Hello! I love my work as a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, certified Shiatsu massage therapist, yoga teacher, and all-around lover of life in the field of health and nutrition.
If chronic stress, anxiety, headaches, high blood pressure, or insomnia are one or more your personal battles and you wear this tension in your shoulders, your back, your hips (and anywhere in between!), then the services that I offer might very well be your answer!
Acupuncture is based on a comprehensive system of medicine known as traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and has been in practice for thousands of years. Acupuncture treats health conditions by stimulating “acu-points” found at specific locations on the surface of the body. I am happy to provide acupuncture for those seeking optimal health. Hundreds of clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it successfully treats conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain, and others) to nausea, migraine headache, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility.
The art of Shiatsu is a highly specialized technique that effectively calms the overactive nervous system through a variety of passive stretches, rocking and massage methods. The results are an improvement to blood circulation, alleviated stress, enhanced sleep quality, greater energy, and relief from overall body stiffness. My work is deep, focused, and applied to the full body. The benefits for those who work with me regularly show in their return to a more natural, peaceful and vibrant state of well being. I, too, have reaped the benefits from my own experience in receiving Shiatsu therapy, and I welcome you to give it a try!
As a former professional ballet dancer, I use my expertise in anatomical awareness to help each client develop their personalized short and long-term goals by working toward greater freedom of movement, improved postural alignment, nutritional counseling, and positive changes in lifestyle and self care.
The passion and skills that I have in this line of work shines through each and every session as we work together to heal mind, body and spirit. Whether you are looking to maintain your health or to overcome deeper challenges, I look forward to being your partner in achieving your health goals!
