Nan Sinauer, MPH, MS, L.Ac. Nan practices an integrated style of acupuncture, blending several styles in her practice including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM); a Japanese style derived from the teachings of Sensei Kiiko Matsumoto and Japanese meridian therapy; and Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM), a style derived from the classics as well as modern Western physical medicine that excels at treating chronic and complex conditions as well as musculoskeletal issues and pain.
Nan graduated with a master's degree from the Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City, one of the oldest and most distinguished schools of acupuncture and Oriental medicine in the country. She has studied health and well-being for more than 30 years, including earning a BA in Sociology with a concentration on Medical Sociology at Wesleyan University, a master's degree in Public Health from the University of North Carolina, and holding a research fellowship at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She has published her original research in peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
In addition to acupuncture Nan works with nutritional and herbal therapies, meditation and stress-reduction counseling. Nan has studied obstetrics and acupuncture with Deborah Betts, a pioneer in this field. She was a member of a pediatrics study group with master herbalist Rachel Koenig, using theory derived from classical Chinese medicine as well as Western herbology and homeopathy. Nan has studied Western herbal medicine, including cultivating, foraging, and making medicine with her teacher Traci Picard. Nan is grateful to her teachers Patsy Roth, Kiiko Matsumoto, Sharon Zhao, Mark Seem, Rachel Koenig and Traci Picard. She makes a home with her husband and two sons in two locations; Canaan, NY in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, and Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, where she has lived for more than 20 years.
