It can be overwhelming and disheartening when your body is no longer your ally. You spend most of your daily energy managing your body’s needs rather than truly living. On the darker days, it feels like you may never get to LIVE again, may never get to do what you love.
It doesn’t have to be that way. The truth is that you deserve to have a body that works WITH you. You deserve to feel whole so that you can develop your highest caliber of offering to those your serve.
I, too, found acupuncture through a time of imbalance and profound pain. Acupuncture guided me out of that space and into a life of attunement and connection. Let me guide you there as well.
Acupuncture is simple, ancient, and cumulative.
My practice takes gentle steps to make you well.
How We’ll Work Together
- Dive Deep
We’ll begin at our first appointment. We’re going to talk, and we’re going to go deep. I’ll hold the space to understand your story as far back as it seems fitting. We’ll trace the threads of connection that weave your health and wellness history.
- Create a Plan
From there, I’ll create a treatment plan for you. The treatment plan will use a combination of powerful modalities. These include acupuncture, herbal remedies, moxibustion, cupping, and e-stim. I hold your experience with reverence, and will always ask for your feedback.
- Untie the Knots
Over a series of appointments, we’ll untie the knots that have had you stuck. Often, a take-home therapeutic practice is suggested which could involve lifestyle changes. You’ll move from being on autopilot to being fully present, from being in pain to being empowered, and from being exhausted to being deeply vibrant.

How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture has been in continuous use for 3,000 years. It is regenerative, and cyclical in nature. As a therapy, it works by stimulating specific points on the skin with very thin needles. This stimulation encourages the central nervous system to shed pathology and engage its healing mechanisms. Over time this practice gently guides the body back to wholeness.
Chinese Medicine and its many practitioners (especially in the west) have, over time, integrated elements of Western bioscience-based medical perspectives. This marriage is sometimes happy and sometimes strained. While I incorporate current research and an evidence-based approach, I lean on the power of the Acupuncture tradition. This tradition says that each person is unique, and their road to health will be unique as well.
