New York College is celebrating its 30th anniversary having been founded in 1981, growing out of a professional holistic health clinic and the patient requests to learn the techniques that were being used to heal them. It expanded as interest in learning the Eastern healing arts and their integration with Western medicine gained awareness in the community. A college level curriculum in Massage Therapy was developed and approved by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York, the first in the State. It was registered as an Associate degree program in 1996, the first degree program in therapeutic bodywork in the United States.

In 1992, the College was the first institution in the State to register an Acupuncture program. This program, along with the Oriental Medicine program, was granted combined Bachelors/Masters degree status in 1998. Both of these graduate level programs at New York College of Health Professions have been accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) since 1996. In May 2007, New York College received institutional accreditation by the New York State Board of Regents and the Commissioner of Education, a nationally recognized accrediting agency. It is the only college on Long Island in this field to have institutional accreditation.

Today, this premier institution of holistic medicine is recognized worldwide. New York College of Health Professions is located in Syosset on the north shore of Long Island, and also owns a 35-acre medical facility in Luo Yang, People's Republic of China, where students, alumni, staff, faculty and friends can visit during College sponsored 2-week cultural immersion trips.

New York College is committed to the maintenance and enhancement of health - physical, psychological, spiritual and institutional, and to enrolling the highest qualified and motivated students.

The community benefits by receiving massage therapy, acupuncture, herbal medicine and herbal consults, reflexology, facial rejuvenation and holistic nursing treatments from interns under the supervision of licensed, experienced practitioners at discount prices.

New York College also has a wide-ranging offering of Continuing Education classes for health care professionals and the public including Holistic Nursing for Registered Nurses and T'ai Chi or Yoga Instructor Certification.
