“I hold a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College, Boulder Colorado . I am a Diplomat of Acupuncture, a Diplomat of Chinese Herbology, and a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine (including Asian Bodywork Modalities, NCCAOM). My special interests include Internal Medicine, Women's Health, and patient education. I believe that treating each patient holistically involves extensive questioning, diverse treatment methods, and dedication from both patient and practitioner. Each treatment not only involves acupuncture but an array of other techniques that allow each patient to reach optimal health.
“My ideal client is anyone that is in need of a massage either just for relaxation or someone who wishes to relieve tension and strain to an overworked muscle because of a work related injury or going to the gym excessively. Massage also helps to alleviate stress and anxiety naturally and helps to induce sleep. I treat each client uniquely and specific to his or her complaint often blending many different modalities and stretches accordingly.

If there is a need beyond chiropractic care, be assured we will not hesitate to refer you to the proper specialist. My staff and I are dedicated to serve your needs and restore your health in the shortest period of time.
