Nanci Simari, L.Ac.  ~ Your acupuncturist!

An acupuncturist since 2005, Nanci has successfully treated thousands of patients with a wide range of issues. She is skilled in all aspects of general health, although most commonly treated is pain. Low back pain, neck pain, joint pain, sciatica, headaches, migraines, rheumatoid and osteo arthritis, stomach pain, PMS. She also treats psychological/emotional disorders primarily anxiety and depression.

Nanci's interest in western (aka European/Native American based) herbs started in 1995 when she bought the herbal bible: "Back To Eden" by Jethro Kloss, and was fascinated with the stories of this country doctor who travelled to aid those infirm. Through a 10 point regimen which included fresh air, sunshine, water, fresh food, massage, and herbal medicine, he worked wonders. Nanci then became an apprentice to a modern herbalist in NYC for 3 years, participated in an intensive work-study program at Herb Pharm, and attended herbal classes and seminars before embarking upon acupuncture school.

Her basic philosophy is: when you take care of your body and mind, they will take care of you. At Acupuncture & Herbs, Nanci infuses your treatment with a few extra points to help with your overall health and well-being. She will suggest herbs that help your condition as they help resolve the issue that may have made, for example, your back pain worse- like Yang Nourishing herbs, or Liver Clearing herbs. If you want to just stick to the issue at hand, that is also certainly possible. 

Nanci is a communicator who tries to work with YOU to help you achieve your healthful goals in a gentle but expedient manner.
