I am a licensed acupuncturist and certified massage therapist. I combine both Eastern and Western philosophies to treat the modern Westerner’s ailments.
Using Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM, each session will include diagnosis and treatment. Diagnosis is made after careful interview and observation of tongue and pulse. Treatments may include acupuncture, massage, moxibustion, cupping, nutritional counseling and herbal medicine. Treatments are found to be enjoyable and relaxing. Traditional Chinese Medicine is aimed at balancing the organ systems of the body as well as expelling pathogens and nourishing deficiencies of the body when needed. In doing this, it can be used to treat many diseases, symptoms, and conditions, as well as be used in prevention and maintenance.
Acupuncture has been practiced for over 2000 years. Today the World Health Organization, (WHO), maintains a list of conditions for which acupuncture has proven to be an effective treatment.
