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 am eager to partner with you to address your conditions and symptoms and offer personal and practical experience to do so. I have successfully worked with people of all ages and many conditions, to improve their function, enhance wellness and eliminate pain. Patients report provided relief and recovery from all types of acute and chronic pain, repetitive injuries, surgery, and auto accidents.
My focus is on harmonization and it's effectiveness. My aim is to respond, address and to support the integral aspects of a person's unique physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. I regard each patient as an individual -a whole being- not just a set of symptoms.
It is important to me that patients feel comfortable and cared for and have a positive response to treatment, from which they leave feeling better than when they entered. What's equally important is to help one to discover their personal gifts of self healing.
I practice both Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture, primarily the style of Japanese acupuncture. Japanese therapies emphasize gentle stimulation and offer a variety of subtle techniques including special uses of moxibustion.
I also offer various modalities of bodywork and massage. Let us work together to find what's right for you.
