Using ancient wisdom to repair the damages of modern life

Traditional Eastern medicine has proven to be one of the most effective ways to treat pain, chronic health conditions, and improve overall well-being. This is because our medicine views the mind, body and spirit as a connected and integrated whole.

 

I specialize in a gentle style of Japanese acupuncture that is guided by more than 2000 years of wisdom and is based upon your body's innate ability to heal and re-balance itself. I treat a wide array of conditions such as:

 

  • chronic and acute pain

  • sports injuries

  • emotional and physical trauma

  • low energy

  • stress

  • neck and shoulder tightness

  • digestive issues

  • immune support
  • headaches & migraines

 

I will work with you to achieve your short and long term health goals with a holistic treatment plan. I place a high value on educating patients because the more knowledge we have, the easier it is to make healthy choices. With each treatment you will learn how our medicine works and receive individually-tailored nutritional advice, stretches and exercises whenever relevant.

 

My practice is committed to creating a safe and positive healthcare experience, especially for LGBTQ+ and BIPOC-identified people. As a child of first generation immigrants, I'm proud to be bilingual in Mandarin and English. I identify as a cis-gender, queer woman of color and prefer she/her pronouns.



 

Covid Protocol Update

After much thought, I have decided that as of Dec 15, 2021 I am requiring all new and established patients be fully vaccinated against Covid in order to make in-person appointments. Telehealth and phone appointments are also available for those who prefer. 

All patients are still asked to wear their masks during their acupuncture sessions. If you have any questions or concerns, please give me a call and I'm happy to talk with you about my decision.

Thank you for your continued flexibility and patience as each of us learns how to navigate Covid as a feature of our lives for the foreseeable future. I am deeply appreciative of the thoughtfulness of my patients and their genuine care for others.
