Practical medicine for a practical world
Chinese Medicine is poetic and not widely understood. It can be intimidating and confusing for the first time patient. For this reason, I combine the common language of human experience with my knowledge of Chinese medicine, and a bio-medical education of physiology and bio-mechanics to make treatment a more user friendly comprehensive holistic care that patients can relate to.
As a practitioner, I utilize a combination of techniques and modalities to best serve my patients. I believe patient education and a straightforward approach to health lead to the best treatment results. Rather than being a passive bystander in their health care, I believe my patients have a more effective experience by fully understanding and participating in the healing process. Through open dialogue and communication, I encourage patients to take charge of their own care long after I am needed.
Understanding the physical, emotional and environmental demands on my patients, allows me to tailor individual treatments that best suit them and their lifestyle. A person is the sum of all of their parts, therefore we will work together, as a team, to help you care for your body and live at your optimal potential.
