As an acupuncturist and integrative health practitioner for over 25 years, I use both Eastern and Western modalities in my practice. I'm a biochemist-turned-acupuncturist and I love blending the best of both approaches.
In my clinical practice I combine Japanese meridian-style acupuncture with Trigger Point Release and Classical Chinese Acupuncture. I'm also an Advanced Myofascial Release Practitioner, trained by John F. Barnes, PT.
When I first discovered acupuncture, I received treatments that helped me overcome a severe and chronic case of sinusitis and bronchitis that was resisting all medical treatments. That experience was so remarkable that it began to turn my skeptical scientific mind in the direction of studying acupuncture. As I began my studies, I continued working in molecular biology research at the University of California, Santa Cruz, studying genes in fruit flies that might eventually give us clues to controlling cancer. My curricular studies were through Five Branches Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Santa Cruz and San Francisco College of Acupuncture, and in 1991 I completed a state-approved clinical apprenticeship with Robert Zeiger, L.Ac., OMD, leading to licensure in Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine.
In 2002 I relocated to New York City and studied at Tri-State College of Acupuncture, delving deeper into Acupuncture Physical Medicine and Trigger Point Release with by Dr. Mark Seem, and with Kiiko Matsumoto in her unique style of Japanese acupuncture. Connect with me on DaoCloud.
