As a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I have a truly holistic and customized approach to wellness. I believe that the body yearns to heal itself, and by supplying it with the proper ingredients, we can help it along.
Here's how I can help you build a solid foundation of health thriving in body, mind and spirit:
Acute or Chronic Health Conditions:
If you have a specific challenge or concern, I will act as your "personal health detective" to help you uncover the root cause of your illness. During our initial consultation, I will listen to your story and together we will embark on a path to restore your health. We will examine your diet and lifestyle and design a comprehensive wellness program specifically for you. Acupuncture, herbal remedies, and/or nutritional supplements may be recommended as part of your treatment plan to bring your body into a state of optimum health.
Nutrition and Exercise:
If you don't have a specific issue but would like to feel and look your best, I can help you achieve your goals. There is so much information presented to us every day instructing us how to be healthy that at times it can be overwhelming and confusing. The bottom line is that what is good for one person may not be good for another. Each of us requires a unique strategy to support our individual constitution. Whether you have just begun to pay attention to your health or if you have been working on it for some time and just need some refinement, I can help you discover what is most beneficial for you. I take into consideration your genetics, work, home life, diet, exercise, stress level and sleep patterns and create a plan of action that will help you achieve your maximum vitality and quality of life.
Healthy, Graceful Aging:
When you feed your mind-body what it needs in the form of nutrition, movement, relaxation, purpose and community, it has a way of remaining energetic and youthful. Healthy aging is achievable. In fact, Traditional Chinese Medicine, which is centered on prevention, can be called the true "anti-aging" medicine. Historically, Asian cultures have enjoyed the longest life expectancies and lowest disability rates in the world and we have much to learn from their success. I can help you develop constructive habits adapted from time-tested traditions that will transform and rejuvenate you.
Conception and Pregnancy:
Traditional Chinese medicine has been used for centuries to help couples conceive and remain healthy throughout pregnancy. With acupuncture and herbs, diet and lifestyle modifications, I can prepare you to be in the best possible health to support the growth and development of a child. If you have been trying to conceive without success, I can assist both you and your partner by gently bringing your bodies into balance.
Acupuncture encourages fertility by increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, encouraging optimal egg and sperm quality. In addition, fertility treatments regulate hormones and immune response and calm the nervous system. Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or are undergoing IVF or IUI, I will work with your Western doctor to create a supportive protocol that addresses your individual needs.
Hormones, our master-communicators, influence every aspect of health and well-being. When their communication is harmonious we feel good, but when they are out of sync,
