Why did you become an acupuncturist?
I become aware of the need for alternative and integrative clinicians that healed patients. I saw the brilliance and effectiveness of the Chinese medical system.
What distinguishes you from other acupuncturists?
I’ve done an incredible amount of internal healing and can facilitate this in others. I am adept at discerning where others hold their blocks and can gently move this to allow change in clients.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
I am deeply gratified at helping clients change. Watching the moment when they are transformed and find what they thought missing.
What is the biggest misconception you hear about acupuncture?
Acupuncture is not a quick fix. It can have dramatic results but it still entails a commitment to a process of change. The body can heal itself. If it’s not doing that, some adjustments need to be made.
How do you stay healthy in your own life?
I meditate, do qigong and eat well. I stay connected to my community and know when I need to recharge with nature and spiritual work.
