If you are struggling with health concerns and are looking for safe, all-natural and effective solutions, then you are in the right place…
Acupuncture addresses the root causes and issues of our health problems and treats the individual as a whole.
Acupuncture is gentle and relaxing and provides a natural approach to diagnosing and treating health issues. Its methods encourage the body to promote natural healing and improve the body’s overall function and immune systems.



My goal is to help people feel better and take control of their health again.

I am committed to providing my patients with the highest standard of care based on an attitude of caring, compassion, gentleness, warmth, professionalism, and respect.

Using a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, nutritional therapy, and various stress reduction techniques you can overcome chronic, nagging health problems that cannot be effectively addressed using other means.

By creating a treatment plan that addresses each individual’s needs and includes various modalities of Oriental Medicine, I strive to treat not only the symptom, but also the root of illness, and thus restore the balance upon which holistic health is based. 

Using a combination of safe, natural, and effective therapies, I can assist you in overcoming health concerns that stem from emotional and physical causes. Instead of just suppressing symptoms, my goal is to help you to heal at the core and make genuine, long-lasting changes that will benefit you forever. 

From your first appointment onward, you will never feel rushed through the healthcare process. Education is an essential dimension of healing and I pride myself on being a knowledgeable resource for your questions and concerns. My goal is to create an environment that will allow for deep trust and relaxation, integrity, and the potential for genuine transformation. If you have questions or would like more information, you are welcome to call me for a free 15 minute consultation at my office. 

Because this healthcare system is so effective and gentle, many celebrities including Kate Winslet, Richard Gere, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Moss, Madonna and Sandra Bulloch are at the front of a movement to revolutionize healthcare in our country by introducing natural medicine and energy healing into the mainstream. In fact, Oprah once devoted an entire segment of her show to acupuncture! On this show, Dr. Mehmet Oz stated that energy medicine is the wave of the future and will integrate powerfully into our current healthcare model.
