Let's Connect (203) 805-8962
I bring 20 years of shiatsu therapy and an in-depth knowledge of the meridian system to my practice. My approach to healing is multidimensional - addressing the body, mind and spirit. My goal is to provide the highest quality acupuncture treatment in a healing sanctuary where people feel cared for and supported; rebuilding strength where there is pain, restoring balance where there is stress and disharmony. Whether you are at the beginning of your healing process, or have explored other modalities, I will help you with your personalized treatment program. This co-creative relationship enhances the process and ensures the best outcome.
I specialize in Japanese acupuncture and moxibustion, bringing the work of Kiiko Matsumoto to my practice as well as Orthopedic acupuncture, working with pain and injuries.
