I am trained as a general practitioner of Chinese medicine, which means I am able to treat anything from seasonal allergies to chronic pain to menstrual problems. Many patients come to me with no prior experience of acupuncture and I help them understand that in Chinese medicine relief is possible. Through my training, I diagnose what is happening in the body, and use acupuncture and herbal medicine to help people find real, long-term solutions."
"My intention in working with people is to bring integrity and dignity back to the field of bodywork.
