Over the years I have developed a mastery for effectively engaging people in a way that has them be interested, curious, and empowered around their health. I am able to listen to my patients and readily adapt my approach combined the skills that I have to provide consistently effective treatment plans. In fact, when working with people they feel free to ask questions and to interact with their learning experience. I am able to clarify information being presented and support my patients in applying this knowledge.
Additionally, I have received feedback such as,"You explained that better than I've ever heard before! Wow, now it makes so much sense!" I have the skills and the experience to take complex topics and break them down into understandable and useful terms for/patients. I enjoy working with patients and have found that I have an intuitive ability to gauge their needs. even when they cannot fully express for themselves in their words.
In my practice, I utilize a software program called AcuGraph® Digital Meridian Imaging™. This system analyzes the energetic state of your body's meridians and provides you with a computerized documentation of your scan. I use this technology along with traditional diagnostic techniques to create efficient and effective treatment plans and monitor your progress.
