Japanese Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can have profound recuperative and rejuvenating effects on your physical, mental and emotional states.
It promotes balance and restoration, enhances immunity, alleviates pain, improves function and fosters a sense of well-being.
The healing power of touch therapy is an essential part of creating health and wellness. Regular appointed massage can have profound effects; active movements and indirect approaches using passive holds can significantly reduce stress,
relieve acute and chronic pain, relieve sore muscles, increase circulation and detoxification, and promote deep relaxation.

Providing 23 years of experience experience in the healing arts
My practice in (w)holistic health is rooted in
the traditions and foundational knowledge of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
I have successfully worked with people of all ages, to eliminate or improve function from many conditions and have provided relief and recovery from all types of acute and chronic pain, repetitive injuries, surgery, and auto accidents.
Over the years I've gained insight and understanding towards healing, and a respect for one's own healing process. I've developed through personal and practical experience; by deepening my intuition and refining my skills, a confidence in the medicine I practice and my abilities.
My focus is on harmonization, and to respond to and support the integral aspects of a person's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
It is important to me that patients feel comfortable and cared for. Most importantly, my commitment is that they feel a positive response to treatment and leave feeling better than when they entered.
I prefer and primarily apply the gentle techniques of Japanese acupuncture, though at times may use Chinese. Along with acupuncture I may combine bodywork modalities and medical Qi-Gong, and often use some form of subtle energetic therapies. This varies with preference and consideration according to one's needs. I also offer herbal formulas and nutritional supplements.
