The Clinic

Welcome to the Center for Traditional Chinese Medicine 

I'm Dr. Yael Tusk, DACM. I studied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the Graduate Program for Oriental Medicine in New York City, and received my Doctorate in Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Health and Science. I have been treating patients for over 15 years. I find TCM to be an inspiring and brilliant system of diagnostics and treatment, and I am constantly astounded by the effectiveness of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. 


I love empowering patients to understand their bodies and discover the gentle power of traditional holistic healthcare. In TCM, illness is not scary, but simply our body telling us it's out of balance and in need of correction. As a well-renowned Chinese Medicine Practitioner, I have been bridging the gap between Eastern medicine and the Western world while providing healthcare in a safe and nurturing atmosphere.

If you are dealing with any of the following challenges, there's a good chance we can help you:

  • Babies with colic, constipation, or diarrhea (i.e. miserable babies). We see incredible results in about 90% of babies with digestive trouble (including young infants). You can expect to see results quickly. We also treat failure to thrive and weight gain challenges.

  • Infertility in both men and women. Not only does Chinese medicine improve fertility, it also improves your overall health at the same time! We treat couples naturally and effectively to get the reproductive system functioning at its best. Many of our infertility patients have conceived naturally after several weeks or months of treatment.

  • Obstetrics Prenatal conditions including, nausea and exhaustion, threatened miscarriage and breech babies. FYI: the best results are seen between weeks 33 and 37, but it's never too late to try. Our success rate in turning breech babies is close to 100%! Labor induction also available, when medically necessary.

  • Gynecology menstrual disorders including irregular cycle, spotting, long or heavy period, menstrual pain, and menopausal syndrome (hot flashes etc...).

  • Digestive disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, GERD, heartburn, or plain old constipation or diarrhea.  In addition to herbal medicine and acupuncture, we also provide dietary advice that combines traditional Chinese dietetics with cutting edge research.

  • Headaches Acupuncture can cure even the most stubborn headache conditions, including chronic migraines. Most patients are able to stop taking pain medications after several treatments and we are usually able to resolve the condition completely. If you have headaches, acupuncture should be your first line of defense.

  • Pain. This is what acupuncture is famous for. When it comes to pain, acupuncture can be miraculous. We hope it will be for you. Even if there is a diagnosed structural problem, expert acupuncture care can help you. We've successfully treated: Arthritis, fibromyalgia, old and new injuries, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and almost any other pain condition you can imagine. 


  • Depression and anxiety and other emotional difficulties. We have seen dramatic improvement, with herbs and/or acupuncture.


  • Respiratory problems in children and adults; including asthma, chronic cough, and other breathing problems. Many patients respond well to custom-prescribed herbal remedies.

Our Philosophy


Good health can be attained easily and stress-free. Sometimes small changes can make a big difference. Our goal is to figure out which simple changes you can make to greatly improve your health. Chinese medicine provides deep insights into root causes of disease, so we can treat problems at their source. 

I am continually amazed at how effective Chinese medicine can be! What makes Chinese medicine great is how it combines a high level of safety with incredible efficacy. I also love the holistic approach to medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a great first line of defense when it comes to health preservation.
