My goal in practicing this medicine is to help you achieve optimum health and wellness. Working with the medicine, I have seen the impressive results that acupuncture and Chinese medicine can acheive. I am grateful to be able to share the benefit of my training with you. My background includes not only in acupuncture, but in a wide array of East Asian therapeutic modalities. I attended Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR. I am licensed in Oregon and board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
I have always had a love and fascination with the natural world. I spent most of my childhood growing up in Hawaii, which helped me internalize a deep respect and love for the natural world.
When I talk about East Asian Medicine, I can't help but to tie it back to my love for the natural world. East Asian medicine has roots in the Taoist tradition which is a philosophy that explains the phenomenons of our physiology and inseparable from the natural world around us. I feel I have found a medicine that speaks to me!
Your health care is of the utmost importance to me. I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can benefit you. Together we can work toward achieving your health and wellness goals.
I feel fortunate to be practicing this medicine at an exciting time. We have textbooks that are over 2000 years old, and the modalities I practice which have been proven effective through the millennia are now being proven further by modern scientific methods! I feel I practice from a healthy balance coming from the esoteric roots and collecting enticing scientific evidence!
I am also a founding partner of a fantastic collaborative of independent providers. We call ourselves Living Well Community Health. I'm excited to be able to provide my patients a community of health support that would be beyond what I could provide alone.
