Elisabeth Horesh, LicAc
Elisabeth Horesh became interested in Chinese medicine after being diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, in her twenties. After deciding to try Chinese medicine rather than typical western treatments, her symptoms completely resolved. Elisabeth founded Nurture in 2014, with the goal of supporting patients in their pursuit of greater health and wellness. As one of only three fellows of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) in the state of Massachusetts, Elisabeth provides comprehensive treatment for a wide range of reproductive and fertility issues in both women and men. This specialization complements a broad range of health issues that she is able to treat.
Elisabeth obtained her undergraduate degree in 2004 from Boston College in English and Environmental Geoscience. After working as an environmental scientist for several years, she returned to school and earned a Masters in Oriental Medicine, graduating from the New England School of Acupuncture. This degree included training in traditional Chinese Acupuncture as well as in Chinese herbal medicine. Following five years as a general practitioner of Chinese Medicine, Elisabeth became Board Certified in Oriental Reproductive Medicine. Elisabeth is passionate about helping women and men in their quest for better health and optimal fertility. She does this by incorporating her background as an environmental scientist with her working knowledge of Chinese medicine to assess and treat all aspects of the patient. In addition to being a lifelong student of Chinese medicine, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, cooking creatively, and spending as much time outside as possible.

Hedy Herrick, LicAc
Hedy Herrick is a licensed acupuncturist (LAc) and nationally certified herbalist. She completed a four-year Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) in San Diego and New York City. She has received the highest level of certification through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl. OM). Before relocating to Massachusetts recently with her husband and son, Hedy Herrick ran a successful private acupuncture and herbology practice in Manhattan while also working at a community acupuncture clinic in Brooklyn.
Prior to these endeavors, Hedy wasn’t always a healthcare practitioner. She majored in economics in her undergraduate years at the University of Rochester, and shortly after began climbing the corporate ladder in Boston. Meanwhile, Hedy was experiencing her own health struggles for which she was unable to find relief through the modern healthcare system. That led to her discovery of Chinese Medicine, and she became thirsty to learn more. After years of feeling somewhat unfulfilled with her corporate career, she left it behind to pursue her degree in acupuncture and herbal medicine. She hasn’t looked back since, as being able to help others has proven to be more gratifying than she could have ever imagined.
