Still, the journey continues............

Although I have completed my D.A.C.M., professional doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine, an option  previously unavailable in the U.S., Chinese medicine is lifelong study!

Current training includes herbal alternatives to pharmaceuticals, dermatology, advanced diagnosis and advanced techniques......

A few more steps taken along the healing pathway........

As one of my Chinese medicine Masters explained, 

"Chinese medicine, like Chinese language, both lifelong study."

Wishing you happiness, health and healing with every breath, with every step.......

What Is Acupuncture?

The insertion of very thin needles at specific points on the body to maintain wellness, help your body heal itself, moderate and alleviate pain, and balance body mind and spirit to provide greater quality of life!

How small are the needles?

Acupuncture needles are very small and thin. 

  • They are 1/20th the size of a hypodermic needle. 
  • In fact, acupuncture needles fit inside of the hypodermic needles.

Does it hurt?
Most people are very surprised they do not feel pain during acupuncture. 

  • Most people fall asleep during acupuncture.
    They say it's the most relaxed they feel.
  • Acupuncture might produce a sense of heaviness, tingling, or a tickle sensation. 
    • If there is any discomfort, the acupuncturist can adjust the needle for your body's comfort or remove the needle completely.
