"My interest in acupuncture began in 1986 after I first received treatment. My positive experience led me to want to study the tradition and to offer it to others. The foundation of my practice is in Five-Element Acupuncture. Continuing education has led me to other treatment forms that work well with the Five-Element tradition. Since 2004 I have been certified as an Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist working with addictions. Since 2006 I have been certified as a Zero Balancer. I use Dr. Tan's Balance method for pain relief. I enjoy working with both children and adults, and employ acupressure and non-insertive needle techniques for those who would prefer an option to working with the needles. My approach to treatment is to hold each patient in their wholeness, working from a place that sees human beings as an integral part of nature made up of complex relationships between their anatomy and physiology and their emotional and spiritual bodies. I listen and respond to the body's systems as uniquely expressed by each person to address imbalances and restore health and well-being. With improved balance in the body's systems, the quality of your life will be enhanced."
