Acupuncture for the whole family.
Where treatments are gentle enough for babies and effective enough for athletes.
Acupuncture is an ancient and rich medicine, which can treat just about anything under the sun.
I am a California Board licensed acupuncturist, herbalist and a nationally certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine with over ten years in private practice, specializing in treating pain and injury. I provide Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to treat a wide range of health concerns for women, men and children. As a dual acupuncturist and herbalist I have extensive training in the world’s most sophisticated medical herbal system. I bring this knowledge to my treatments, offering herbal consultations and nutritional guidance to increase the efficacy and positive outcome for my patients. My patients range from babies and children to professional athletes and great-grandparents. As an acupuncturist and primary care provider, I utilize the exceptional tools of Chinese medicine to provide effective and life changing treatments to my patients.
We will work together to create individualized treatment plans.
"I see acupuncture as an art form, a practice of restoring harmony and well being in the body."
A California native, I first came to Santa Cruz at the age of 9 and was delighted to find “my people”! I fell in love with the ocean and the creative, kind community of Santa Cruz and it has been my home ever since.
I became curious about acupuncture and Chinese Medicine as a young teen when I first experienced its healing effects. I chose to pursue the path of Chinese medicine and acupuncture because I knew it was an ancient and profound medicine that would never grow old, but always have more to offer. My passion for it continues to this day.
