From the first time I was introduced to Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine I was impressed with its unique and remarkable ability to understand the interdependent relationship between the mental, emotional, and physical aspects affecting health and wellbeing. My respect and enthusiasm only grew as I studied East Asian Medicine and started learning the fascinating practice that has been cultivated for thousands of years. I have found that by utilizing this holistic modality, it is possible to nurture the natural and innate energy that flows through our bodies. By doing so, this process then assists the body to become balanced, centered, and thus better at fighting off illness and disease.
Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine is incredible because it assists and empowers your body to heal itself! As time progresses, my admiration for the medicine increases as I continue to study, acquire more knowledge, and experience its benefits in practice.
In addition to Traditional East Asian Acupuncture, my other areas of interest include: 5 Element Acupuncture, Meridian Therapy, acupuncture sound therapy, and essential oil treatment. I have found that by integrating these additional modalities I am able to deepen the effects, thus creating a unique and more effective treatment personalized to the individual I am seeing.
My goal as a practitioner is to provide a caring, relaxing, and safe environment to revitalize and nurture good health. I am honored to share and practice my knowledge in order to assist others on their journey to wellbeing.
