Mind Body Medicine
My Purpose is to help people feel good, get out of pain, and enjoy life.

Being in practice for over 21 years and seeing a wide variety of people and health problems I have had to become a specialist in treating pain related and hormone related problems.

I spend one-on-one time talking with patients about their problems and health history, to best create a treatment plan. This treatment plan will usually be multi-faceted, and may include acupuncture, trigger point therapy, neural therapy, Prolotherapy, Oriental massage, herbal medicine, nutritional counseling, blood lab report analysis, B12 injections.

We treat all kind of pain related problems, especially sciatic pain, low back and hip pain, frozen shoulder and rotator cuff problems, neck pain, headaches, knee pain, and arthritis. I also treat female reproductive problem, digestion problems, insomnia, general stress.

A consultation is a short session at no charge to discuss your health problem. It is usually done over the phone by a pre-arranged time. It can help us determine if you are a candidate for acupuncture, prolotherapy, Oriental medicine or other therapies. It will help you to find out about what I do and help you make a decision about making an appointment for treatment.

Bio
I have been practicing Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine for over 21 years, and in the Melbourne, Florida area since 1998. While my office is in Indialantic, I am pleased to have patients from all of Brevard County.

I enjoy combining my knowledge of the ancient arts of Acupuncture, Chinese and Western Herbology, and Natural Foods with the technologically advanced low-level-light laser, trigger point therapy, modern lab testing, and Prolotherapy.

My interest in Chinese Medicine really began with a college nutrition class in the early 1970's. I found my Human Nutrition class to be fascinating and went on to study more alternative minded nutritionists such as Adele Davis, Gary Null and others. What I most resonated with was the philosophy of Macrobiotics, a Japanese natural diet and lifestyle centered around whole foods, yoga, shiatsu massage and other activities promoting good health. Eventually I moved to Boston to further study Macrobiotics. Much of what we were studying was the principles of Chinese Medicine, with an emphasis on diet, nutrition, and natural foods cooking. I began a 10 year career of off-and-on cooking and management at natural food restaurants.

The type of medicine I now practice can better be described as Functional Medicine. Functional Medicine is one of the names given to a new model of medicine which is a blending of alternative/holistic and Western medicine. Basic principles of Oriental Medicine are the cornerstone of Functional Medicine: that the body is an amazing creation with the ability to heal and to stay healthy, and that medicine is to be used to assist the body to return to a state of balance/homeostasis, or good function.

It also blends the ancient methods of herbal formulas with cutting-edge nutritional substances both of which enhance the functioning of the human systems, rather than over-power our systems.

I started my career in Oriental medicine rather late in life, going back to school at the age of 41. However, I didn't feel old, in part from my earlier studies and practice of health. I consider myself to be blessed to be able to have a career that is also my passion, as I would have continued to study Natural health for my own interest, and also to have the joy of helping people return to a state of health and function.
Education/Training
I graduated in 1996 from the School of Complementary Medicine, in Orlando, with degrees in Chinese Herbology and Acupuncture. I continue to maintain my status as a Diplomate in Acupuncture with the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), the only certifying organization in the US for licensed acupuncturists.

Post graduate studies in acupuncture injection therapy, prolotherapy, homeopathy, functional medicine, facial acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, and many other specialties over the course of 21 years.
