    One of the things which drew me to Chinese Medicine was its emphasis on treating the whole person rather than just the symptom. Our history, lifestyle, environment and diet all play important parts in creating illness and imbalance in our bodies and offer important clues for healing.

    I believe that my work with patients is a partnership. The work I do with the needles and herbs is only part of the healing process. Patient education and involvement are also important elements.

    My 20+ years of working with a wide variety of patients, of helping people to heal themselves, and of witnessing remarkable recoveries to health and well-being, have increasingly convinced me of the power of this ancient medicine. Does Acupuncture really work? I can say, without hesitation, “Yes it does!”

    I studied Chinese Medicine at the San Francisco College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and was licensed by the California State Board of Medical Quality Assurance in 1987.
