My mission is to empower you to become more self-reliant in your health care. Only you are with yourself 24-7, so you need to be your own primary care practitioner. Everyone else you work with is part of your team, but you are in charge. I want to give you as many tools as possible so that you can learn to handle more and more of your own health issues yourself. That is why I both teach and treat, and in my clinic I combine treatment with instruction. I ask my clients what they are willing to take on to enhance their self-care, and then we make a plan together that may include herbal remedies, nutrition, Qi Gong, acupressure, and other components.
I also get enormous satisfaction from relieving pain. Nothing quite beats the satisfaction of seeing people feel comfortable in their bodies an hour and a half after entering my office in pain. I love helping people safely reduce their meds, learn how to take care of themselves in a variety of situations, and improve their breathing, digestion, freedom of movement, and ability to handle stress.
