One on One Sessions


“I’m sitting at home after our second session together and I feel a sense of calm wellness that I haven’t felt in a long time. It is amazing to me - I can get stuck in a mindset that my body will always feel unwell and I will also be struggling, and tonight, this moment, is an inspiring relief from that. A session with you shows me how close wellness is, and can be, if I allow it to be, and if I get the support I need.

I don’t know how to describe the multi-layered healing that you offered me today. You guided me through a huge shift of energy. In one moment, I experienced pure white ecstasy, and in another, I felt myself to be a tiny particle in a vast universe. The stones you placed on me were anchors holding me in the present moment. The heat from your hands asked me to relax and trust you to support me through the process.

All I had to do was be honest about the physical and emotional pain that I’m dealing with, and you met me with total acceptance and willingness to work with me where I am. I felt seen and heard and cared for. It has been so rare for me to find that with any doctor/healer. Often I have sought help only to leave feeling less well and less hopeful about getting well, so I know how special it is to work with you. I came in today feeling very sick, and I left feeling very well. It’s so simple and also so miraculous.

Thank you. I am deeply grateful.” Mia Narell, Architect


“ It’s such a blessing to receive acupuncture and explore the healing arts with Consuelo. She guided me through the session with tremendous care and helped me remember and re-discover all the stillness and balance that resides within.” Curtis John Mitchell


“The healings I have received from Consuelo are incredibly pure and profound. I have tried several different modalities from other healers and I can say from my heart that Consuelo is a true healer and alchemist. What comes through her is always exactly what I need.

Each session has been sensational and, I have to say, magical. While the exact feelings and experiences have been different, I have been greatly altered after each one. I am a new person, a much better person, after each session.

Consuelo’s work comes from a deep and authentic place, she is a true conduit for divine guidance and healing. Her acupuncture opens up channels of stuck energy and helps relieve physical pain, as well as clear emotional stagnancy. And her shamanic medicine has a wisdom that lifts heaviness and has opened up incredible room within me for more grace, beauty and creativity in my life. With each journey in her office, I have deepened my connection to Spirit, I have found my voice and I am living with more peace, joy, love and trust in myself. This clarity and confidence has positively impacted my businesses, my relationships and my spiritual journey.

She is such a loving, compassionate medicine woman that has a passion and artistry for the work that she does. Consuelo has a true gift- and she gives it so soulfully- and I am so grateful for her and her beautiful healing spirit.” Madeleine Murphy. Founder, Montauk Juice Factory. The End Brooklyn.

“I first came to Consuelo with some physical issues in my mid twenties. She helped me feel comfortable and safe talking with her and moving ahead with treatment. Within just a few sessions of her guidance I felt my body shift and reorient towards healing. Together we built a place that allowed me feel stronger.  I've continued working with Consuelo on both my physical and mental health. With Consuelo over the past four years (or ??!!) I've learned how to center myself and connect to my own body and mind through meditation and the breath. Consuelo continually brings new learning and thoughts to our sessions, sharing with me ways to build a lifelong practice of mindfulness. Consuelo has been a trusted, thoughtful and caring teacher and healer for me. I'm lucky to have her as a guide on my spiritual journey.” Amy D.


“Consuelo is one of the most magical healers you'll have the honor to work with. She treats clients with a masterful balance of intuition, intellect, and heart felt love that spans multiple planes. She's able to initiate upswing in a single session that takes other practitioners multiple sessions to get to. She is my personal primary support for energetic balance and healing, here in NY.” Tandy Gutierrez Founder & Creator of Unicorn Wellness Studio.


“Consuelo and her healing, gentle touch has helped me so much over the past nine months. I've seen several other acupuncturists, and Consuelo feels by far the best. I am elevated after a treatment, a feeling that lasts long into the day. I tell my friends how much I enjoy seeing her and they all say, "Oh I should do acupuncture." And I always tell them, yes! Acupuncture might live in our minds as going to the gym, something we should do. But Consuelo's treatments are therapy, something I want to do every week. It's a very personal experience -- one that is now an important part of my life. And it feels so good.” Cami Delavigne, Writer


“Consuelo is a rare find - a deeply intuitive acupuncturist who gives you her full attention and presence during the entire session. I have been to acupuncturists where they are treating several people at once, coming in and out of the room - and whilst that is not bad - the full on attention simply takes the experience and depth of healing to a highly different level. Consuelo creates a safe and sacred space that allows energy work to go deeper and blockages to release.” Andrew M.


