About Dominic Sembello, L.Ac.

“Your health is all you have and without it, you have nothing!  Life is too short and we don’t know how much time we have, so if your health is holding you back from living and doing the things you enjoy with the people you love, what are you waiting for? “

Dominic Sembello, L.Ac.

My Why…

At an early age, I saw my Grandmom pass away from Cancer.  She lived with us and was on hospice.  This was my first experience dealing with what death and the loss of a family member.

When I was 20 years old, I lost one of my best friends due to a fatal car accident.  I spoke at his funeral, and looking out at all my friends who were there was really surreal.  I could not believe that I would never see my friend again.  He had his whole life ahead of him.  He was so young.  This was a difficult time.

When I started dating my girlfriend, (now wife) while I was studying acupuncture, she had been suffering with severe migraines for most of her life.  She was only 22 at the time when I met her and I witnessed firsthand how her life was impacted from this.

At the age of 35, I lost my Mom to a very rare and aggressive cancer.  She was the life of the party, so full of energy before her diagnosis and in nine months she was gone.  She was only 58 years old.   I was there by her side for her final moments, something I will never forget.  At this point I was a little older and wiser and I had 2 young daughters.  This was the defining moment that literally altered my view on living and really made me realize what is important in life.   This was the wake up call.  Life is too short, and you don’t know when your time will come to an end, so you better enjoy living everyday.


Losing my Mom was very difficult and only strengthened my passion in helping people live healthy, happy, productive lives filled with joy and purpose.  

Your health is the ONLY thing you have in this life.  You can’t buy it or trade it…BUT for the majority of people suffering with chronic diseases and chronic pain, you have a choice to change it.  Close to half of all chronic illnesses in the United States are preventable because many diseases and medical conditions are lifestyle choices.  


I am the Clinical Director and founder of Health Source Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine. I am Board Certified in Acupuncture and have treated thousands of patients in my 20+ year career.  I specialize in chronic pain and complex health conditions, specifically those who have been deemed “hopeless” or “untreatable”.  I hold a license to practice acupuncture in the state of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

At the heart of my practice are two core beliefs:

  1.  Belief in the body’s ability to heal itself when given the the chance. 
  2.  Belief that YOU have a choice to improve your health.

I have dedicated my professional career to helping patients’ find safe, effective, non-pharmaceutical and non-invasive  treatment options that get results!  Unfortunately standard treatment options for chronic health illnesses are often times not enough, which is leaving millions of people suffering for months, years, and even decades and left with feelings of hopelessness.

At Health Source Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine we use an innovative approach that integrates acupuncture and modern medical solutions in a specific way that allows the body to unlock its true healing potential.  This approach is what allows our patients to achieve results they didn’t even think were possible anymore.

Education and Training…

I graduated from West Chester University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Medicine in 1997, and went on to attend the Pacific College of Health and Science (formerly known as PCOM) in San Diego, California. Pacific College is the largest and one of the most well respected colleges in the United States for Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. As part of my education I was also formally trained in Chinese Herbal Medicine which is an important aspect of my practice.

Over the past 20 years, I have had the opportunity to train and be mentored by some of the most well- known and well-respected experts in the United States and the world. Some of my post graduate training includes Advanced Acupuncture Pain Management Solutions, Electro-Acupuncture Medicine, Orthopedic Acupuncture and Sports Injury Rehabilitation, and even Women’s Health and Fertility to name just a few.

I also serve on the Board of Directors as the Vice President of Pennsylvania for the National Guild of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NGAOM). The NGAOM is a professional medical society and an Office for Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), affiliated with the AFL-CIO. Their mission is to develop and maintain scientifically based standards of practice for Acupuncture and to advocate for legislation and increased access to care.
