A Full-Service Oriental Medicine Clinic in Laramie, WY
Welcome! I am committed to helping you reduce or eliminate your dis-ease, pain or stress, and helping you to return to well-being in mind, body and spirit. When we meet you in the clinic room for treatment we will meet in an environment where I believe that in your journey to wellness “you are greater and wiser than you think.”
At Thirdpathway Acupuncture you can receive care in a variety of Oriental Medicine modalities. I offer several types of acupuncture technique, Asian body work, cupping, moxibustion, as well as herbal support and both nutritional and lifestyle coaching.
As an acupuncturist, I am trained in Master Tung, Tan Balance, Korean Four Needle, and NADA techniques. As an Asian body worker I am trained in Qigong, Tuina and Reiki.
I teach Qigong, Taiji and Reiki classes here in Laramie and also offer classes in meditation.
In addition to the services that I offer in Oriental Medicine, I am also a certified professional life coach and offer both local face-to-face and distance (phone or online) coaching services.

Bio
After I graduated from AOMA with the MAcOM degree, I moved to Laramie, Wyoming because (among other reasons) it represents an under-served portion of the country, and I was drawn to the stunning beauty of the area.
In an earlier version of my life I was a university professor for thirty years and hold a doctorate in Geology (another reason why Wyoming was so attractive to me). I held tenure in Geosciences and also a cross-appointment in Kinesiology, where I taught martial arts and coaching martial arts classes. I am a life-long martial artist and hold multiple black belt ranks in traditional Ju Jutsu, Judo, Hapkido and Taekwondo. In my martial arts life, I have experience as a business owner (ran my own school for sixteen years), author (published four coaching books, wrote a monthly column in a national trade magazine for five years), and national level competitor, coach, referee.
Aside from the martial arts books I have written, I am also a published poet, having published four books in the genre and am an award-winning nature photographer...which is yet another of the reasons I was drawn to Wyoming after graduating from AOMA.
