Emily Siy, L.Ac. Joins the Olo Acupuncture Team

We’re excited to introduce Emily Siy, L.Ac., our new practitioner on staff with Olo Acupuncture. “Emily is a gifted healer and we are lucky to have her as a member of the Olo family,” says Yuka Hagiwara, Olo Co-Founder and Clinical Director.

After a 10-year career in graphic design that required many hours of sitting in front of a computer, Emily felt her career and lifestyle veering too far from a balanced state. Lack of movement along with physical and mental stress led Emily to seek out the natural remedies employed by her grandparents when she was a child. “They often used simple herbal remedies when my brother and I were sick,” says Emily. “After they had passed, the memories of how they cared for us, stuck with me. I later tried acupuncture for the first time as a teenager for simple knee pain and found it to be magically effective.”

Through a healing process that included both yoga and acupuncture, Emily not only found better health and well-being, but also a completely new career path. Emily holds a BFA in Communication Design from Parsons School of Design and MSTOM from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. She is a licensed acupuncturist in NY state and board certified in Chinese Herbs. Emily is certified by NCCAOM as a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine.

Emily is excited to be joining the Olo staff, saying, “I like that each Olo practitioner has something special about them, as if they were hand picked to create the most ideal healing space in NYC! This to me sets the tone each time I come into the space; my body understands what is supposed to happen here.”

Emily is available to patients with imbalances and ailments of all kinds, but those with emotional, pain, digestive health and women’s health issues, or those looking for a little guidance in order to get back to themselves are her specialties. She is currently seeing patients on Tuesdays 10am-3pm, Thursday, 3-8pm, and Saturdays, 2-6pm. Experience the unique healing qualities she brings to Olo services and book your appointment with her today.
