Karen Ortiz, LAc

Acupuncturist

Professional statement

Karen Ortiz found her way to Traditional Chinese Medicine by way of an injury while working as a Respiratory Therapist. Her initial course of treatment allowed her to learn the benefits of acupuncture. This experience piqued her curiosity, and she decided to further explore the realm of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through her studies and clinical training, Karen has recognized that Chinese medical theory coupled with her background in western medicine allows her to provide an expanded treatment model for her patients which results in more comprehensive care. Karen received her Masters Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine (M.S.T.O.M) at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City. With more than a decade in practice, Karen has treated many ailments, but her main focus has been on fertility for men and women, treatment for cancer and HIV patients, mental and emotional disorders and pain management. She believes that Acupuncture can be used as a form of preventive care for well-being and as complementary care during the treatment of disease. Karen is licensed to practice in New York and is Board Certified both in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbalist as a Dipl. of Oriental Medicine by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine). She is also certified in Reiki healing technique. During her spare time, Karen maintains a healthy lifestyle by practicing yoga and meditation.

I came to Karen to help get some relief from lower back pain, but wasn't sure if acupuncture would help as I hadn't tried it before. Karen was very professional and super friendly, knew exactly what she was doing and itwas obvious she was very experienced in her field. The 2 sessions I had definitely helped me to get relief from the pain and relax my back muscles and I would without doubt come back again to be treated again. I highly recommend Karen

The experience with Karen at Wall Street Pain Relief was amazing from start to finish. The office is so modern and clean and I was greeted from the moment I stepped into the office. Everyone was so kind and truly mademe feel like I was at home. Karen was a great listener and you can tell she genuinely cares about her patients and the reasons that they are coming in. She implemented hot stones and cupping during my treatment which truly was the icing on top of the cake ! I absolutely recommend Acupuncture with Karen, I will definitely be coming back for additional treatments = )

I was a little nervous my first time about getting cupping done because I had no idea what to expect. Dr. Karen Ortiz was super friendly and answered all my questions about the process and what to expect. It’s one ofthose really pleasant, stress-relieving therapies that I looked forward to. The hot stones were the best, it relaxed me and helped so much with pain. I love the ambiance of the office, the place is so modern and clean. Front Desk is so polite and informative.

This was my first time getting acupuncture. Karen was extremely professional and thorough in taking my (very complex) medical history. She took her time and explained everything I’d feel with the needles. She was very gentle and yet efficientin her treatment. My neck pain has MUCH improved in only one session! Oh, and she relaxed me so much that I got the best nap I’ve had in years!
