Prisca Chen L.Ac. - Acupuncturist
Prisca was trained at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, where she received her master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine with a certificate in Tui Na Asian Bodywork. She continued her training at various hospitals and clinics in San Francisco, China, and Guatemala before settling in New York City. She is a certified diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the NCCAOM and is licensed in New York and California.
In San Francisco, she worked with the medically under-served community at the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic. She also specialized in acupuncture for stroke and trauma recovery at the California Pacific Regional Rehabilitation Center of Sutter Hospital. For three years, she apprenticed with renowned fertility acupuncturist Dr. Lifang Liang, OMD, Ph.D., L.Ac., whose acupuncture techniques and secret herbal formulas helped hundreds of people start families. Her passion for traveling and the healing arts led her to study with TCM physicians in municipal hospitals affiliated with Zhejiang Chinese Medical University in Hangzhou, China, and with traditional Mayan healers in Peten, Guatemala through the organization Healer2Healer.
As a former dancer, she understands how important it is to stay active, how vital it is to get back to what you love doing as soon as possible, after getting side-tracked by injury, illness or pain. People have unique interests, with their own physical demands. She customizes each treatment to achieve the best results - there is no "protocol," as each treatment is unique.
