East Meets West

Twenty years experience in Western Medicine as a Registered Nurse in Trauma Intensive Care.

As a Licensed Acupuncturist, my practice consists of a Holistic approach to health maintenance and restoration that treats the Whole person. My background in Western Medicine provides a strong foundation of caregiving. Therefore, I bring knowledge of both Eastern & Western Medicine to my practice.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture Practitioners are educated not only in technical skills, but also in healing and centering methods which harmonize body, mind & spirit. The World Health Organization has endorsed acupuncture for its methods of restoring the body’s balance and promoting health.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Acupuncture is quite safe. Acupuncture Practitioners are trained in strict standards set by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists for clean needle technique. All Acupuncturists must abide by the standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
