an internal imbalance. Using acupuncture, herbs,
and other modalities, I address the root cause
of your symptoms to bring your body back to its

what to expect
Your first visit begins with a thorough consultation. We talk through all your current health concerns, past health history, and perform a chinese medicine diagnostic exam to assess your constitution and all body systems.
Based on our findings, we offer a customized treatment protocol using a combination of the modalities listed above. Your session ends with an overview of a tailor-made treatment plan to empower you with the practical tools to become your own healer.
You leave feeling relaxed and centered - a little more like yourself.
Follow up visits include a re-assessment to determine how you are progressing, and treat holistically according to your current presentation.
What you call your body is a living, breathing extension of billions of years of an incredible life process.
Every cell in your body has an innate bio-intelligence. Just like your embryo didn't need an instruction manual to grow into you, your body knows how to heal itself.
But in this modern world, your innate vitality isn't something you're taught to follow. In fact, often our lifestyles hamper its flow. We're all over-worked, under-cared for, feeling sick, and conventional routes of treatment have left us feeling frustrated or hopeless.
We're here to help you re-align with your innate vitality. We guide you in unravelling the years of cultural conditioning and personal history that stand between you and your vibrancy.
