I bring together an approach of orthopedic style acupuncture, electro-acupuncture with EXSTORE method, Japanese meridian energetics, trigger point/dry needling techniques, and soft tissue release into a comprehensive informed treatment for all types of pain, injury, chronic fatigue, anxiety, stress, and trauma disturbances.
Combining my experience of over 20 years as an Occupational Therapist, followed by 11 years now as an Acupuncturist, I bring a compassionate, trauma informed study and hands on body wisdom to your treatment. The palpatory methods utilized provide an instant measure of diagnosis and effectiveness of treatment, which you will realize in real time.
Both Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine have their respective strengths and weaknesses. I believe, when appropriately combined, the patient is well served.
My career in Acupuncture medicine has been and continues to be a pursuit of passion! I truly look forward to sharing this empowering, effective healing method with you.
Wishing you health, wellness and peace,
