My ideal client is interested in returning themselves to optimal health, and is interested in doing what it takes to achieve that. I use acupuncture and Functional Medicine- science based herbalism and nutrition- to help them achieve these goals. I specialize in treating orthopedic pain conditions, Hashimotos's thyroiditis, Metabolic Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, autoimmune, digestive, inflammatory, and chronic ill health conditions. The mechanisms behind these are one and proper identification of the underlying issues and proper treatment and lifestyle modification can have a dramatic impact. I use modern lab work along with traditional methods to identify these issues.

In my years of practice, dozens have come to me from Western doctors, unsatisfied or discouraged by Western medicine. I hope to offer an alternative means of diagnosis and treatment, helping those with little hope for their health. Building off of the traditions of Chinese medicine thousands of years old and combining their techniques with modern medicine, it is my desire to aid those with mysterious or difficult conditions. Treatment begins with the patient's desire to become better and I can facilitate this desire both in the clinic and on the phone.

I have always been interested in working with people with chronic disease. When my child was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, it directly hit home. I began to eat, sleep, and breathe an anti-inflammatory lifestyle. This diagnosis has been a strange gift to our family. It has required us to be diligent about nutrition and lifestyle choices. It has opened my eyes to the daily struggle that my patients endure. I get it. I approach each patient with respect for their individual experience. I believe it is my responsibility to listen and translate each experience into an effective treatment.

The main objectives of acupuncture treatment are relieving pain and other symptoms, strengthening the immune system, and balancing, harmonizing and integrating the functions of the internal organs with each other, making for a unified, healthy person, rather than a collection of fragmented, disharmonious parts. Oriental Medicine addresses and seeks to find the root or the cause of the problem rather than just merely treating the manifestations of various symptoms. Acupuncture increases the blood circulation to the area where the fine tiny needles are inserted. With increased circulation of blood the muscles relax, and they become tightened.

Acupuncture in Los Angeles - 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. Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles licensed acupuncturists?
A licensed acupuncturist in Los Angeles 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).
