Bodies are amazing - but I'll be honest with you, they sometimes do weird things when they get out of balance!
There are a ton of acupuncturists here in Portland (as you may have noticed!) so it's important to find the right acupuncturist for you! It's kind of like finding the right hairstylist - don't worry if the first acupuncturist you try isn't the right match, you'll know when you find the one. Here are a few things about me and my treatments to help you decide if you think we might be a good match:
*I love to laugh with my patients - after all, laughter is the best medicine! It releases feel-good hormones which jumpstarts your acupuncture treatments. It's like a two-for-one deal!
*I love helping people through whatever health problems they're currently dealing with - I kind of love my job! But I especially love treating allergies, skin conditions and auto-immune diseases as I know first hand what it's like to deal with them and have some pretty awesome tricks up my sleeve.
*I use a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, and Chinese nutritional advice to help build healthy habits which remind your body how to be healthy again. Everyone gets homework - but don't be scared - this homework helps fill in the time between treatments so that you feel better faster!
*I will never recommend something to you that I haven't tried myself first. I like to make sure that my referrals and recommendations are safe and effective!
*I'm an AcuNerd! I LOVE this medicine, so feel free to ask whatever questions come to mind!
