The Clinic & My Philosophy

In my clinic I believe in prevention and balance through the modalities of Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Massage, Sound Therapy and Listening. “Complimentary Medicine” is a term I am passionate about. Presenting different healing options and techniques to patients, whether it is Eastern or Western based medicine. I think there is room for many different types of medicine, ideas and practices, after all the human body is multifaceted, having layers of Mind, Body, and Spirit.  In my practice I feel strongly about educating my patients on the different ways of healing and letting them choose the best option or options for themselves.

Every patients needs are unique and it is important to me that I work with them in exploring choices in determining what is the best way to proceed with a treatment plan and regaining optimal health.

 

After finishing my practicum of Traditional Chinese Medical Doctor in Beijing China, at a Western Medicine-Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) hospital has transformed my idea of "Alternative Medicine". I embrace a positive and ideological approach to "Complimentary Medicine". Seeing various illnesses being treated very effectively using different modalities ranging from TCM, to modern Chinese medicine and western medicine. TCM is a very broad spectrum medicine. Various approaches and techniques include moxabustion, acupuncture, massage, cupping, guasha, chiropractic adjustments, herbal formulas, diet therapy and the support of emotional wellness.
