…my passion
for oriental medicine lies in its ability to offer effective, non-invasive treatments that relieve many common ailments, as well as those health issues that are complicated and have not responded well to traditional protocols.

Most people know that acupuncture is great for pain management, but it has many other benefits that you may not be aware of. We are so lucky to have a variety of options for our health and well-being and I am thrilled to be able to share my knowledge and experience with you by providing care to you and your whole family- from complimentary consultation to treatment. I love what I do and I look forward to working with you on achieving your wellness goals.
