I work with many athletes, from high school to professionals and everywhere in between.

My approach to health is collaborative and holistic; I want to understand who you are and how the imbalance/pain/disease originated, so that we can help the body heal. I typically employ deep acupressure before doing acupuncture, a unique style, and use food, herbs and supplements to strengthen the body. I enjoy teaching people about the traditional oriental philosophy and methods, and also teach relaxation practices and yoga poses.

I am a practitioner of traditional Japanese acupuncture and have studied extensively with master acupuncturist Koji Ichihashi of the Kurumadani School of Japan. Japanese acupuncture technique involves shallow insertion of very thin, delicate needles into points along the Meridians of the body. It is a relaxing spa-like treatment that is gentle and essentially pain free. This style incorporates medical Shiatsu massage while the needles are in the body. I give my patients self-care education, Qigong (energy movement), nutritional counseling and suggest Chinese herbal therapies and/or supplements in a nurturing environment.

I believe that there are three fundamental elements of a happy, contented life. One, we need to be able to eat, digest, and eliminate every day. Two, we need to be able to sleep well. Third, we need good sex life. Based on these three elements, we build life and pursuit dreams. However, stress, unhealthy diet and eating habits, and many environmental pollutions make the foundation of our lives unbalanced, thus, we experience depression, anxiety, digestive disorder and sexual dysfunction. My mission is to help people to build a healthy foundation of life with happiness an contentment.

As a mother of two boys, I'm very passionate about kid's health, nutrition, parenting and healthy living. When Chinese medicine integrated with modern medicine and used appropriately, it can keep kids healthier than ever. This is so important today in US, because children face many more health issues than ever such as allergies, asthma, eczema, obesity and autism! I am also focused on treating Lyme disease. My entire family love sports, so I am passionate about knowing sports and nutrition, preventing and treating sports injuries.

Acupuncture in Alameda County - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Alameda County acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.

Credentials for Alameda County licensed acupuncturists?
A licensed acupuncturist in Alameda County needs a minimum of two years college education and must complete three years of professional training and pass the State's approved licensing examination. The three year program includes both theory and hands-on clinical practice. Most States' professional training programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
