New Paltz Acupuncture Health Care Associates


Peter Dubitsky opened Acupuncture Health Care in New Paltz, NY in 1991. Callie Brown joined the practice in 1994. They are both highly qualified and very experienced acupuncturists dedicated to providing personalized quality acupuncture care in a private setting. Their New Paltz office specializes in the treatment of acute and chronic pain conditions.

They both attended one of the premier colleges of acupuncture in the United States, the Tri-State College of Acupuncture, which is the only college offering training in Acupuncture Physical Medicine, developed by Dr. Mark Seem, the founder of Tri-State. This style of acupuncture combines classical Chinese acupuncture with trigger point acupuncture, and is highly effective in the treatment of pain conditions. It provides relief of pain, improvement in function, and it promotes healing.



Callie Brown, L.Ac

Callie Brown began her professional training with completion of the pre-med program at Cornell University and graduation with a degree in Clinical Nutrition.  Though initially intending to enter medical school, her personal experiences with the medical treatment of an ill parent,  facilitated her desire to provide more for people, and furthered her interest in “complementary and alternative” medicine and healing. This interest lead her to complete her training at the Tri-State Insitute of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and earn a NYS License in Acupuncture in 1994.

Callie is a warm and caring practitioner, and a very skilled Acupuncturist. She integrates various acupuncture treatment techniques (trigger point acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, laser acupuncture, cupping) with Asian bodywork methods in acupuncture treatments. She also integrates her knowledge of nutrition and health care to provide education to her patients about healthy lifestyle choices and self-care.

In addition to her work at Acupuncture Health Care Associates, Callie has had experience in integrative medical care, having worked eight years in a busy medical office integrating acupuncture with medical care, in the treatment of pain conditions, functional disorders and addiction withdrawal syndromes.
