Midlife Is About Changes in Your Body that Can Get in The
Way of the Life You Want -- It Doesn’T Have to Be that Way!
When you’re ready to admit that your body is changing and acknowledge that sometimes it gets in the way of your work life, your family life, or your enjoyment of life… That’s when it’s time to work with me.

The primary focus of my acupuncture and wellness coaching practice is helping people over 40 get well, feel well and stay well so that they can perform optimally in all areas of their lives. I partner with my clients to help them create the health and life results they want.

My typical client is a man or woman who is over 40. He or she is noticing that living the way they’ve always lived life at midlife is no longer yielding the same results:

They can’t eat the way they used to without gaining weight.
They don’t sleep the way they used to, or else they can’t get away with sleeping the way they used to.
They notice new aches and pains.
They notice other new “features”: headaches, brain fog, low libido, night sweats, fatigue, low energy, irritability and more…
Sometimes their annual checkup yields new surprises: hypertension, type II diabetes, high cholesterol or other chronic issues.

Mostly they are feeling the effects of normal midlife hormone changes going on in their bodies and they know that something needs to change.

I help men and women at midlife to create their own healthy “lifestyle formula”. I use a variety of tools, including modern laboratory techniques (saliva, urine, and stool testing), detailed questionnaires, a thorough medical history and examination.

Once we know what the underlying causes and issues are I’ll do acupuncture treatments and bodywork to address them. I’ll also use nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, supplements, stress management, detoxification and lifestyle changes to help you create a “lifestyle formula” that works best for you. Deep and lasting healing are only possible when the root causes of illness are addressed. Many chronic illnesses can be prevented and even reversed.

There are many simple things you can do without surgery or pharmaceutical drugs to reverse the effects of stress and aging, most of them have to do with lifestyle choices. Let's talk about what results you are looking for.
