“My interest in acupuncture began in 1986 after I first received treatment. My positive experience led me to want to study the tradition and to offer it to others. The foundation of my practice is in Five-Element Acupuncture. Continuing education has led me to other treatment forms that work well with the Five-Element tradition. Since 2004 I have been certified as an Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist working with addictions. Since 2006 I have been certified as a Zero Balancer. I use Dr. Tan's Balance method for pain relief. I enjoy working with both children and adults, and employ acupressure and non-insertive needle techniques for those who would prefer an option to working with the needles. My approach to treatment is to hold each patient in their wholeness, working from a place that sees human beings as an integral part of nature made up of complex relationships between their anatomy and physiology and their emotional and spiritual bodies. I listen and respond to the body's systems as uniquely expressed by each person to address imbalances and restore health and well-being. With improved balance in the body's systems, the quality of your life will be enhanced.
“THE TYPICAL PATIENT THAT I SEE IS ONE THAT WANTS TO SPEND AN HOUR WITH A PHYSICIAN. WHO IS LOOKING FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT THEIR PERSONAL PHYSICIAN DOES NOT HAVE THE TIME TO GIVE. THE PATIENTS THAT I SEE IN CONSULTATION ARE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER OPINON OR AN ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT PROGRAM USING A HOLISTIC AND NUTRITIONAL APPROACH THAT INCLUDES ACUPUNCTURE. THE USE OF SUPPLEMENTS AND OTHER NUTRITIONAL MODALITIES RATHER THAN PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION IS RECOMMENDED WHEN EVER POSSIBLE . HOWEVER WESTERN MEDICINES ARE OFTEN THE BEST CHOICE FOR MANY PATIENTS. AS A MEDICAL DOCTOR I HAVE THE ABILITY TO PRESCRIBE BOTH.
“My philosophy in treating patients is not only evaluating the signs and symptoms of a disease, but also looking at the person as a whole entity with imbalances causing “dis-ease”. I also believe in the powerful connection that happens between the patient and the practitioner, in that connecting to the patient is an integral part of the healing process. My special interests include chronic pain, arthritis, woman’s health (including pre-natal, pregnancy & delivery), addictions, gastro-intestinal disorders, and mental/emotional disorders.
