“It’s my goal to work with you to rediscover what optimal health means to you; finding a state of well being that lets you live life to the fullest.”
The path to true health is a journey. My journey into discovering what worked best for me took time and different approaches.
While in school for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) I began seeing a TCM acupuncturist for my nerve pain and stress. I was getting results but not to the level I knew I wanted to get to. I decided to go to another practitioner, one who practiced a Japanese style of acupuncture.
I had great results.
From that point, I decided that I wanted to study and use this style of acupuncture in my practice. Japanese style acupuncture, which primarily diagnoses conditions through palpation of the abdomen known as the “Hara,” not only resonates with me but also proves to be very effective.
It provides the patient with clear feedback as to the changes that are occurring before and after treatment.
