South Philly now has a new spot for acupuncture.
This is owner Cara Frank’s second location. She opened Six Fishes Healing Arts at 750 S. 15th St. seven years ago, and she said she felt inspired to open a second location in the rapidly growing Triangles section of Graduate Hospital.
“This is a neighborhood that is very eclectic,” Frank said. “That’s going to be part of the fun.”
The new location, in a storefront on the first floor of the Osun Village building, had a soft opening at the end of July. It has three beds in an open room with curtains for privacy, as well as two private acupuncture rooms. Rates for acupuncture in a private room are $150 for the first visit and $95 thereafter. Rates in a semi-private setting are $100 for the first visit and $75 thereafter.
A few things set Six Fishes apart – it has a strong focus on Chinese herbs and it has a board certified pediatrician and anesthesiologist, Lynnae Schwartz, on staff at the new location, who specializes in pediatric acupuncture to help children with chronic, severe pain.
The grand opening coincides with the Chinese Moon Festival, and there will be mooncakes, swag and a raffle.
