Mary Hamawy, L.Ac., Dipl.OM

Mary Kalil Hamawy came to Chinese medicine through her own journey of fertility and the birth of her daughter.  As a new mom in New York's high-stress finance world, she realized holistic care was critical to her health and the health of her family.  Deciding on a radical career change in order to share this kind of care with others, she moved to study Chinese medicine full-time.  Today, she supports her former colleagues in the corporate sector by offering on-site health educational sessions.

Mentored by medical experts from China, Taiwan, Europe and the Americas, Mary is skilled in all primary modalities of Chinese Medicine: acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal formulas, cupping, gua sha, tui na, and qi gong.  She is a graduate of the prestigious Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, completing approximately 1000 clinical hours and over 2500 didactic hours of training.

As a complimentary medicine extern at NYU Lutheran Hospital's Department of Labor & Delivery, she gained additional insight as to how Chinese medicine can support expectant and new mothers. Mary has a particular passion for postpartum care, and the need to protect the health of the whole family by caring for mothers first.

Mary now devotes her health practice to offering a safe space for all patients to listen to their bodies and to find their own best path to wellness. She has been excited to be partnered with The Yinova Center since 2019 to further these goals.

In addition to working with women and new moms, her other areas of treatment interest are:

  • joint and spinal pain relief
  • stress and anxiety management
  • voice / vocal impairment issues
  • pediatrics
  • corporate employee health

Prior to studying Chinese Medicine, Mary received a B.A. from Amherst College and a Ph.D. from Princeton University in Musicology.  She remains interested in traditions of resonance and how they might be used to treat chronic illness.  She is licensed in acupuncture by the State of New York and is recognized as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (acupuncture and herbs) by NCCAOM.

Mary lives with her family in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
