“I have always perceived the human being as an intricate composition of energetic routes and ‘Health’ as the unobstructed flow of these subtle energies within a biological structure. We are intrinsically regenerative and when properly supported therapeutically, the body’s instinctive wisdom will seek the state of vital, dynamic health.”
I have studied Health all my life. I was a high level professional dance performer and teacher and that understanding of movement was the best foundation. My Mother was someone who was very concerned with feeding her family a healthy diet without any preservatives or additives. She baked bread for her family of 8 every Wednesday as I grew up. Once I had children of my own, I studied the use of medicinal herbs and finally found my way to The Tao, and Chinese Medicine by the time I was 33 and have grown my knowledge over the years that i have been in school or a professional Doctor of Chinese Medicine My Teacher, Jeffrey Yuen, continues to inspire me.
The First Visit is a combination of a complete heath history taking combined with the first treatment. My Check in takes place on the iPad, and the entire first visit takes 90 minutes.
The Treatment is very relaxing and de-stressing. The Music is relaxing. Essential oils are available to help the process of taking all the stress away.
I like to have my first time patients come in with a list of symptoms, a list of supplements and medications, and copies of any recent lab tests that have been taken.
