After working in western medicine as an LPN for 10 years, I was looking to diversify my treatment approach. Having found relief from various physical and psychosocial symptoms through Traditional Chinese Medicine myself, I decided to pursue Acupuncture.
I spent the early years in my nursing career working in a hospice facility. It was here that I witnessed firsthand what happens when pathologies are caught at a later stage and treated with only pharmaceuticals. The TCM diagnostic approach allows us to see deficiencies and imbalances before they progress to disease. This is why I so strongly believes in the preventative vs. curative approach to Eastern medicine, as well as treating the ‘root’ before the ‘branch’.
Since receiving my acupuncture diploma in 2019, I have completed additional training in facial rejuvenation cosmetic acupuncture, and Acusculpting certification for boosting whole body collagen production and metabolism.
We have a lot to learn from our bodies if we just take the time and care to listen. My goal as an Acupuncturist is to enable my patients to hear what their body is whispering so that it never has to scream.
