SOMATIC THERAPIES FOR HEALTH, HEALING AND LONGEVITY
Initial consults (1 1/2 hours) involve thorough intake and evaluation. We review relevant medical history and utilize traditional pulse, tongue and abdominal examination. You can submit medical test results and establish communication with other health care providers, to integrate within your overall wellness strategy and medical care.
We can also take the time to dialogue with you about the nature of the health concern, so that you achieve a comprehensive picture based in traditional medicine. It can be very helpful to not only benefit from the experience of acupuncture, but also have a clear sense of what you might expect for acute and longterm care.
According to the nature of the concern, different methods of acupuncture and adjunct therapeutic modalities are employed. As an acupuncturist, I am versatile and work skillfully, without invasive needling methods.
My practice has been known for its full spectrum care. My background and expertise includes just about every traditional, manual and external therapy under the sun. (Tuina, Shiatsu, Craniosacral, Visceral Manipulation, Marma, etc.)

My first years of clinical care focused heavily on pediatric patients, fertility optimization and overall women's health. Many happy families can attest to our best efforts, care and positive results.
Experience with post-operative inpatient populations, and those specifically dealing with pain and movement impairment, kept me tethered to the body. With over twenty years teaching manual and movement therapy - including yoga and meditation - my passion for somatics remains.
Anxiety, depression and trauma are so common nowadays, and I am dedicated to working with you and know firsthand the profound gift Asian medicine and mindbody healing can offer.
