I approach each patient as an Individual.
The reason I initially fell in love with acupuncture as a patient is because it looked at me as a whole person with a rich amalgamation of physical, mental and spiritual states – not just a single symptom or malfunctioning body part.
I partner with individuals to address their health holistically, while focusing on remedying their chief concern. Oftentimes, all the body needs is some gentle encouragement to realize it's full potential for health.
My treatment style is based in classical tradition and incorporates a hands-on approach. When it comes to physical injuries, I utilize trigger point needling, a Western physical medicine technique that is especially effective for treating acute and chronic pain.
Traditional Chinese medicine includes many techniques beyond acupuncture. I often use supportive modalities in a session including:
- Tui Na (Chinese medical massage)
- Nutritional evaluation and counseling
- Lifestyle evaluation and counseling
