Greetings! My name is Naika Apeakorang and I am Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist, based in New York. I am a native New Yorker, with cultural roots in Haiti and Ghana, and a passion for global health. I graduated from Bastyr University, the world’s leading academic institution in the natural healing arts, in 2017. My five years of training was a delicate balance of clinical sciences (Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Biochemistry, etc.) and the holistic healing arts (Botanical medicine, Nutrition, Acupuncture, etc.). It is with this delicate balance that I address a variety of health concerns, aiming to heal the root cause of diseases while helping my clients feel better. I enjoy working with clients on a wide variety of issues, with specific interests in endocrine health, mind-body medicine, and gastro-intestinal health. My favorite healing tools include Herbal medicine, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, and Counseling, to name a few.

In 2011, I received my B.A in Anthropology from Brown University. It is there that my educational and professional pursuits began to center around humanism, social justice, and collective liberation and healing. I am very passionate about community health, education and activism, grounded in local sustainability. I truly enjoy engaging with the community beyond the clinic encounter, through educational workshops, group sessions, and lectures. When I am not working with clients, I enjoy spending time outdoors in nature, traveling, writing, and improving my yoga, and Afro-Caribbean dance skills!

Thanks for visiting my website!

With love,
