I believe that every patient is unique and look forward to creating your best treatment strategy, whether this involves using only acupuncture for your health concerns or bringing in other providers or modalities such as nutrition, physical therapy, massage, yoga, or personal training as needed. I am happy to work with your doctor or specialist in providing integrative medical care personalized for you.
