What inspired me to become a wellness professional?
I straddled two worlds for much of my early life. My parents were both very scientific, and both also believed there was 'more out there'. They encouraged me to investigate the 'more' whilst also guiding me towards traditional professions (Dad wanted me to be an engineer, Mom thought lawyering would look good on me – I went with computers even though 'girls' didn't go into computers in those days).

How my clients describe their first visit?
We set all initial visits at 2-hours. Sometimes they go longer.
The time allows me to get to know the person who’s just come into my office.
We cover the reason you’ve come in, as well as your health history and what my colleagues – Complementary and Western – have diagnosed you with, done for your health and/or left on the table and not attended to.
We will talk about your goals, your expectations and your timeline.
And then you get to relax on the table for your first acupuncture treatment with me.
What I say to someone who has never tried
Yes, it really is painless. Those little needles (I like to call them pins) are nothing like the needles your doctor uses to give you a shot. They’re solid, the thickness of a human hair and they just sneak into the acupoints with no pain.
There are different styles of acupuncture. I prefer the Japanese style, which is gentler. My patients still receive the benefits of the acupuncture treatment but with thinner needles and no ‘moving’ the needle once it’s in the body.
You’re going to have fun!
