I am an Acupuncture Physician, an investigator of the curious cases that find their way in my door. I am also Primal Health Coach who loves to guide you to your best possible state of health. I assist patients in developing and maintaining their health using various modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Natural approaches within TCM are useful in addressing chronic and acute pain. TCM offers natural aid in coping with health issues such as: migraines, depression, gynecological issues, and ability to cope with stress. TCM and health coaching integrate well with primary care for establishing and maintaining health goals, and shoring up gaps in care in our current medical model. I help put you back in charge of your health and attain lasting results.
I provide both acupuncture and other non-needle therapies: Acupressure, Cupping, Herbal Therapy, Moxibustion, and Primal Health Coaching services. After we meet for a consult and go over your health history, I create a treatment plan specifically tailored for your needs. Your treatment plan will let you know how often you should come for treatment and what things you may be able to do on your own to improve how you feel.
I trained at Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine in Ft. Lauderdale, and The Academy for Five Element Acupuncture now located in Gainesville, FL. They are two very different approaches to acupuncture, which are both equally valid and useful in clinic. Each lens provides a fresh treatment perspective and allows flexibility in creating a treatment plan that works specifically for you. While attending Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine I earned the Intern of the Year award upon graduation in 2008 for stellar clinical skills.
I continue to receive training and CEUs related to herbology, tongue diagnosis, acupuncture, and TCM food therapy. In the journey to help patients take ownership of their health, I became interested in the Primal Health Coach Institute. I decided to embark on the course and became a certified Primal Health Coach in 2017. I often use health coaching strategies in conjunction with acupuncture and herbs for patients with Type 2 diabetes, chronic pain and inflammation, auto-immune conditions, and those desiring permanent weight loss solutions. I seek to help put you back in charge of your health and graduate you from clinic.
