I specialize in helping you through difficult situations where you feel stuck.

Our society places us under constant stress. Our bodies are designed to use stress temporarily to escape danger, but have difficulty processing the constant levels of stress we experience today.

Stress can overwhelm your system, causing symptoms such as pain, trouble with digestion, panic attacks that leave you unable to move forward, or depression that prevents you from even seeing a way. These are warning signs that can lead to chronic, more serious problems if left untreated. Sometimes it even feels like we have become a different person.

Acupuncture can remove blocked energy caused by stress. When your energy is flowing freely, it is easier to see solutions to problems that seemed insurmountable, take that next step, or just feel more comfortable and happy where you are.

When energy is flowing freely, your body can use the energy it needs to heal itself.

Acupuncture is also very effective in helping your body recover from surgery, and in managing chronic conditions so you can continue to lead a meaningful life.

What to expect:

When you begin treatment, I will start by taking a full history, not just of your health, but of who you are and where you are in life.

The first couple treatments will clear energy energy blocks and energy that has become polluted.

After that, treatments will focus on building your energy and shoring up weak spots so that energy continues to flow and won't get blocked again.

Monthly or seasonal tune-ups keep you on track when you feel vulnerable to extra stress.

Call or e-mail me to set up an initial appointment.
Bio
I grew up in the Seattle area, and have lived here all my life.

I've always been interested in who we are as people, how we got to where we are, and what we might become.

This led me to study history and literature in college, and to later pursue a degree in teaching.

I was unsatisfied with teaching because I feel every person has a unique path in life, and it was difficult to meet the needs of all students. I also felt I did not yet have enough life experience to teach.

I began to explore other options and discovered Aikido, a Japanese art of non-violent self defense. This is where I first encountered the concept of life energy, and the profound changes that are possible when you begin to work with it. I began to read more about this energy and discovered that there are systems of healing that use only energy such as qi gong and acupuncture.

When I found acupuncture, I discovered a way to help each person grow into who they were meant to be. Each course of treatment in acupuncture is individually tailored to fit the specific patient where they are at the time they walk through the door.
