Our care team

Iris Netzer-Greenfield, L.Ac. / D.O.M. / 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 through Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Since I was little, I’ve always had a profound interest in the human body. The Eastern perspective of life-balance (yin/yang) resonates with me, in everything I do personally and professionally. At Acupuncture Remedies we offer female focused treatments, an eclectic mix of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Japanese-style treatments.  My healing approach is drawn from my education, clinical experience and intuition. I am also trained in Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT), a newly introduced powerful technique that provides the longest relief from allergy symptoms.

I’ve come a long way since my post graduate years. My ‘rags to riches’ story began in a converted utility closet. Thankfully, patients were understanding and paid no mind to its modest size. By virtue of hard work, my (then) simple practice has expanded to what is now a beautiful treatment center with a skillful team of healers who offer personalized care – an ideology that I/we safeguard! Our patients seek help with a wide range of acute and chronic ailments, including pain management, digestive disorders, 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. We welcome veterans, newcomers, traditional and non-traditional families.

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 Remedies.

I look forward to working with you.

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

I’m Kim. I have committed myself to helping people achieve optimum health through Chinese Medicine for over a decade. 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. Iris and I have been working together over 10-years. Together along with Iris and Karen we are committed to continuing a tradition of excellence and to helping each patient individually to achieve optimum results.

Karen Grzelewski, L.Ac.

I’m Karen. Before becoming a healer I worked in print and television news producing, reporting and designing various reports. All that hard work led to an injury that was resistant to any remedy western medicine could provide and it seemed as though surgery might be the only option left. My chiropractor suggested I try acupuncture and referred me to someone she knew. I went not expecting anything and within 3 visits…no more pain.

I was so taken with this medicine that I decided to study it and so, here I am with one goal in mind…to help you feel amazing.

Lifestyle counseling, reproductive health, stress management and pain relief are the focus of my practice.

I hold a Masters of Science in Acupuncture from Pacific College in New York and a certificate in Intrapersonal Counseling Psychology from Sophia University in Palo Alto, CA.

I am licensed to practice acupuncture in New York and New Jersey. My Doctorate in Acupuncture will be conferred in August 2021. I look forward in serving this community and working alongside this wonderful team of amazing healers.

Karen Whitten, L.Ac, Chinese Herbalist

I’m Karen W. I began my love of Chinese medicine through studies of Tai Chi and Qi Gong with Master Yun Xiang Tseng. I found this ancient system of medicine and self- healing to be fascinating. At the time, I was working for a large corporation, and discovered that acupuncture was extremely therapeutic for the stress I was experiencing. I became hooked. A few years later, I found that acupuncture was beneficial in helping me conceive my daughter. This experience then prompted me to share the amazing benefits of acupuncture, and give back to the community. I went back to school, and now I am fortunately in a position to help people heal from the inside out, and find balance. I like to focus on healing the whole person. All of our body systems are connected. When one is out of balance, it can create disharmony within the body. This can manifest as pain, stress, imbalance in women’s health, chronic headaches, anxiety, depression, insomnia and gastrointestinal issues, to name a few. It is my goal to create an individualized treatment plan for each patient to help them achieve and maintain health and well-being. I use a variety of acupuncture methods, both TCM and Classical, as well as Chinese herbs to achieve this. I hold a master’s degree from Pacific College of Health and Science in New York, and am a doctoral candidate at Pacific College San Diego. I am a licensed acupuncturist in the state of New York, and look forward to working with you, and helping you on your journey to wellness.
