About Lauren

Lauren Fortuna is a New York State Licensed Acupuncturist, and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She had the pleasure of studying Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at the Swedish Institute School of Acupuncture, and graduated with a Master of Science degree in Acupuncture. At the Swedish Institute, Lauren had the opportunity to study both Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as Classical Acupuncture, which allows her to offer a variety of treatment options.

Lauren has successfully treated a diverse clientele across a wide range of health issues. Patients have sought treatment for issues such as pain management (including back, neck and shoulder pain), women's wellness, allergy relief, digestive complaints, as well as for stress management.

One thing to keep in mind is that every patient that seeks treatment with Lauren is treated as an individual. Lauren does not merely look at your symptoms, nor does she treat people with similar issues the same. Your unique health patterns are looked at and evaluated thoroughly, and then a specific treatment plan is tailored to suit your specific needs.

Women's wellness is a personal as well as professional commitment for Lauren. Lauren decided to study acupuncture after a family member had great success being treated for Endometriosis with acupuncture. This peaked her interest, and so Lauren began to explore the world of Chinese Medicine. Through her practice, Lauren strives to help more women who are faced with health issues.

In addition to acupuncture, Lauren utilizes a holistic approach of methods that incorporate moxibustion, auricular therapy, cupping, tui na (Chinese Meridian Massage), gua sha and aromatherapy into her sessions.

Lauren is currently accepting new patients. Free phone consultations available at (718) 541-5016.
