Noa Health and Acupuncture launched in December 2015, the sister practice to Manhattan's Acupuncture Remedies. Same founder, Iris Netzer-Greenfield / MAcOM/ Chinese Herbalist, has set forth to offer female-focused Acupuncture therapy in her home town of Westport. Her space warrens an intimate and tranquil setting, conducive to relaxation, comfort - and of course healing.
Western mainstream has slowly come to recognize the benefits of acupuncture, and for more than two decades Iris has been working with men and women who seek balance in their lives through this non-Western alternative. At Noa Health, Iris gives prominence to women's disorders and has great success in treating a number of gynecological conditions, including fertility challenges, as well as a wide range of other ailments, like chronic pain, digestive orders, and migraines. She also offers cosmetic acupuncture treatments.
Iris provides her patients a customized treatment plan, using an eclectic mix of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Japanese-style treatments, which focus on the overall well-being of the patient. Her scope includes Cupping, Moxa and Gua Zha modalities, used interchangeably. For many, acupuncture is a new concept, and welcomes veterans and newcomers alike.
Iris holds a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine from Samra University in Los Angeles, and is licensed to practice in California, New York, and Connecticut. Iris is an active member of NCCAOM and ASNY and lives in Westport, CT with her husband, and their three children.
Dr. Marcy Julius joins Noa Health after moving to Connecticut from New York City where she has worked with Iris at Acupuncture Remedies for the past five years. Growing up as a singer and dancer, Marcy discovered her passion for acupuncture and Chinese medicine while it helped her through illness and injuries, knowing that her wellbeing was of the utmost importance in maintaining her career.
Upon discovering her true calling as a healer, she was led to pursue graduate studies at the Pacific College of Health and Science where she earned her Masters of Science followed by her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Additionally, Marcy completed a year-long fellowship program at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital as part of the Integrative Medicine Department. She has achieved national board certification in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), and is licensed to practice Acupuncture in Connecticut and New York. Marcy is especially passionate about fertility and women’s health, pain management, digestive disorders, mental and emotional health, and is certified in acupuncture facial rejuvenation.
It is important to her to take the time to get to know each patient as a whole person, and not just a list symptoms. She strives to address the root of injury and illness in order to help her patients achieve and maintain wellness. Marcy lives in Fairfield, CT with her husband and daughter.
