Walda Laurenceau, L.Ac.
Walda Laurenceau is a board certified and licensed acupuncturist living and practicing in New York City, where she founded Root & Essence Acupuncture. She received her master's degree in acupuncture from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine with a concentration in classical acupuncture. Her intuitive style helps clients get to the root cause of their ailments by guiding them through lifestyle, dietary, and herbal recommendations to manage the internal flow of Qi, blood, yin, and yang to a more balanced state for optimal health.
Outside of East Asian medicine, Laurenceau is an avid student of nutrition, lifestyle, and breath work, and is a self-taught herbalist who advanced her understanding of herbology with Peekle Trenkle at the New York Open Center. Always the student, Laurenceau will be working towards continued certification in the study and practical application of Chinese herbs to offer her patients.
During her studies at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, Laurenceau founded TeaFèy Infusions, a local Brooklyn-based herbal tisane and tea brand focusing on “Tea For The Urban Lifestyle." She created this bespoke tea brand based on her Haitian roots and a strong desire to personalize every cup of tea according to each individual. She incorporates East Asian medicine, Haitian (remèd) remedies, and her experience with western herbs and tea leaves to create custom blends for patients.
