Beata has practiced since 2006. Her background includes internships at Mount Sinai Beth Israel; The Initiative for Women with Disabilities Program, St. Vincent Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center in New York City, NY. She earned her degree from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, a leader in patient-centered, traditional East Asian, and integrative healthcare.
Beata’s practice focuses on emotional well-being. She sees the connection between our emotional, mental fitness, and our ability to heal and get better faster physically. This is especially evident in the treatment of women and couples who are trying for a child. She also focuses on gynecology and fertility, internal medicine, including the treatment of digestive disorders, stress-related conditions, and respiratory diseases.
It started early with my interest in Eastern philosophy. As a kid, I was fascinated by Bruce Lee's incredible skills, strength, and speed. I practiced Kung Fu as a kid and loved it, and at the same time, I was introduced to the concept of Universal energy, benefits of breath. I was interested in vitality, feeling good, and performing. I loved these ideas, and they pulled me in. While my grandfather was sick, I questioned the care he received and the Western medicine approach to treating disease. Still, I did not really focus on the person who has the disease.
how I work
What’s your superpower?
There are numerous clinical specialties that I enjoy. I found it very rewarding to support women and couples on their way to parenthood. I enjoy working with kids. They are a great change of pace. I have been teaching my young nieces to do acupressure on themselves. It is a lot of fun. I love promoting wellness and well-being. Chinese medicine has so much to offer in preventing illness and improving our vitality. I enjoy cosmetic and facial rejuvenation treatments.
who I am
What was before Six Fishes?
Before joining my long-time friend and colleague Cara Frank at Six Fishes - I traveled the world. I spent 7 months onboard cruise Ship Adonia treating passengers with acupuncture, visiting the Carrabians, Central America, and the Amazon. Before that, I lived and worked in Dublin, Ireland, which allowed me to get to know this beautiful country and reacquaint myself with my homeland.
