I hold a Master's degree in Chinese Herbology and have worked to receive advanced certification in treating immune dysfunction.

"If you are struggling because you have pain issues, difficulty sleeping, or are undergoing mental and emotional stress, massage therapy may bring you the relief you seek. I have helped many people with a wide array of issues--people with very physical jobs, people who sit all day, athletes, people who have undergone great physical traumas and surgeries--the benefits of massage therapy are far reaching. In addition to resolving pain issues, massage therapy promotes deep relaxation and a sense of well being. As your body releases tension, your mind becomes more peaceful."
"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."

"My philosophy in treating patients is not only evaluating the signs and symptoms of a disease, but also looking at the person as a whole entity with imbalances causing "dis-ease". I also believe in the powerful connection that happens between the patient and the practitioner, in that connecting to the patient is an integral part of the healing process. My special interests include chronic pain, arthritis, woman's health (including pre-natal, pregnancy & delivery), addictions, gastro-intestinal disorders, and mental/emotional disorders."

"Acupuncture is a safe, effective, and natural form of healthcare that will get you feeling your best. Treating a patient is not just a matter of giving someone acupuncture. All aspects of your wellness are addressed, from stress management, and exercise, to diet and simple lifestyle changes.

Many patients come to me after "trying everything else," and it's great to be able to give them the relief they've been searching for."
"Breathe Easy Massageworks offers non-invasive injury recovery and wellness massage for revitalizing body and mind. It's a great joy and privilege to support the energy engineered by a person's inner resources, physical state, and conscience, as they respond to input and new proprioceptive awareness activated through their massage therapy treatments. Each massage therapy client is naturally unique and, therefore, unpredictable in her response to bodywork. Changes happen only with the client's willing approval. Because clients are active participants in the process, this positive and interactive approach allows change to be deeply integrated and easily assimilated."
"Each person's health story is unique and deserves special, individualized attention. I believe building a relationship based on trust is a key first step.
