Why did you become an acupuncturist?
I knew I had the ability to bring a treatment strategy that did not involve drastic surgeries or harmful chemical therapies. Ultimately, I want to encourage the whole human being to heal.

What distinguishes you from other acupuncturists?
Aside from being Haitian-American, I have the ability to convert the concepts of acupuncture to a degree where it can be felt. I believe that both the patient and I are completely involved in the specific healing process and we contribute to our mutual growth as whole beings.

What do you enjoy most about your work?
The change the patient feels when pain is relieved by a point on the body that is on the opposite side of where the pain is. I like to see a difficult presentation like muscular dystonia show improvement because it also gives the family hope in some form of recovery.

What is the biggest misconception you hear about acupuncture?
Acupuncture is only useful because it relieves stress. I will try and reconfigure this misconception by saying that stress is one of the key factors in many physical, emotional, and psychological disorders commonly seen in Western medicine as well as in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

How do you stay healthy in your own life?
I believe the health of the stomach is of primary concern when considering my own health. I try to follow a macrobiotic diet because it contributes to and enriches my vegetarian lifestyle. I also focus on traditional Chinese herbs which have resolved a six-year stretch of sciatica and chronic low back pain. I am keeping my eye on as many positive aspects of my life as possible while finding this likeness in others, if possible.