“I sought out Consuelo Casarotto's practice recently after badly straining my lower back muscles.  It was really debilitating and I felt that I needed some intervention, that it would not just heal on its own.  Despite my pain, I was reluctant to pursue the traditional medical approach of getting shuffled around to different specialists, since I was almost certain my problem was muscular.

I was an acupuncture neophyte and didn't know what to expect.  In my seething pain, I reached out to Consuelo and was disappointed to find her not in her office.  I was at work and having trouble moving!  Consuelo changed her plans for me and came in to her Lower Manhattan practice space to attend to me in my distress.  

She began our session with an overview of my general health and asked several questions to get a deeper understanding of my stress, diet, etc.  She looked at my tongue and took notes.  She explained about the Chinese practice, but spoke to my lay-person's level of understanding and didn't dwell on it.  Her focus was clearly on me, my pain, what she could do to relieve it and what I could do on my own to facilitate my recovery.  

The "needling" comes after a calming yet invigorating massage.  I was somewhat apprehensive of the needles at the first session, but Consuelo coached me through a breathing technique that helped a lot.  She was respectful of my limitations, and avoided areas (like my feet) that just felt too vulnerable to be needled.  But I was surprised at the areas that I could tolerate under her calming approach, like my head, and my injured back area.

I also liked that she shared nutrition tips and care ideas for pain relief.

I found Consuelo to be patient, thorough, attentive to my comfort on the table, and attentive to details of my progress.  I felt like we were a team, working together on my relief.

Consuelo has a positive, healing vibe but is also grounded and intelligent and curious.   She has a clean and comfortable practice space in the historic Woolworth building

And my injury?  I found much relief after a few sessions.  I'm much more mobile, and the pain has decreased significantly since I began seeing Consuelo.” Susan B.


"I began working with Consuelo in the early phase of spinal surgery recovery and we have continued to work together as I have become increasingly pain-free, strong, and have regained full mobility.  Consuelo's gentle treatments eased pain, reduced discomfort and swelling, and aided sleep and rest.  Some weeks following surgery, I began transitioning to less potent prescription pain medication, then moved to over-the-counter and finally to very little and no pain medication.  During these transitions, it is common to experience disruption in sleep, which can have a negative impact on healing.  Consuelo's treatments reduced sleeplessness and also provided subtle support for healing, including promoting a feeling of wellbeing and calm.  Consuelo is an apt listener, has a gentle approach and is intuitive and supportive.  She is a caring and skillful healer." Susan K.


"I’ve had the good fortune to experience Consuelo’s healing treatment twice so far. She has a subtle, gentle way of assessing my health or general well-being that I intuitively recognize as deeply experienced, compassionate and non-judgmental. I feel completely safe to relax into the warm, soothing environment she creates. Her needlework is painless and profound, leaving me beautifully relaxed or amazingly energized. I’ve recommended her without reservation to friends who’ve never had acupuncture and to friends who’ve had lots of experience. All have responded with the same sort of awestruck reverence about their session. Many immediately began to see her regularly. Thank you, Consuelo, for taking care of us!" John S.


"My former Acupuncturist recommended I see Consuelo because I was in debilitating pain from an old back sprain that had flared up under the stress of an unexpected pregnancy and the demands of a full-time job. I wanted better for myself and my baby and didn't know where to start. My time with Consuelo was exactly what I needed.  What started as a quest for pain relief, ended with a total transformation of my pregnancy.  In addition to the acupuncture, Consuelo worked with me to raise my awareness of the sanctity of the journey I was on, in an environment that was safe, peaceful, and where I was completely relaxed. She would begin every session with a soft massage and guided me through my meditations.  The combinations of her work and our dialogue made me critically conscious, and I began to make better decisions at work, with my diet and, in my relationships to protect me and my baby. Consuelo went as far as to bringing acupuncture to my home the night before I delivered.  My partner and I are grateful to her for the state of mind I was in, when we welcomed our son into this world."  Crystal V.


