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.
Acupuncture is a healing art form that dates back 2,000-5,000 years. It has been used on billions of people, all over the world.
I practice a style of acupuncture based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). I also integrate Japanese style palpation-based practices and protocols into treatments.
As part of traditional Chinese medicine, I also perform Gua Sha. I use a special tool to scrape your skin, producing light scabs. This releases unhealthy bodily matter within sore, tired, stiff or injured muscle areas to stimulate new oxygenated blood flow to the areas, thus promoting metabolic cell repair, regeneration, healing and recovery.
We offer therapeutic massage, including Swedish, Deep Tissue and Sports Massage with a licensed Massage Therapist. Massage therapy is relaxing and enjoyable while also decreasing pain and supporting recovery. Regular massage can decrease stress, improve sleep and support a healthy immune system.
Chinese herbology is the world’s most sophisticated medical herbal system. As a dual acupuncturist and herbalist, I have had extensive training in the identification, categorization and clinical use of the traditional Chinese herbal pharmacopoeia. I bring this knowledge to my treatments, using herbal formulas to increase the efficacy and positive outcome of treatments.
