Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I practice Japanese style acupuncture, which is both gentle and non-invasive, making it more accessible for all patients. It is also suitable to treat a wide range of health concerns from aches & pains to chronic illnesses.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I take pride in providing each patient with personalized care. This means taking a holistic approach to assessing each patient to ensure that the root cause is addressed. I believe that every treatment and every day is different for the patient and consider all factors to ensure the treatment is appropriate for the patient.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
My focus is on internal medicine and pain related conditions, this can include:
- Endocrine disorders
- Digestive disorders (IBS, chronic constipation, Crohn’s, colitis)
- Gynecological conditions
- Pain (jaw, neck, shoulders, upper/mid/lower back, knees, elbows)
- Sleep disorders
- Common colds or frequent colds
- Headaches and migraines
- Acute allergic symptom relief
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Post surgery support
- Cancer Care/Immune Support
Additionally I practice Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture. Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture not only allows my patients to experience a more natural approach to aging gracefully but it also provides benefits for vision, sense of smell, tension and mental health.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy treating all patients! Going through the journey with each patient to better his or her health is what I get up for everyday.
