I provide a holistic approach to wellness and take into consideration all aspects of health to make a proper diagnosis. In doing this I ensure that I treat the root cause of any symptom or disease. Symptoms shouldn't be distorted by medications but treated based on a persons individual needs and underlying imbalances to naturally create wellness. Stress can be a major factor in the development of disease as well as an aggravating factor that worsens virtually all conditions. I have several stress reducing techniques that I incorporate into my treatments that have proven extremely beneficial to reduce symptoms and improve health.

Caring for our skin as we age isn't about expensive creams, serums, magic lotions and tonics. It's about aging with grace and honoring the wisdom that comes with the passage of time. It's about compassion for ourselves and giving back to a body that has given us so much. Those that resonate with this approach recognize that beauty emanates from within and are seeking holistic treatments that promote self-care as a strategy to aging beautifully.

In my professional experience as an acupuncturist I have had the privilege of getting to know some really wonderful people. Each patient brings their unique health challenges which provide us both with the opportunity to learn what it means to be truly ALIVE! While no one wants to experience pain or illness, at some time or another we each may have a need for care or to be cared for. This is the best time to make smart choices for your health. Whether you have a simple ache or pain or something much more complex, I'm confident acupuncture can help.

Acupuncture in Carlsbad - 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. Carlsbad 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 Carlsbad licensed acupuncturists?
A licensed acupuncturist in Carlsbad 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).
