Manage Your Health. Not Your Symptoms.

have been studying alternative health practices that integrate total health wellness for over twenty-five years. Initially, I sought out non-conventional/alternative medicine and methodologies to heal myself. In the early 80’s, Chronic Fatigue was a mystery to most traditional physicians. I went to several doctors who all ran a multitude of lab tests …and there were no answers for why I was so very fatigued. All my blood work was fine which meant values were within medical parameters. I had no observable physical signs of illness, no identifiable signs of pain, no anemia and no identifiable disease. Conventional physicians simply had no answer as to why I was so tired! And so…I started my journey towards health and a lifetime of learning how to heal.
I have been a licensed acupuncturist in the state of California and Nationally for 20 years. I have a Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Herbology. I also have Diplomat status in Acupuncture and Homeopathy. In conjunction with having a private practice, I have taught Nutrition, Acupuncture Theory and Acupuncture Diagnosis at Samra Acupuncture College, Royal Acupuncture School and Dong Guk Acupuncture University.
My post graduate studies have included multiple courses in Homeopathy, Micro-current (needleless) Acupuncture, Vibrational healing with micro-current and light. I have continued to develop my acupuncture skills with an internationally re-known Japanese acupuncture teacher Kiiko Matsumoto, who developed her own widely recognized style of acupuncture. I have studied with her for 22 years and she has taught me many innovative acupuncture methodologies that treat the root cause of disease and not just the symptoms.
During the last 10 years, I have studied Functional Medicine and related course work detailing methods of determining the underlying causes that block optimal health. Some of my advanced study includes: Functional Endocrinology, Functional Neurology, Brain Chemistry, Advanced Plant Stem Therapy, Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis, German Biological Medicine, Homotoxicology, Advanced Gemmotherapy, Advanced Electronic Acupuncture and Color Light Healing, Matrix Reflex testing (MRT) with Dr. Louisa Williams and Environmental Medicine.
