Prisca Chen, L.Ac., Dipl. OM, FABORM

Prisca‚Äôs approach is integrative, open-minded, and non-judgmental, working with your health care providers to fully understand your condition and collaborate to provide the best quality of care.

Prisca received her Master of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, California. There, she studied classical acupuncture techniques, herbal medicine, Eastern and Western collaborative care, and Tui Na manual therapy. She is a board-certified diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, just one of seven in New York City.

In San Francisco, she provided acupuncture treatments for stroke and trauma rehabilitation 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 powerful herbal formulas helped hundreds of couples 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.

Prisca currently lives on the Upper East Side. You can find her running around Central Park, taking dance classes around the city, and searching for the best burritos on the east coast.
