OUR CARE TEAM

Iris Netzer-Greenfield, L.Ac. and Chinese Herbalist / Founder

I’m Iris. I’ve been practicing acupuncture for over 20+ years.  My training has involved working with men and women who have found a new balance in their life through Chinese medicine and Acupuncture. I’ve always had a profound interest in the human body, and the eastern perspective of life balance (yin/yang) has always resonated with me. Today I specifically address female imbalance and have had great success in treating a number of gynecological conditions, including infertility. I offer an eclectic mix of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Japanese-style treatments, which focus on the overall well being of the patient, while also drawing on my education, experience and intuition.

I’ve come a long way since my early post graduate years.  My ‘rags to riches’ story began in a converted utility closet.  Thankfully, my fellow New Yorkers were understanding and paid no mind.  Through determination and hard work,  I have been able to expand my practice to what is now, a beautiful treatment center with a skillful team of healers.  Patients seek help with a wide range of acute and chronic ailments, including pain management, digestive disorders, and migraines, and display continued signs of improvement through customized treatment plans.  Our scope also includes modalities such as Cupping, Moxa and Gua Zha. My team and I understand that, for many, acupuncture is a new concept, so we welcome veterans and newcomers alike.

I hold a Masters of Science degree in Oriental Medicine from Samra University in Los Angeles. I am licensed by the State of California, the State of New York and the State of Connecticut. When I’m not in Manhattan, I maintain office hours closer to home. Noa Health & Acupuncture in Westport, Connecticut is the sister practice to Acupuncture RemediesTM.

I look forward to working with you.

Sincerely,

Iris M. Netzer-Greenfield, L.Ac.

Kim Schwartz-Finkelstein, L.Ac. and Chinese Herbalist

I’m Kim.  I have committed myself to helping people achieve optimum health through Chinese Medicine. I hold a Masters of Science degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) from Pacific College in New York City. I am licensed in Acupuncture and I am also board-certified in Chinese herbal medicine.

My method of practice is based on the most essential belief in Chinese Medicine; restoration of the balance between body and mind is the key to wellness. Drawing on various styles of acupuncture (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) and other holistic modalities, I create individualized treatments that are designed specifically for each person. Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle recommendations are combined to enhance your treatment and speed healing.

I work with a variety of conditions, including women’s issues, (fertility, PCOS, menstrual irregularities, menopausal symptoms) pain management, addictive disorders, (smoking cessation, weight issues) migraines, insomnia, stress reduction, and allergies. I’m one of the few acupuncturists qualified in pediatric acupuncture, so one may assume that I’m gentle, which I am. I’m thrilled to be affiliated with Iris;  we’ve been working together over 7-years.  And together with Iris, Marcy and Sarah, we are committed to continuing a tradition of excellence and to helping each patient individually to achieve optimum results.

Marcy Gordon-Julius, L.Ac. and Chinese Herbalist

I’m Marcy. My goal is to help people feel the best they possibly can, and reach their ultimate potential in life.  I discovered my passion for integrative healthcare during my time in Musical Theater, when my well-being was of the utmost importance in maintaining my career. The desire to promote health in the most natural way possible, led me to graduate studies at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City where I received a Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine. During the 4-year degree program, I completed 960 hours of clinical practice and graduated among the top of my class. I also recently completed a year-long fellowship program at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital as part of the Integrative Medicine Department. Treating the in-patient population in various units, I focused mainly on orthopedic surgery and pulmonology.

I am nationally board certified in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), and licensed to practice Acupuncture by the state of New York. I am also certified and have extensive training in Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation.

I consider myself a general practitioner but feel specifically passionate about fertility and women’s health, pain management, digestive issues, mental and emotional health and cosmetics. It is important to me to take the time to get to know each patient as a whole person, and not just a symptom. I strive to address the root of injury and illness in order to help my patients achieve and maintain wellness.  I feel lucky to be working in such a well rounded environment. I truly love what I do.

Sarah Heslip, L.Ac., DACM and Chinese Herbalist

I’m Sarah.  I came to acupuncture through a personal journey beginning in contemporary art and moving into acupuncture through a personal healing experience.  I have found my calling in Chinese Medicine.

I have experience treating a wide range of both acute and chronic conditions including migraines, gastro-intestinal complaints, chronic pain, and psycho-emotional disorders.  Some of my particular interests, though, are reproductive health and fertility support.

Each treatment is uniquely attuned to the patient’s specific needs, teaching them the skills they’ll require to take their physical and mental well-being into their own hands. I provide effective interventions for many conditions, and believe that hands-on care, compassion, and collaboration with patients – devising realistic strategies for their sustainable health – are the essential tools of healing.

I seek to empower patients through natural medical practices such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, moxabustion and cupping, informed nutrition, and personalized mind-body programs. My unique style of practice encompasses Traditional Chinese Medicine theory and Five Element. 

I am nationally board certified in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), and licensed to practice Acupuncture by the state of New York.

I thoroughly enjoy our collaboration at Acupuncture RemediesTM and being able to use my skills in a truly altruistic way.
