Acupuncture & Herbs
Anna Kreitzer, LAc, MS
Acupuncturist & Herbalist
Anna is a licensed and board-certified acupuncturist with a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Health and Science.
Growing up in a household with two Western medical doctors, Anna was surrounded by the presence of care. She was deeply influenced by that environment and always recognized within herself a strong desire to help others. She found various ways to fulfill that impulse, both working for organizations with strong social missions and serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer, before finding her true passion in Chinese Medicine.
Her first encounter with Eastern medicine came nearly 20 years ago when she was introduced to Ayurvedic medicine. It helped her address some imbalances she had been experiencing and was the beginning of her fascination with alternative forms of healing. She was eventually led to discovering Chinese Medicine, which has shaped her life ever since. She is inspired by the intuitive nature and holistic approach to healing that this medicine has to offer. She values how it seeks to correct imbalances in a person’s physical, mental, and emotional states by looking at complex interactions within the whole.
Anna’s empathetic and compassionate approach prioritizes creating a safe environment for her patients to heal. She believes in the incredible and innate potential that exists in each of us, beyond what our rational minds can comprehend. Her approach is to set the stage for that potential to flourish so her patients can access the wisdom of their body’s healing power.
In her spare time, Anna loves to grow flowers in her backyard in Brooklyn and spend time at Fort Greene park with her dog.
