Healing Description

Dynamic, Vibrant, Intuitive, Creative, Grounded, Thorough.

My healing style is a deep integration of myriad approaches to medicine. I utilize pulse and tongue diagnosis to create an effective treatment plan using primarily acupuncture needles, and integrate other modalities curated to the person’s presentation at that particular moment in time. Following the newly laid organic path and guidance by my previous experience, I seek to facilitate the emergence of a state of optimal wellbeing in every person I have the honor of working with.
