In my practice, I have a special interest in treating depression, anxiety, many forms of pain, and chronic conditions. Using a combination of old and new techniques, my treatments include acupuncture, qi gong, reiki, & tuning forks. To complement my therapy, Chinese herbal formulas, flower essences and exercises are prescribed.
There are two keys I believe are important to successful treatments. Listening and Continuing Education. Listening is one of the tools critical in finding the problem and its root. Continuing education provides new insights and techniques. I am always updating my techniques and knowledge to improve the effectiveness of my treatments.
In order to fulfill my lifelong interest in health and well being, I left the corporate world to obtain my Masters degree from the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Tucson. Working with people to improve their health is the greatest joy there is.
