THE MODERN MEDICINE WOMAN
DOCTOR OF EAST ASIAN MEDICINE
For thousands of years, Chinese Medicine has looked at the external environment and how it affects the internal environment of the body. When the body is out of balance, it sends signals to communicate messages of discomfort. I am passionate about treating the whole person and the root cause of disease, bringing people to their optimal health through treatment and lifestyle counseling. My modalities include: Acupuncture, Herbs, Fire Cupping, Counseling, Gua Sha, Deep Tissue Massage, and Lymphatic Drainage techniques to facilitate movement of lymph and blood circulation to restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit.
"Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity."
Acupuncture is a holistic treatment method based on a 2,500 year old theory that our external environment can affect our internal environment. Sterile, one-time-use needles are inserted into energetic points to communicate along nerve pathways and send signals to activate the body's ability to heal itself. Each treatment is custom to the patient's condition the day of the treatment.
Cupping is a vaso-pnematic therapy that uses glass cups to suction to the skin, breaking apart adhesions stuck in muscles and fascia causing pain. Cupping stimulates the muscles to release toxins and old blood while enhancing the body's ability to create new, fresh blood for detoxification and healing.