"Consuelo’s voice is soothing...reassuring..healing. She is personal in her approach...and she understands the mind body connection that reveals how injury and disease are more than physical and how they must be in harmony to create optimal healing. There is great strength behind her that gently guides me back to focus with the tenderness of a butterfly, but the passion of a lion."
Stefani M.


"Consuelo is a healing artist that is gentle, attentive, and thoughtful in her approach.  I came to her with joint pain, as well as a need for emotional support. She addressed both of these through a combination of careful listening, skilled acupuncture and other applications of Chinese medicine. I feel respected and taken seriously in her care. My physical and emotional challenges have decreased, and I leave her office feeling deeply relaxed and relieved." Leslie G.


“I suffered back and neck injuries and nerve damage from an automobile accident. My medical doctor recommended a suspension of manipulative therapies until I was seen by a spinal surgeon, but permitted me to utilize acupuncture in the interim for pain management. An immediate connection developed as Consuelo took the time to learn about me and explain how acupuncture works. I felt pain relief during my first session and after approximately 5-6 sessions, was able to decrease my pain medication and, soon after, discontinued it completely. Consuelo utilizes a holistic approach and was interested in integrating treatments to support me on all levels, physical, emotional and spiritual. She radiates warmth and a genuine concern for the wellbeing of her clients. She is a knowledgeable, competent, thoughtful acupuncturist and a fearless and intuitive healer. I highly recommend her.” Diane M.


“I am deeply grateful to Consuelo for the healing acupuncture treatments she provided for me along a 12 week program. I was amazed by her intuition, precision and by the ensuing results of her treatments that were very noticeable and palpable oftentimes within hours of the sessions. I encountered profound transformation of emotional blockages and I gained renewed energy at a time when it was lacking in my life.” Aurora D.


"Despite the many good things I'd heard about acupuncture from friends, I'd never tried it before I came to Consuelo Casarotto. I had a great deal of healthy skepticism about the whole thing and was immediately surprised at the very first session by how simple it was, how much sense it all made, and how good I felt afterwards.  As our sessions progressed, that feeling has become a deeper and more real certainty that I've found something incredibly genuine--something that seems to work on many levels all at once, integrating awareness of body, mind, and spirit in way that's solidly grounded in this all-too-real world, and yet somehow creates an opening to a healing power of possibility beyond pain that's hard to describe as anything less than magical, given the way it transforms pain into peace and hurt into wholeness.   Consuelo is kind, gentle, strong, and wise.  She brings Chinese medicine alive.  A priceless treasure." John B.


"I started working with Consuelo after my husband and I had been trying to conceive for about nine months. After a very pleasant and informative introduction, we set up a treatment plan. My fertility sessions were incredibly insightful, nurturing and encouraging. Consuelo really took the time to talk, meditate and offer guidance through this sometimes daunting and challenging period. I am also happy to report that after three months of weekly sessions, my husband and I conceived naturally, and I am now 35 weeks and anxiously awaiting the arrival of our little girl. I can't thank her enough for all that she’s done for my husband and I." Sarah S.


"Consuelo is an extraordinary healer/balancer of the subtle and physical body. I've been fortunate to experience her skills a few times. Most recently I received an esoteric acupuncture session from her (a new lineage she's incorporating into her practice). As a new parent I came to the session exhausted and underslept and thought I'd fall immediately asleep. Instead I promptly fell in tune with my body's energies and was in a blissful, connected place. Present. A place my busy life had disconnected me from. I've had similar experiences at the end of memorable yoga classes and long meditations and retreats. It was deeply nurturing to reconnect to that aspect of me.I think repeated esoteric acupuncture sessions will familiarize me with the language of the practice so that i can connect to even more subtle and profound experiences. I've also recommended Consuelo to several pregnant women and new mothers, and they have all had wonderful, repeat sessions with her."
