Holistic Health and Healing Starts Here!

My goal is to help you achieve optimum health and wellness, affordably. Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world. Acupuncture and TCM are used to prevent and treat disease, relieve pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, increase fertility, and improve overall health and wellness. If your particular health issue does not require emergency intervention, chances are, we can help you heal. And, teach you how to maintain health and wellness.

What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

TCM is the indigenous holistic Chinese medical tradition of which acupuncture is a part. TCM includes...

  • Health improving exercise and energy cultivation in the form of Tai Chi and Qi Gong
  • Eastern nutrition principles and practices that improve and maintain health and healing
  • Mindfulness techniques such as meditation and some forms of martial arts (including Tai Chi and Qi Gong) to learn and maintain presence and balance
  • Massage and adjunct body therapies such as Tui Na, acupressure, cupping and gua sha
  • Herbal therapy in the form of HIT medicine that includes liniments and plasters/patches for minor and overuse injuries and Herbal Formulas for acute and chronic health complaints
  • Acupuncture to activate our nervous system to promote health and healing for specific health complaints and to maintain health and wellness
  • Holistic Health Education and Coaching for advice on how to use any and all of the above as most, but not all, TCM practitioners are trained and licensed in all of the above

TCM recognizes that we are a part of the natural world and that the natural world is reflected in us. 

Acupuncture and TCM are safe, effective, chemical-free ways to
promote and enhance your body's self-healing abilities.

Modern research has shown that acupuncture is a safe, effective, chemical-free way to promote the body's remarkable self-healing abilities. An acupuncture treatment involves the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at specific points on the body. Most patients find the sensations produced by acupuncture treatment to be deeply relaxing both mentally and physically
