I have been studying natural wellness and health for more than 20 years. My internship was here in Houston at ACAOM and my Externship was in China at two well known TCM hospitals. I am a certified yoga instructor in Ashtanga flow yoga. I use this therapeutically with my patients. I have lived in Houston since 1990 where I received my undergraduate degrees from UH Central and my master's degree from ACAOM. I worked with master level teachers for a number of years before branching into my own practice.
After working in the finance and banking world for 12 years, I felt that I could better apply my caring and healing personality to helping people heal naturally.
They are welcomed into a calm, clean, modern and bright clinic, greeted by friendly staff and then led to one of 6 modern treatment rooms. The visit will last about 1.5 hours and will include a consultation, medical history intake, and review, traditional Chinese exam, and diagnosis with initial recommendations. The treatment itself will last about 40 minutes with 30 minutes of that being a nap time int he zen space with calming music.
Acupuncture works with the natural healing mechanisms of the body to balance organ systems, hormones, active endorphins, serotonin and other feel-good receptors in the brain.
