Francesca's approach is to focus on the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. As the physical symptoms are addressed, she works closely with her patients to address the root of the imbalance in order to understand its greater meaning and purpose. She then creates personalized treatment plans that include nutritional counseling, essential oils, and Chinese herbal medicine, when appropriate.

Francesca has been working in the complementary alternative medicine field since 2000. She started as the financial manager at NY Columbia Presbyterian Hospital’s Department of Complementary Medicine, then discovered her passion for nutrition and Chinese medicine. She received her B.S. in Mathematics from MIT, certification at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and Masters of Acupuncture from the Swedish Institute. Francesca has been a long time student of classical Chinese Medicine with Jeffrey Yuen, 88th generation Taoist priest of the Jade Purity School.

  • back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, injuries
  • digestive issues, IBS, constipation
  • infertility, menstrual issues
