My treatment philosophy includes a deeply held belief that the spiritual and emotional aspects of pain or illness are equally as important as the physical aspects, and that the rhythms of the natural world provide the basis for our functioning as human beings. I find acupuncture and Oriental Medicine to be very empowering to the patients I work with, and always look forward to helping patients reframe their health concerns within the paradigm of these time-tested healing practices.
