In practice for more than 30 years, Six Fishes has treated thousands of patients with a wide range of complex disorders and illnesses. The practitioners Six Fishes are highly trained in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Our team has a combined 80 years of clinical experience. We feel strongly that Chinese Medicine is one of the most pragmatic and effective options to treat disease and alleviate suffering.

Acupuncture originated in China over 2,500 years ago and continues to be used today by much of the world’s population. Additionally, it is estimated that 80% of the world’s population relies on herbal medicine as part of their health care. It is for this reason that continued learning and discovery in this ancient healing practice is ongoing among all members of the Six Fishes team.

Cara Frank is the founder of Six Fishes. In addition to her patient practice, she is the Director of Chinese Herbology at the Won Institute of Graduate Studies. Her passion about herbal medicine led her to establish the very first herbal dispensary in the United States. She recently completed a book of commentary on ear, nose and throat disorders for publication in early 2014. Because of the dual expertise of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, Six Fishes practitioners are often sought out for consultations by other acupuncturists. The team welcomes the opportunity to not only learn, but to share the learning with others in the community.


Simply the best – I found Cara four years ago when I was seven months pregnant with twins and looking for a practioner to help me avoid a C-section. No no one would see me—until I called Cara. I see her still, only now I’m recovering from cancer. Now as then, she helps me help myself. She provides truly person-centered care, taking the time to listen and respond. The new office is warm and relaxing and the herbs are awesome. I would follow her anywhere—she is the best.
