Why did you become an acupuncturist?
During university, I suffered from a painful sports injury. The condition, which had lingered on for months, was finally resolved within three treatments when I visited an acupuncturist. My fate was sealed then and there, as I resolved to learn this fantastic healing art to help others heal as well.
What distinguishes you from other acupuncturists?
Having been in practice since 2003, I know that people expect quality care with lasting results. I strive to meet these expectations with each person who comes into my care. I love treating families and have a particular interest in treating women’s health and pediatric health concerns.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
I enjoy working in partnership with my patients to find real solutions to what ails them. I love it when patients realize that they really can feel that much better on a daily basis!
What is the biggest misconception you hear about acupuncture?
People often think acupuncture can only be used to treat pain, and are surprised that it can be used to treat a whole range of conditions. In fact, the reason it can treat so many things is because acupuncture can help your body find balance and reach its utmost potential, and thereby manifest true healing by tapping into the source that has the most ability to help you get better—you!
How do you stay healthy in your own life?
To stay healthy is an ongoing effort! A healthy diet for me involves small portions that are seasonal, local, fresh, and organic whenever possible. I tend to avoid cold water and ice, and drink lots of herbal teas and soups instead! I try to stay active physically by doing daily walks, qigong and yoga, as well as cycling, skiing, and running when time permits. To help me focus and also relax, I do regular meditation and journaling. I try to get at least 7-8 hours of quality sleep. One of the best ways to stay healthy is to focus on the present, breathe, laugh, be around those you love, and do loving things. So I try my best to do all that as often as I can!
