Here at Healing with Needles we are professionally trained, licensed, certified, and ready to help you manage and transform your well being. With Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine we strive to prevent, educate, and heal individuals in the community from the inside out naturally. We believe in focusing on each individual holistically and providing a place of relaxation and tranquility.
You will find that each treatment with me is sensitive, respectful, thoughtful and thoroughly directed. I look beyond the symptoms into the root cause of the problem. I take time to check-in with my patients to ensure they are progressing with their healthcare goals. My treatment style includes life coaching as I know healthy daily choices are the key to continued wellness. I encourage patients to evaluate areas of their lives that may be out of balance and require attention such as nutrition, exercise, sleep patterns and emotional health.
I am constantly sharpening my skills through mentoring, continued education and inquiry. I am excited to educate and share the benefits and practicality of Chinese medicine.
