I am amazed and humbled daily by the depth and breadth of this medicine. As I work with my clients, it is always clear to me that I am simply a guide using time honored traditions to co-create a unique path to healing and self-discovery.
I have had the privilege of treating clients using East Asian Medicine (EAM) for over ten years. It has been and continues to be a vocation which I deeply love and enjoy. Throughout the years I have treated many different health
issues from chronic sinusitis to cancer support. Each person I work with has unique needs, goals and concerns and EAM is a system of medicine which enables me to create customized treatment plans which truly meet my client's needs.
As a practitioner of EAM, I involve not only, sound clinical information and methodology, but also my own personal creativity and intuition. The ability to understand your health concerns and truly listening to them are the key elements of successful treatment. This requires the acknowledgement that you are the true expert on your own body and the imbalance which has prompted you to seek treatment. With this in mind, I serve as an informed guide and a compassionate witness to your unique health issues and goals.
Our health care system is in a state of crisis prompting savvy health care consumers to seek out a more progressive medical system that provides them with the necessary tools to avoid dependence on harsh pharmaceuticals and the need for costly, invasive medical procedures. Preventative medicine is the cornerstone of EAM, employing time-tested, clinically proven modalities such as acupuncture, Chinese herbs, tuina (Chinese massage) qi gong and food therapy.
I look forward to working with you and helping you to achieve optimal health and well-being.
