I am a down-to-earth (but still-above-the-ground) acupuncturist with a good sense of humor, hair color that's always changing, and a deep interest in my patients' lives. Clients like my personality, which puts them at ease, my gentle needling style, and the fact that I listen and am genuinely interested in what they have to say. My goal in my practice is to have good relationships with my clients and to see them healthy, strong, and enjoying life.

Are you tired of dealing with pain? Tired of an old injury holding you back from doing the things you love? Our bodies do an amazing job of recovering from injuries, but if the injury is severe enough you may need help to recover fully.

I incorporate my background in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine with my knowledge of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. This allows me to combine both Eastern and Western Medicine while giving treatments. I have found that by combining both types of medicine, my patients present with quicker and longer lasting results. I also encourage my patients to ask questions so they too can learn how to improve their way of life by preventative forms of medicine. My practice offers a worry free environment, with friendly staff and the latest in treatment modalities.

Definition of acupuncture: it balances the Qi/Ki in the channels (meridians). Therefore when there are blockages in the channels, pain, anxiety, inability to conceive occur. Acupuncture needles resolve those blockages, and health flourish. I maintained an acupuncture practice for 10 years in a community health center affiliated with Bastyr University in Kent, WA now called Healthpoint. I am a graduate of the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago and nationally board certified in acupuncture (NCCAOM) since 1988. Look forward to a relaxing and pleasant experience, as you will hardly feel thin smooth acupuncture needles.

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