L.Ac., Dipl.OM MSTCM, FABORM
"What I enjoy most about my work is the look of relief and calm on my patient's faces after an acupuncture treatment. I also love to see the look of delight, the "lightbulb" that switches on when I reframe a patient's chronic health problems through the lens of Chinese medicine. That "aha!" moment when seemingly unrelated symptoms suddenly make sense, and healing becomes possible. I would love to help you get relief and be able to enjoy your life more."
