I was drawn to the study of Chinese medicine largely because it is a nature-based medicine that recognizes people as an integral part of our natural world.
My initial infatuation with the beauty and poetry of the medicine quickly grew into a deep respect for its effectiveness in relieving so many health concerns. After more than twenty years in practice, that respect and fascination grows ever stronger.
I practice in an environment that is comfortable and quiet and begin a first appointment by spending time learning about a person’s health and their goals in coming to see me. I believe self-care is our most essential care, so I pass along whatever information will help the people I work with stay in as vibrant a state of health as possible. I maintain an open mind toward other forms of medicine, am happy to work with other practitioners and have the benefit of a great referral network in the area.
