My mission is to provide whole-person  health care for people of all ages.  I have a general practice with additional emphasis on gynecological, fertility, and well-pregnancy care.  My practice includes all the standard facets of an Oriental medical practice:

  • I listen to your story and do a traditional examination using tongue and pulse diagnosis.
  • Treatments may include acupuncture, moxibustion, dietary and lifestyle recommendations or herbal therapy.
  • I may use additional diagnostic methods to detect imbalances of structure and energy flow.  These include the palpation of movement and blockage in the abdomen, back, spinal column, meridians, and energetic fields.
  • I synthesize my findings with an anatomical and physiological perspective.  A broader perspective provides a more complete picture of your health and health care options.  This helps me to be more effective, and to know when and where to refer you if I cannot help you with Oriental Medicine.

I have been licensed to practice acupuncture by the State of Washington since July of 1991, and the state of Vermont since January of 1996. I completed a 3-year acupuncture program at the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Seattle, Washington. Prior to that, I completed my doctoral training in Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of Vermont College of Medicine.
