Health Professionals in Rhode Island (RI)
"What I love about Five Element style acupuncture is that it helps to get at the root of long standing problems. Whether you are dealing with chronic pain, eating disorders, relationship issues, deep seated fear, anger issues, prolonged grief, feelings of isolation and sadness, all these things can be worked with with Five Element acupuncture. Though you may not think of acupuncture for emotional or mental issues, in Chinese Medicine they are not separate. Usually it is the emotional component that is the key to unlocking the physical manifestation of illness. This is deep and lasting healing."
"Five Element Acupuncture allows for healing, maintaining health, and the reawaking of the self; Body, Mind, and Spirit. When we align the Qi (energy) we correct and heal, regain healthful balance and know ourselves more deeply. As a practitioner it is my goal and honor to work with patients to help them achieve their best health possible. Acupuncture allows the natural system of healing in the body to make corrections and heal on many levels simultaneously. This is a great advantage of acupuncture."

"I'm dual licensed in RI/MA. Nationally certified with the NCBTMB. Their goal, like mine, is to provide the highest standards of care in the massage/bodywork profession.

"NeuroKinetic TherapyŽ (NKT) allows my 25 years experience to address most physical pain patterns. Dysfunctional movement patterns and coordination issues begin in the brain. The body is miraculous in its ability to "borrow from Peter to pay Paul". If something is not working properly, your brain will make some muscles overactive and some underactive creating an imbalance that can traverse your whole body. Your brain adapts to a compensation pattern and holds that until it is convinced to change. NKT convinces it to change and movement becomes easier, you gain greater range of motion and your body is less painful."
