Autumn Bear M.S, L.Ac, Dipl Ac.
I am a New York and New Jersey State licensed and nationally board certified acupuncturist with NCCAOM . My focus in treatment is to help each individual find a healing space that is comfortable and positive. I am passionate about food and it’s medicinal effects on the body so I readily incorporate the concepts of self care through choices in lifestyle to help you, my patient, feel empowered about your healing process.
I own and operate a private practice in the heart of Manhattan and, in addition to time spent enjoying my patients, I am a professor at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Additionally, I have taught multiple programs integrating acupuncture into mainstream medicine around the globe including programs in Paris as part of the continuing education at The Universite Paris XI Faculte De Medecine Paris-Sud and the Wu Ming Dao Healing Center in Moscow, Russia.
My education encompasses Classical Chinese Medicine from the Jade Purity and Dragon Gate lineage coming directly from Taoist Master and 88th generation practitioner Jeffrey C. Yuen. I have also spent more than two decades studying the arts of Feng Shui, Tui Na, Qi Gong, Dietary Therapy, Herbs as well as Epidemiology, Nutrition, and environmental factors contributing to disease, physiology, and psychology. I am dedicated to my craft and readily integrate an understanding of complementary therapies into both my teachings and my practice.
