excruciating.

I suffer from anxiety as result of the ever constant and changing scope and areas of pain. When I arrive at his office stressed out and anxious, like magic, he provides relief.

Michel uses a multidisciplinary approach being licensed in acupuncture, massage therapy and nutrition. I believe that is an immense factor in his successful outcomes with me. I believe he is truly a healer. He listens carefully to my problems and goals for each treatment and tailor’s each treatment specifically toward that end. Michel truly cares about the physical and emotional well-being of his patients.

Susan L.

Michel doesn't just treat the ailment. He treats the person, as a whole. He asks the right questions and leads you to a better lifestyle and self diagnosis so to speak. Coupled with his wonderful grounding energy, and bedside manner you won't want to go to anyone else.

Katie C.

When I first started treatment at Integrative Acupuncture and Massage Thherapy I had recently reached a point in physical therapy where I was not improving any longer. However I was still in constant pain from a recent injury. I was told to just keep taking OTC meds for pain relief. It's been a little less than 2 months now having acupuncture and massage therapy here and now I finally have pain free days. I'm not done yet but it's refreshing to have hope again.

Leigh-Ann Delise

I have been treating at Integrative Acupuncture and Massage Therapy for about a year and a half. Michel is absolutely great! He is extremely knowledgeable, caring and actually listens to my concerns, etc. He’s helped me so much that I have recommended him to my husband and friend! Glad I found him!

Liz V.

Acupuncture has helped relieve so many symptoms, it's hard to list them all. I have been living with MS (multiple sclerosis) for the past 15 years and until I met Michel and actually tried acupuncture, I had no idea that there were other ways to treat the symptoms of MS without using prescription medications. Michel, has helped with the myriad of symptoms related to MS, that include but are not limited to sensation loss, numbness, pain, balance, and my overall energy level. In addition to having MS, I also have been dealing with a shoulder injury and acupuncture as well as massage therapy has also been so helpful with that as well. Besides being an acupuncturist and overall wonderful person, Michel is also a licensed massage therapist as well as a nutritionist, and his expertise in all areas combined with his patience and the attention he spends to correctly diagnose and treat has been beyond priceless. I highly recommend him to anyone who is dealing with anything from a cold, chronic pain, back issues and yes, something as complicated as Multiple Sclerosis. I can honestly say that he is my go to person when I have anything from an upper respiratory infection, any type of pain, to simply just coping and living with MS. I haven't been on antibiotics for anything since beginning treatment with Michel 3 years ago, so needless to say I not only trust in Michel and his application of Eastern Medicine, but highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Lisa Z.

I have been under the care of Integrative Acupuncture and Massage Therapy for massage, acupuncture and cupping for six herniated discs in my neck, mid back and lower back from a motor vehicle accident for almost a year now.

Michel provides a very professional caring massage, acupuncture and cupping service on me weekly initially bi-weekly. All the providers here are very talented and perform these services very accurately which has resulted in my improved functional abilities.

I am amazed at how well they understand my muscular and skeletal issues during each session. They are incredible at recognizing problem areas just with touch and detailed evaluation. They know how to perform these functions exceptionally well, resulting in improved benefits to my daily activities. They recommend exercises, a healthly diet and muscular activities to help me live a better life.

I am so very grateful for this practice and its founder Michel and I know he has a talent that is second to none based on what he has done for me.

Thank you Michel, keep up the wonderful gift you have.

Dr. Jill Anne O'Sullivan

Michel is a great guy to work with and really involved in his field. I feel confident in his abilities, and am impressed with his commitment to the Acupuncture community.
