As a child I grew up with medicinal and culinary herbs. When my sister and I had cramps, my mom would brew a tea from Borage and Valerian with dry lemon. My uncle had his own medicinal herb garden and was a medicine man in his own town with expertise in pulse taking. Both my father and grandfather were prescribing herbal medicine for their patients. That is how I inherited my last name, which means healer. “I believe through the use of Acupuncture, herbal medicine, meditation & a balanced diet, people can regain the healing power of their body & transform themselves to ideal well being”.

As a doctor of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, I use holistic approach in my practice. Each patient will be treated individually based on her/his needs just like a flower in my garden. In addition to Acupuncture, herbal medicine and dietary guideline will be recommended to enhance your treatment. Each individual will be evaluated as a whole person not as a disease. Root problem of imbalances will be addressed & you will be empowered to take control to change for healthier life and longevity.

Other techniques such as suction cups, moxibustion, scrapping or gua sha, electro acupuncture and acupressure may be applied to enhance your treatment.
