About Transformational Acupuncture

About Our Acupuncture Clinic

First and foremost, our clinic is a place for people to slow down, get in touch with themselves, and regain their physical, mental and emotional health. The clinic is a oasis in the city—many clients comment how peaceful and calm the clinic feels right when they walk in the door.

A Note From the Founder

I started Transformational Acupuncture in 2007. Beginning as a solo practice, Transformational Acupuncture has evolved into a thriving multi-practitioner group practice in the middle of Washington DC’s Dupont Circle neighborhood.

Transformation: The Heart of Our Practice

Beginning in my early 20’s, I started not feeling so hot. Having pretty much burned myself out from overextending myself in undergrad, combined with a long-term natural tendency toward anxiety, depression, and GI issues, my emotional and physical health took a downturn. Which lasted for 10 years. That was fun! (You can see my story in greater detail here).

Luckily, two things came my way. One—a strong and lasting interest in healing myself using holistic, natural methods. Two—a deep and abiding interest in spirituality and profound emotional and psychological transformation. Between these two interests, I was able to transform and heal myself at a deep level.

Having seen firsthand the amazing value and impact of holistic healing, deep inner work and lifestyle change, I’ve made it my life’s work to offer these incredible resources to our community.

A wonderful, caring team

I am lucky to be joined by Nadia Bouhdili, my life partner and clinic co-owner, who joined forces with me in 2013.

Our focus each day is to help each of our clients heal their health issues naturally, and to provide a space of peace and healing in the hectic DC environment.

We look forward to working with you!

Best Regards,
Jeremy Riesenfeld, L.Ac., M.Ac.
