My Approach

My practice is driven by my interest in holistic health. I believe that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) provides the tools and perspective needed for patients to engage with every aspect of their lives to achieve optimal health.

Treatment Plans

I create gentle treatment plans that are specific to each patient’s individual circumstance: young, elderly, pregnant or individuals with special requirements. It’s important to me to provide creative and sustainable self-care options.

Anxiety & Depression

I feel very grateful to work with patients suffering from stress, anxiety and depression. When we take time together to decompress, reset and focus on healing, it’s incredibly rewarding to see the knotted rope of their energy slowly loosen and uncoil.

I help to identify and treat the root of the issue rather than only addressing the symptoms and this drug free approach can complement the use of antidepressant medications or any other treatment options that you might already be using.

Other Specialties

My other areas of specialty include mental and emotional well-being, women’s health, digestive disorders, pain management and facial rejuvenation. This full body treatment can improve the look of the face by smoothing uneven skin tone, reducing scars and wrinkles, and healing acne.
