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
emotional and physical trauma
neck and shoulder tightness
- 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 use she/her/they/them pronouns.
Covid Protocol (Updated Summer 2023)
As we've moved into the endemic stage of Covid, I ask my patients to wear a mask if:
You've had close contact with someone who has a cold or flu
You've travelled by plane or ship within the last 48 hours
If you’re sick, please text me and I’d be happy to assess with you if we should keep or move your appointment (no penalty for last minute rescheduling or cancellations in these situations)
