Why did you become an acupuncturist?
I became an acupuncturist after being helped by an acupuncturist when Western medicine offered me no effective treatment. I have always been interested in non-invasive approaches to health and wellbeing.

What distinguishes you from other acupuncturists?
My approach to treatment is more Taoist in nature. I user smaller, thinner needles and less of them per treatment, and I focus on the core issues causing suffering. I use what are known as the Secondary vessels which seem to have a deeper influence on the psyche and belief systems.

What do you enjoy most about your work?
The thing that I enjoy most about my work is watching people grow and develop the tools and skills to lead happier and healthier lives.

What is the biggest misconception you hear about acupuncture?
The biggest misconception I hear about acupuncture is that it is just for pain. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a full system that effectively treats most things that cause suffering, be it physical, emotional or spiritual.

How do you stay healthy in your own life?
I stay healthy by striving for balance in my lifestyle. I aim for moderation in dietary choices, exercise, recreation and spiritual growth.
