My personal mission as an acupuncturist and health care practitioner is to help my patients overcome their health condition(s), and provide them with necessary tools and guidance to be able to engage in their own healing process.
I believe in the natural healing process of the body, and that we ultimately have to rely on this process to gain and maintain health. I believe that dis-ease typically takes a long time to manifest, and is the result of a long term energy disturbance within the mind, body and/or spirit. Dis-ease can result from excess stress (emotional and/or physical), poor diet, lack of exercise, genetic disposition, exposure to chemicals or pesticides, excess repetitive motions, or any combination of the above. There are also conditions that result from injury and trauma, and these can be usually be helped as well through Chinese medicine.
I hope that I may be able to help assist you in achieving health, and am available for free phone consultation.
