What I love about Structural Integration is how deeply grounding and settling it is to the nervous system. Through Structural Integration, patients of mine are able to find a calmness from within.
I like to take the time to listen deeply to my patients because that’s the way I gather the information I need to help them live full and vibrant lives.
Through years of study and practice, I have learned that the most profound improvements are made when the body, mind and spirit are in alignment. My mission is to partner with my patients to help facilitate profound healing, change, and transformation in their lives.
One concept that informs my practice of Chinese medicine is that of empowerment. One of my jobs as an acupuncturist is to encourage and assist my patients to be fully participant in their health and well being, which I love.
For as long as I can remember I have felt called to heal people in a hands-on way. I am grateful to the thousands of patients who have trusted me with their health care over the past 18 years. It continues to be a privilege to serve in this way.
The Chinese pictogram/word Rén, combines the character for person with the number two. Two people working together toward a common, life-affirming goal of health. This is a great process to be a part of, and to be able to work with my patients is the greatest gift.
I love that Chinese medicine can fill in the blanks of Western medicine. Often patients come to me having tried “everything”. Finally, they get results with acupuncture and Chinese herbs and then think to use it first for future health concerns. Making a difference for someone who has been struggling to find relief is extremely rewarding.
One of the facets of Chinese medicine that most resonates with me is that it regards the body as its own best healer. I see myself as both a partner and a guide, helping my patients tap into the healing wisdom that’s inside each of us.
My clinical work is geared towards chronic pain, auto immune disorder and stress management, I’m especially interested in tapping into the mind/body connection. My goal is to facilitate healing based on individualized treatment of physical injuries along with emotional stressors.
I love traditional Chinese medicine because it allows me to help my patients correct the true causes behind their ailments instead of simply relieving symptoms. Through individualized treatment plans, I’m able to heal in what I feel is in the most effective and least invasive way possible.
Although I have always loved treating a wide variety of patients, there is no greater honor than to partner with my patients to fulfill their dream of pregnancy and having a baby. Chinese medicine provides me with the tools to help me guide them through this journey and beyond.
