Cara created the herbal medicine program at Won institute and is a current faculty member. She really knows her stuff! Her company, China Herb is right on the premises so my herbs are fresh and of the highest quality. Her knowledge of herbs is top notch. Booking appointments is easy and can be done online, front desk staff is very friendly, and even though it’s in the city, parking is not that bad! Want a trusted practitioner for Chinese herbs? Go see Cara!

    Six fishes is a one stop shop for healing! Herbs, acupuncture & massage, I came for pain in my back and stayed for the good service! I get semi-private acupuncture because it's super affordable and the grays ferry office is so bright and sunny and the secretary always goes above and beyond. I had only been a few times but she always remembers who I am and magically fits me in the schedule. Highly recommend!

    Cara is by far one of the most knowledgeable, experienced, and caring practitioners I have met. Cara is extremely welcoming and immediately I felt like I made the right decision to come get acupuncture at Six Fishes. What is amazing to me is that she is able to explain and distinguish each one of my symptoms and treats them specifically. I have recommended Cara to family and friends who have asked for an acupuncturist who specializes in Ear, Nose, Throat disorders (she wrote a well-known book on this!) and fertility.

    My young teen was very ill with a digestive disorder. She was on a ton of medication and hospitalized twice. Nothing was working. She was treated by Beata and we received excellent care. We feel that these treatments were the turning point to her getting better . I highly recommend Beata. We also loved the receptionist. Thank you!

    First lets talk about the environment...so inviting and relaxing, you literally walk in and feel at ease (maybe it's the soft sounds of running water in the background lol). Secondly, the staff. They are by far the friendliest care providers I've ever met in life, eastern medicine must have a permanent affect on mannerisms and demeanor. All are very knowledgeable....even Lauren, the receptionist knew to tell me to ask for the chamomile point first, in order to Calm my nerves during my first appointment...Joseph is so gentle, attentive, and quick. I've had a problem with my menses foreverrrrrrr and nothing in western medicine helped me....Acupuncture had result within the first week of trying it. I've been going weekly for about 2-2 1/2 months now and I've had major progress, I've even incorporated the herbal medicine they prescribe you at the other office. I'd recommend them for anything acupuncture can help you with.

    I've been going to Cara since the beginning of the year because of health problems. I lost a lot of weight and I was very sick so my sister recommended I set up an appointment with Cara. I did not have any problems setting up my first appointment. I was not sure what to expect when I met with her but she made me feel very comfortable. It was easy to talk with her about everything and she gave me my very own herbal mixture. I've been in good health for a while now and I attribute that to Cara's healing hand. She's now a special part of my life and I thank her for that.

    I've been going to six fishes regularly for over a year and I always have a good experience! The practitioners and the staff are wonderful. I see Beata regularly and I could not ask for a better acupuncturist. Their community rates and discounts for buying multiple sessions makes acupuncture affordable for me even though it is not covered by my insurance plan. Thank you, Six Fishes.

    Let me start by saying that acupuncture was something I'd always thought about trying but never did because I still considered it on the fringes of actual science. So when both my right shoulder got messed up and I started having issues related to carpal tunnel in my right forearm my chiropractor recommended it was about time to finally give it a whirl. The folks at SFNA and particularly my acupuncturist (is that a word?) Mike have been fantastic. And after two extremely and shockingly helpful and impactful visits acupuncture is now one of those things I really wished I'd tried when I was younger. Seriously, I couldn't even straighten my right arm without excruciating pain a week ago and immediately after my first session I was down to maybe 10% of the pain and almost full mobility. It literally made me laugh in surprise. Pretty wild! Highly recommend giving it a shot with a private consultation for your first visit. Also had cupping done as well, who knew that was a thing that is also amazing?! And also needles are like the one thing i don't like in this world and this is nothing like getting vaccines or giving blood so if that's a concern you should still totally try it.

    I haven't been to Six Fishes for a while but I tell anyone suffering from just about anything (headaches, sleeping problems, stress, you name it!) to give them a try. All the practitioners are so kind, caring, and they really know their stuff! Better still, you have the option on private or semi-private treatment which makes treatments more attentive or more affordable depending on what you need. You also can talk with some of the practitioner about herbal medicine though I haven't been tried any yet. Some days, I've been able to schedule an appointment on the same day though I try my best to schedule ahead. It's been really helpful to schedule as needed. The practice is good working with you and understanding time or budget constraints. They really just want you to feel better.

    I have gone to Six Fishes over the years for a variety of health concerns, from prenatal support to stress, sinus, and cold issues. I've mainly seen Cara Frank, but was also recently treated by Beata Maslanka. They are both amazing. I always feel attended to and cared for when I'm there. I am consistently struck by both the time they take with me and the attention to detail. As much as I like my primary care doctors, the difference in care feels like night and day. I've never felt rushed or felt as though I was being pushed through the system the way one can feel in the current standard healthcare setup. I have nothing but respect and gratitude for Six Fishes.

    I have been going to Cara Frank for over four years, and she has basically been my primary care doctor, keeping my health strong through huge life changes, curing my chronic sinus infections and allergies specifically, but really keeping my whole system in good shape. Cara is an expert in the field, an absolutely wonderful doctor, funny, down-to-earth, and caring friend to her patients. There is no woo-woo or weird stuff to worry about here. I HIGHLY recommend her practice (also Tansy Briggs who is excellent). My husband was a big skeptic, but after seeing my health flourish even during really stressful times, even he began to see Cara for acupuncture and herbs and is equally impressed and grateful. I've been to both practices: one in Center City, and the new one on Gray's Ferry — both terrific!
