“I use Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat your concerns, gently and effectively bringing your body back into homeostasis.”
My Mantra: Happy, healthy healer
As a licensed and board-certified practitioner of Chinese Medicine, I design personalized acupuncture treatment plans, advise on diet/nutrition, and can recommend qi gong, yoga or meditation techniques to treat your body, mind and spirit.
Using alternative medicine has always been a part of my lifestyle, beginning in my young adult life with healthy food choices and herbal medicines. One of my dearest friends had been trying to get me to look at working in acupuncture and Chinese medicine, but I’d put it off, exploring western health modalities without finding the perfect fit. Finally, I "heard" her, and went and had an acupuncture treatment. I was hooked and knew that this was what I’d been looking for all along.
I love traditional medicine, and the additive nature of the practice where it all works together seamlessly. With the completion of my training in Traditional Chinese Medicine, doors opened to learn other kinds of healing medicine as well. Cards, crystals and Reiki were added to my toolbox over time. I love what I do and also love sharing this wonderful medicine with others.
We'll spend some time talking about what you'd like to address, and then I'll use Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques and suggestions to treat your concerns and gently and effectively bring your body back into homeostasis. My clients find the treatments relaxing and restorative. Some even sleep just a little while lying in my treatment chair or table.
I offer consultations online as a prelude for a later in-person Acupuncture visit as well as for Herbal remedies or lifestyle advice only (Including Nutritional, Exercise, and Self Treatment Strategies).
Using fine needles to stimulate specific points on the body.
