Tzivya Kraus is a licensed acupuncturist, massage therapist, and DONA International certified Birth Doula. She serves as a clinical supervisor at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, the largest East Asian Medicine school in the US, and at NYU Langone - Brooklyn where she trains and oversees Master’s and Doctoral students and as an acupuncturist and preceptor in the Labor and Delivery Department.
Tzivya’s practice focuses on fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, and pediatric care. Since childhood she has been fascinated with pregnancy and has pursued that interest as a dedicated student. She has trained with world-renowned birth practitioners including Debra Pascali-Bonaro, Ina May Gaskin, Claudia Citkovitz, and Debra Betts. Tzivya now shares her wealth of knowledge with the birth community at international conferences where she is regularly invited to speak on the use of acupuncture and massage in women’s healthcare.
With nearly a decade and a half of experience practicing massage - incorporating Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Tui Na, Craniosacral, Reflexology and Ayurvedic modalities - and almost as many years as an acupuncturist, Tzivya’s practice goes beyond muscles, tendons and bones to treat you at your deepest level.
