Welcome to the Blog

Welcome to Six Fishes new website! Although I have always received great feedback about the old site, it was in needs of refreshing. We have lightened up the look of it and I finally have a blog feed and space to post articles with information about acupuncture, Chinese medicine, nutrition and wellness.

Blog posts will be mostly topical, relating to Chinese medicine, but will also dovetail with other parts of my personal and professional life. They will be directed at both patients, as well as practitioners.

For those of that know me, and those who wish to know me, you are aware that in addition to a busy practice that is focused mainly on internal medicine, women’s health and pain management. I also oversee the Chinese herb department at the Won Institute of graduate studies, I am in the home stretch of a 45 chapter book on case histories of ear, eyes, nose and throat disorders and I own a compounding herb dispsary that services my practice as well as other practitioners near and far.

I also am a city gardener. Owning two homes next door to one another in the city allowed me to create an amazing urban oasis. Stay tuned for pics of this year’s garden as it gets planted and grows.

I love to cook and used to do it professionally, first in my mother’s natural foods restaurant in Brooklyn and then up the ladder to fancy French restaurants. I’m glad I get to live in such a vibrant food town.

I am honored to share my office with two skilled practitioners: Tansy Briggs, L.OM, an acupuncturist with a specialty in homeopathy. Also, new to Six Fishes is Jennifer Harrison, LMT. Jennifer is a masseuse with broad and comprehensive training in a variety of modalities and massage techniques.

Recharge your body and mind! – I first came to see Cara because she was highly recommended for her expertise in Chinese herbs. I was in need of a “body charge” for my autoimmune system and didn’t want the traditional medical approaches that had helped to get me in the condition I was in. Boy, did I get a REAL body charge when she combined her knowledge of herbs with acupuncture! When my session is complete, I often joke that I feel drunk. The truth is, my body feels completely relaxed and refreshed, my mind peaceful. Cara is amazing- she has helped me tremendously with my myriad of medical issues.
