Dr. Alexandra Garcia
Chinese medicine is all about nurturing the best and truest version of yourself; I'm honored to be a part of that journey with my patients. It's a deeply moving experience to witness the moments when someone feels empowered to achieve their wellness goals.
Although I love 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.
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.

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.
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.
Dr. Daryl Thuroff
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.
Dr. Jill Blakeway
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 17 years. It continues to be a privilege to serve in this way.
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.
I have been in awe of the body’s intelligence for as long as I can remember and am drawn to the inclusive practices of Chinese Medicine because it invites me to deeply listen to my patients, empathize with their experiences, and facilitate their healing.
I’m attracted to Chinese medicine for its attention to the details of the individual. It is nuanced and precise. It is problem solving in its most creative form – a challenging and very satisfying way to spend each day.
Dr. Noah Rubinstein
The Chinese pictogram Rén combines the character for a person with the number 2, representing two people working towards a common goal of health. What can be more life affirming than the opportunity to work with another person in a hands on way as they heal? I consider it a privilege and I love what I do.
Dr. Patricia Botet
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.
