With 2 young children of my own, i know how difficult it is to see them sick. I also know how difficult it is for you, as a parent to fathom kids allowing me to stick them with pins. not to worry, pediatric acupuncture doesn't always mean needles. We use various modalities, including massage, laser acupuncture, e-stim and much more.
I see kids of all ages and with all sorts of conditions including but not limited to severe allergies, constant colds/low immune symptoms, runny nose/cough, skin conditions, ADHD, pain, headaches/migraines and much more. Please feel free to email me with questions.

How I was introduced to this medicine:
About 15 years ago, when my father was diagnosed with gastric cancer, he started to use Traditional Chinese medicine to help him through the hard-hitting, post-chemotherapy episodes. Slowly, as my father noticed the effects it had on his comfort and wellbeing, Chinese medicine became an integral part of my family’s life and my proposed future. The whole family noticed how it significantly improved my father’s quality of life; for instead of just targeting the cancer, TCM treated the whole person. At that time, I did not know a thing about this medical system and it’s 2,000 years of history but I was certain that one day this would be my vocation.
After a bit of a detour, attending university at Vassar College and then moving to Italy to finish my thesis in cultural anthropology, I moved to New York to begin my journey into the curative world of TCM in Touro College. Little did I know, this was the beginning of a voyage that would not only take me to China, but would forever change my life.
