My practice is about teaching and empowering the patients to heal themselves through Traditional Chinese Medicine. I help my patients to understand how/why their symptoms are manifesting and what changes they can make to help heal themselves. I treat patients ranging in age from one week old to people in their 90's. I specialize in Orthopedics, especially neck, back, hips and legs, also headaches, stress/anxiety, depression and women's issues.

TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE– Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a term used to describe various aspects of medical procedures and health/fitness exercised for centuries in China. The medical procedures make up a comprehensive system of health care with a continuous clinical history of over 3,000 years. Traditionally Chinese physicians used energetic, holistic, and philosophical approach to keep the body’s various systems in a balanced condition. It strives to achieve balance between the body and nature and the two mutually dependant opposing forces of yin and yang. Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biomedical model of Western medicine. TCM utilizes the use of acupuncture, herbs, cupping, and moxibustion to successfully treat and prevent illness.

ACUPUNCTURE – The traditional Chinese theory says illness results from imbalances or blockages in a person’s energy channels. The flow of energy is restored when acupuncture needles stimulate certain points within specific channels. Many Western doctors believe the needles may stimulate the nervous system to release endorphins or other natural occurring chemicals and hormones that affect mood, health and pain perception. The ancient Chinese recognized a vital energy behind all life forms and life processes. They referred to this vital energy as Qi (pronounced chee). Acupuncture is a method of accessing the body’s vital energy by stimulating specific points on specific channels, also referred to as meridians, on the body. These meridians run just beneath the skin like flowing rivers. Acupuncture needles (healing sticks) are extremely thin and flexible. Upon insertion, one may feel a slight sensation of heaviness or tingling at the point the Qi is reached. The sterile, single use disposable needles are generally left in place for 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the diagnosis. Patients sometimes report feeling relaxed or even euphoric after acupuncture treatments.

ELECTROACUPUNCTURE– Electroacupuncture is the use of a small battery operated electrostimulation machine, which is attached to the acupuncture needles. This is used to strongly stimulate the flow of Qi. The frequency and strength of the electric pulse can be varied to achieve the desired effect of each patient.

HERBOLOGY – Herbology is the use of different substances such as bark, leaves, roots, flowers and other substances in the treatment of different illnesses and imbalances of our bodies. Herbs are either taken individually, which is not very common, or several individual herbs are combined into formulas. These herbal formulas may be taken by boiling the herbs into a decoction, taken as a pill or tincture. A tincture is when the essence of the herbs are extracted by soaking in alcohol. Herbs are very specific in the actions and possess different qualities and properties, which can be used to treat specific aspects of an illness. Because of this, herbal fromulas can be specifically designed for the individual needs of each patient.
