I have an amazing job. Every day, people come to my office in physical and emotional distress. They may have been living with pain for years—or their whole lives. They may be struggling with depression. Or perhaps they just can’t seem to get pregnant. And every day, I have the opportunity to improve the quality of someone’s life with acupuncture. I get to see people who have battled disease for years brought back to optimal health, using this powerfully healing tool.
I also recognize that acupuncture is one tool among many. Because there are so many great tools out there, I take an integrated approach to health, and have been very influenced by several mentors who are doctors and surgeons. Due to my knowledge of western medicine, it has become natural for me to network with doctors around the East Bay. This has been a great way for me to see patients who have never tried acupuncture, and may even be skeptical, but are willing to try it on a doctor’s referral. If you are new to acupuncture, I’d like to assure you that it is a comfortable, virtually pain-free experience. You may actually enjoy the sensation—and I know you’ll appreciate how focused, relaxed, and revitalized it makes you feel!
I have successfully treated hundreds of people for a wide variety of ailments. I know how to design a treatment plan specific to your needs. And I look forward to doing just that for you!
