“I feel I am best suited to treating three specific conditions, in addition to my general practice. 1. Women's Health-which includes menstrual disorders (PMS), infertility and menopausal disorders. 2. Pain Management-including acute and chronic muscle and joint pains and sports injuries. 3. Non-responsive Conditions-including tinnitus, fatigue, skin conditions or any chronic condition not responding to Western medicine. From experience I find that a multi-dimensional approach works best to resolve intractable conditions. So, in addition to acupuncture I often recommend Chinese herbs or other therapies like yoga, tai chi or massage therapy.
“Pain and illness can be a severe barrier to living well, directly and indirectly. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine treatments are designed to create and maintain health, and were considered both preventive medicine and effective treatments in their inception. Chinese Medicine excels at diagnosing and treating the root cause of imbalances that manifest as painful symptoms. In this way, physical and emotional pain can be effectively alleviated and resolved, leading to long term wellness. I am deeply committed to my patients and the practice of this HealingWisdom Medicine, which recognizes and cultivates the potential to create health, and sustain it.
“I have a general acupuncture and Chinese herbs practice where I treat a variety of conditions from the common cold to pain to women's health issues.

After all, The Neijing (one of the foundational texts of Oriental Medicine) says that waiting until you get sick to see a doctor is like waiting until you're thirsty to dig a well.
