What inspired me to become a wellness professional?

My journey to becoming an acupuncturist began in the 1980s when I became a patient of a graduate of MUIH. My experiences were so profound on both the physical and emotional levels that I realized this treatment modality is powerful. From that experience, I realized that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine were what I was destined to do. I am very invested in assisting others on their journey to greater well-being.

How my clients describe their first visit?

Patients find that having someone listen to all aspects of who they are and their lives is very empowering. They appreciate having the time to explore the relationship of their concerns with their lifestyle, their emotional situation, and their spiritual wellbeing.

What I say to someone who has never tried Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine?

This medicine is an exploration of you as a whole person, not broken down into parts. We work in partnership to bring you to the fullest sense of wellness in body, mind, and spirit.
