About Us


Dr. Robert A. Balko, DAc

Dr. Balko is an inspired clinician of Acupuncture and East Asian medicine. He graduated top of his class from Eastern School of Acupuncture in 2005 and has been honing his skills ever since. Rob completed additional training in China as well as volunteer medical missions to Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan.


While it has always been his priority to bring acupuncture to the masses, Rob has been focusing on advanced training in acupuncture for stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI). His extensive work with colleagues such as Dr. Clayton Shiu and Dr. Ayla Wolf has enhanced his capabilities within this specialty as well as non-stroke TBI and pain management patients alike. Dr. Balko's practice, The Atlantic Center, has recently been upgraded to an ADA compliant facility in Neptune, NJ.


In addition to acupuncture and Chinese herbal supplements, Rob offers highly specialized Photobiomodulation/LLLT and Allergy relief programs that can be used in conjunction with acupuncture for optimal healing results.
