In my practice I offer top quality, attentive, highly personalized and compassionate care to my patients. I have been in practice in New York and Connecticut for over 24 years. In addition, I have 5 years of formal training in Chinese Herbal Medicine with several world renown teachers. I practice a combination of Japanese/meridian style acupuncture which is well suited to a western population. This style offers a gentle approach to treatment that most patients find relaxing.

With experience learning in environments such as teaching hospitals in China, to the VA Hospital in New Haven, my education is steeped with both tradition and innovation. As an avid yoga practitioner and teacher, I have experienced first-hand how important the connection between body and mind can be. Acupuncture aids this connection in order to help your body better heal itself with minimally invasive techniques or side effects.

In my practice I strive to awaken the physician within each patient. To that end I emphasize the importance of daily self-maintenance in a way that takes into account individual limitations and experiences. The focus of each treatment is on correcting imbalances that contribute to the symptoms that the patient is experiencing. The overall goal of continuing treatments is to help each individual recognize how daily experiences can have a negative and/or positive impact on the balance of their health. Awareness of potential imbalances is the first step toward improving the overall quality of life.

Almost any condition can be successfully treated with acupuncture because the goal is to correct the imbalances that are the underlying cause of the patient's symptoms. I find acupuncture is particularly beneficial for those with any type of pain: headaches, back pain, muscle, joint and nerve pain. It is also helpful for those with endocrine/hormonal issues, PMS, irregular periods, menopausal symptoms, digestive issues, abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea. Also: anxiety, insomnia; high blood pressure, stress management, chronic fatigue. People with colds, sore throats, asthma, sinus infections, urinary tract infections, and dermatitis can also find relief with acupuncture.

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