"Drop a pebble into a pond and you see ripples. The effects of acupuncture are just as immediately felt. The medicine I offer is 'rooted in the Spirit': the emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects are always taken into consideration in understanding and treating a disease. Complex and difficult conditions become treatable when we understand that they are not rigid entities, but stages of transformation. Whether the problem is migraines, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, low back pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, addiction, low energy, infertility, hair loss, even immune and degenerative disorders, understanding the disease process points the way to cure."

I make every effort to feed and deepen my own spiritual practice so that I might serve you better. I am honored to support you in your journey to wellness!"
