Integrative Acupuncture Treatments, No Hidden Fees
As a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine I am trained in many different types of traditional therapies. I specialize in integrative treatments and am the only practitioner in Asheville to offer such a wide variety of complimentary therapies at no extra charge. Acupuncture is the fundamental therapy upon which all of my treatments are built but my toolbox also includes herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese medical massage), zhi ya (acupressure), ba guan (cupping), gua sha (massage with jade and horn tools), topical oils and patches for pain, and 5 element nutrition, and I mix-and-match them according to your condition.

Private One-on-One Acupuncture Sessions, Focused Time
My mission is to put the care back in healthcare. One way I do this is by offering private sessions vs. treating multiple patients in the same room. This approach allows full access to all of the acupuncture points on both sides of the body and provides privacy for disrobing and complimentary therapies like cupping. It also gives you space for deeper rest and relaxation, something I believe is absolutely essential for healing, and allows me to dedicate plenty of focused time to each individual for case history, examination, and treatment.

A Holistic Approach to Health and Healing
In my practice, over 85% of my patients see significant relief of their symptoms, typically without side effects. The key to the success of this system is in its holistic approach which looks at your health as a whole, as one interconnected and unified system. The goal is to create targeted, individualized treatments that address multiple systems simultaneously instead of focusing on single, isolated symptoms. This gives symptomatic relief while at the same time addressing deeper underlying imbalances, improving your overall level of health so that symptoms are less likely to re-occur. Whether you are seeking something more natural, have exhausted mainstream medical options, or are looking for treatments to complement other types of therapies, acupuncture and Chinese medicine may be just what you are looking for.

Pain of All Types
I commonly treat many different types of pain including tension headaches, migraines, TMJ syndrome, trigeminal neuralgia, strains, sprains, plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, menstrual pain, Fibromyalgia Syndrome, sciatica, abdominal pain, arthritis, sports injuries, carpal tunnel, post-operative pain, nerve pain, whiplash, and pain of the lower back, neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, hips, and ankles. Treating pain is about a third of my practice and responds very well to acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
