“I pour passion into my work and my research; be it on Medicine, Quantum Physics, or Spirituality; and equally so, if not more, into what I discover. What I’ve come to understand, as I’ve fallen in love with this Universe, is that it has also fallen in love with me. It is when you reach that point that you realize you have something to offer. Join me.”
The success I have found in treating patients developed from my clinical experience and education at New York City's highly accredited, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM), receiving a Master's degree of Science in Acupuncture; as well as continuing to expand my understanding of the medicine through my Acupuncture practice, and my own personal exploration into the depths of disease healing from neurological Lyme disease solely with Eastern Medicine.
Acupuncture works succinctly to both prevent disease and to heal illness. Together we cultivate an internal environment, so attuned to healthful patterns, that your body is no longer hospitable to chronic disease or dysfunction and prepared to protect you from standard biological pathogens.
By redefining and refining what fuels our lives, meaning what foods we eat and how, what ideas we feed our our minds and with whom, we can come to know a life adored. Conscious evolution and preventative care.
As a Practitioner, this broad-based medicine facilitates a very rich understanding of your health and accurately focuses in on the origin of disease. I value the quality of care that integrative medicine provides, and acknowledge that specific aspects of Western medicine; for example, emergency care, excel.
Chinese medicine, however, is rooted in the principle and prepared to uncover the specific and fundamental causes of disease. Idiopathic is a term unknown in this context.
Rather than focusing on the pathogen itself, my goal as your Practitioner, is to recognize your personal reactionary patterns (to pathogenic factors like the flu, to other people, to the world, to your emotions) and teach you how to recognize and commit to resolving any negative patterns that result in unhealthy energetic responses.
