My ideal patient is someone with multi-faceted complicated issues such as long term digestive problems potentially translating into skin disorders, brain fog, joint pain, bloating, poor circulation, fatigue, constipation and sleeplessness. These issues usually affect the quality of life. The goal is to improve the weak digestive system, in order to significantly improve their "first brain" the digestive system, therefore improving one's overall health including the "second" brain. The organs of the human body optimally work in harmony with one another. The goal is to find what is dragging down the system and to mitigate the issues.

In my practice I offer a unique application of the classical aspects of Chinese Medicine. In Chinese Medicine, there is no separation between mind, body, or spirit. The Shen, or Spirit, is the animating force behind and within every physiological function. Whether my clients suffer from muscle or joint pains, glandular imbalance, menstrual or fertility issues, digestive or eating disorders, gallstones or gout, illuminating one's predisposition and the expression of Shen is where we discover the origination in recovering our health.

I believe people can heal themselves when given the right plan and priorities. I have been in practice for close to twenty years focusing on Acupuncture and Sports Medicine. During this time I have worked with professional athletes, musicians, recreational athletes, adults and children. My passion is taking someone who is acutely out of balance and seeing them through to full function. I do this by integrating acupuncture, acupressure, exercise, nutrition, breathing techniques, herbal therapies, and nutriceuticals.

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.

This treatment can be used for a wide range of disorders including emotional disorders, digestive disorders, hormone imbalances, pain disorders, and chronic diseases. TCM works on the belief that the body is controlled by an energy flow, known as qi (pronounced “chee”), that travels through pathways called meridian. TCM believes that problems or blockages with the flow of energy along these meridians is responsible for many ailments. Toxins, stress, trauma, hormones and even the foods we eat can all contribute to blocking qi. With 15 minuets free consultation, you will find out how you can benefit from acupuncture.

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.

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