In Chinese Medicine we see the body, mind & spirit as interconnected. Acupuncture helps treat many chronic conditions through its actions on the nervous, immune and hormonal systems. As an example, fertility is secondary to overall health. If your digestive system isn't working well or you're not getting enough sleep, you may not be able to conceive or carry a pregnancy to full term. We address illness by helping our patients come back to a state of balance where their body can function fully, using acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition and appropriate exercise.
I've always been interested in health and how bodies work. Helping people stay healthy by natural means is my primary goal. Many of the choices we make every day impact how we feel in ways most of us never think about. Educating patients about this, giving them the information they need to make better choices is an important part of my practice. Acupuncture, massage therapies and herbal medicine are powerful tools that can treat a wide variety of illnesses and conditions, but they can also be used to help prevent disease. Fertility happens naturally for most people, but does not come easily for some. I find working with couples to help them understand all they can do to regain hormonal balance and optimize their chances of conceiving extremely rewarding. Helping children come into the world brings me joy. Pregnancy and post-natal care, women's health and healthy aging are all important areas to focus on. I have over 15 years of experience as a licensed acupuncturist & herbalist. Before that I trained in Asian massage therapies, studied nutrition and aromatherapy, and completed degrees in music and theater.
