My Belief

From my years of education and research, I have learned that our bodies have the innate power to heal, and my goal is to use the profound and noble practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to catalyze that healing capacity. Through the practice of acupuncture, bodywork, cupping, guasha, moxibustion and herbal medicine I seeks to bring the body to a state of balance, internally and physically, in order to invoke overall health and wellbeing. I believe that we should be able to live in our bodies comfortably.


My Experience

Your Expert Acupuncturist

April 2016 - March 2019

Independent Contractor, Team Rehab of Gateway

As the sole acupuncturist at this integrative Physical Therapy Clinic, I was able to positively impact the lives of many individuals suffering from acute and chronic pain. As many know, pain often comes with its own unique baggage of emotional turmoil and life altering interruptions. Through the practice of Chinese Medicine (TCM), I was able to help patients not only through their pain, but help improve sleep, decrease anxiety and depression, ease stress and improved digestion, all of which were daily disturbances patients may not have correlated to their pain. That is the wonder of TCM! We see the individual as their whole picture, not just as a symptom.
