I love practicing Chinese Medicine because it is simple and it works!  I devoted myself to this medicine in 2006 after having my own profound acupuncture experience. Chinese Medicine can play an integral part in transforming healthcare in the US today.  Looking for a health care answer besides medication? Up for making some lifestyle changes? As an acupuncturist, I will look at the big picture and treat the root of the problem, not just the symptoms.

By studying Chinese Medicine, I was initiated into a 3,000+ year-old medicine that stresses prevention.  A Chinese doctor was judged based on if he was able to keep his village healthy. A healthy village meant a good doctor.  I love the simplicity of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and that you can literally carry the tools you need in your pocket.

After 6 years of practice I started Happy Belly Acupuncture-“whole body health from the center out.”  With this new endeavor I will take my years of experience as an acupuncturist to help people dive deeper into their health, put them in the driver seat and assist them on their journey to a more vibrant self.  I am so excited for this next chapter.  In my studies I have learned that many pathologies start with an imbalance in our gut.  By focusing on this area as well as the rest of the body I will treat:  stress, mental health, digestion, gynecological disorders, PMS, fertility, pre-natal and post-partum health, chronic pain, musculo-skeletal pain, headaches, fatigue and pretty much every other health condition.

In October 2016, I joined the team of practitioners at Luna Chiropractic & Wellness on Thursdays to offer community acupuncture.  I am very excited about this new venture!  The wellness providers of Luna include LMT's, ND's and chiropractors. Luna specializes in treating families, kids, and pre/postpartum mamas.  To schedule or to learn more:  http://www.lunachiropractic.com
