Sang-uk Lee, the founder of Fort Lee Acupuncture & Physical Therapy clinic, and also the fourth generation acupuncturist, integrates both Physical Therapy (Manual Therapy, Therapeutic Exercise, Modalities) and Acupuncture (Moxibustion, Cupping, Micro electrical current), which is highly effective in treating musculoskeletal and neurological related impairments. This integrative approach effectively promotes faster healing and recovery, especially for patients suffering from chronic pain.


In 2002, Sang-uk Lee established the Acupuncture program at Saint Joseph's Medical Center where he integrated both Physical Therapy and Acupuncture and successfully treated many patients with chronic conditions not responding to surgery, medications, chiropractic, Physical Therapy, or Acupuncture alone.
