I abide by the principle of Oriental Medicine in my practice: the energy of Chi is the Life Force of the body, and Acupuncture unblocks stagnant Chi.
I urge my patients towards ongoing treatments depending on the health condition, with the purpose of each individual patient feel like themselves again by offering guidance in them achieving their dream health.
