“Joy is the Birthright of every individual.”   -Sathya Sai Baba
 It is the  goal of  my practice  in every treatment to be present and listen to each person and work together to create a healthier, happier life. The philosophy of Chinese Medicine is very simple. Health is about balance and disease is imbalance. Through acupuncture, herbs, nutrition and Qigong, we can bring balance back  into our body and return to radiant health and sometimes even prevent disease.


Acupuncture is often  most successful when used as preventative medicine to avoid imbalance and disease.
