Further, she has Bachelor’s degree in the arts from New York University and a deep understanding of anatomical movement from years of dedicated yoga practice.


Rachel was raised in a family of medical professionals. Her mother’s focus was in mental health and her father’s was in physical health. Rachel’s interest in Chinese medicine was stimulated because of the connection it draws between the mental and physical aspects of being human, and the desire to help people achieve balance between the two. She felt Chinese Medicine was a uniting modality that weaves these different dimensions of human experience together.

Her treatments may consist of various techniques of acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, tuina, and nutritional advice. In addition to these hands-on modalities, she has a special interest in working with Chinese herbal remedies and food-therapy.

Rachel’s intention is to help her patients to be their best selves. As an attentive listener and a compassionate person, Rachel approaches her practice life with a sense of humor and an open mind. She is deeply honored to be a member of the Six Fishes team.

Recommend strongly for fertility treatments!!! – I have been seeing Cara for 9 months now. When I first saw Cara, I had six pregnancies of which five miscarried. I had been going to fertility doctors for 4 years after the second miscarriage. It did result in 1 live birth which I am very happy about. I went through numerous treatments with fertility drugs and IUI in hopes of having a second baby. Eventually, I gave up - the drugs were affecting me emotionally and physically and I was also advised by my fertility doctor that it would not be prudent to subject me to more drugs. I had heard that acupuncture was effective at treating fertility. My visits to another acupuncturist did not yield results. I moved back to Philadelphia and my previous acupuncturist recommended strongly for me to see Cara. Cara, from our initial meeting, provided a comforting and compassionate environment for me. She understood all the emotional and physical issues I was experiencing. Soon after seeing her, I became pregnant. She provided a holistic approach to keeping my pregnancy with a diet to make sure the baby “sticks” and herbs to keep the pregnancy strong. She was always available for my needs through visits, email and phone calls. I really felt she was personally invested in making sure the baby made it. I am now on my 39th week and happily anticipating the birth of my baby. This has been the most supportive and productive healthcare I have had and opened my eyes to a more balanced, healthier lifestyle with the use of Chinese medicine. She definitely does not take a cookie cutter approach to treating her patients, and customizes care based on a person’s needs and lifestyle!
