"Having been a musician and athlete for most of my life, I know about the intimate connection between body, mind and spirit. Maintaining that free-flowing connection, is the foundation of Eastern medicinal practices that I have dedicated my life to bringing to patients from varying communities and in collaboration with the Western medical world. Committing to walking the path towards well-being with each patient is an energetic exchange and partnership that I value greatly. It is with honor and duty, that I continue to be of service, utilizing acupuncture and acupressure medicine to empower each individual on their “path of zen” as they awaken to their own innate ability to heal themselves."
