Welcome to my acupuncture practice!
My clients are my constant teachers and I am grateful for how they inspire me to be an Instrument of Nature and a partner with them to support their health and healing process.
My passion for healing began in 1982, when I was twenty-five years old, and was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease.
Finding out I had cancer was a big wake up call. I had to face the fact that I was full of stress and completely disconnected from myself. I knew the key to my healing was to choose to live with every part of my being.
This began a long journey of healing and self discovery. After two months of chemotherapy and four weeks of radiation treatment I was grateful the large tumor in my chest cavity was gone, yet I knew I needed to continue a much deeper level of healing.
In 1984, I heard about Acupuncture. I didn’t know anything about it, but I decided to give it a try. I was amazed at the change I felt at my very first treatment. With the first needle I felt something shift deep inside my being. I realized I was reconnecting to myself in a way I had not felt in years. I was overjoyed to realize I found a healing modality that could help me so completely, at such a deep level of my entire being.
Over the next six months I learned about the Five Elements and began to understand myself in a whole new way. Five Element acupuncture helped me to regain my strength and energy. I felt a growing sense of healing, in my spirit and in my life.
I realized my entire healing journey was about discovering that my life was meant to be about healing. I decided to become a Five Element acupuncturist.
Now, 32 years later, I’ve been honored to help many, many people with their health and wellness needs.
I love sharing the gifts of the Five Elements! They offer a beautiful system of medicine to help you connect with your own natural energy and to activate your inner power to heal. Let’s get started and let acupuncture support your health and well-being!
