About Erika Prinz Freed, MS, L.Ac.

I strongly believe that true enjoyment of life is possible only when the body and mind are in balance. As a former ballet dancer, I deeply understand health and active living, and I strive to impart my passion for wellness and knowledge of medicine to each and every patient I work with.

Practicioner Biography - Prinz Acupuncture in New York, NYC

I was first introduced to acupuncture after sustaining dance injuries. Not only did I experience long-lasting pain relief from the treatments, I immediately resonated with the holistic and compassionate approach to healing. Through my experience as a patient, I realized my life calling as a health practitioner.

I completed my graduate studies at the Tri-State College of Acupuncture, where I earned my Masters of Science in Acupuncture (MS/Ac). I completed post-graduate training in China at the Beijing Traditional College of Acupuncture, a World Health Organization (WHO) affiliate, earning advanced certification in acupuncture and moxibustion. I am also one of the few acupuncturists in the U.S.  who is certified in Constitutional Facial Renewal™. I am particularly interested in musculo-skeletal pain/injuries, women’s health and emotional conditions. 

In addition to healing inside of the treatment room, I'm dedicated to making a difference through philanthropic efforts on both the local and international level. Most recently, I was a medical service volunteer with The Humla Fund, in which I provided much-needed health care to more than 500 residents of the Humla District in Nepal, the most remote and underserved area of the country.

I've also had the opportunity to provide acupuncture services in a range of settings including the corporate arena (ZocDoc, Glamour Magazine) and fitness events, like The Yoga Journal Conference in NYC.  I'm constantly pursuing new ways to bring acupuncture to even more people.
