With over 20 years of experience in Oriental medicine, Massage Therapy, Medical QiGong Energy Healing, and related modalities, it is my purpose to use these gifts to help create a healing experience in the unique way that each individual needs.

Everything I do is based on the energetics of Oriental medicine and the Five Element philosophy. Most importantly I work with what you most connect with as I strongly believe that people are naturally drawn to therapies that will benefit them – something in us Knows. I also offer advice, based on my professional experience, as to what I feel will be the most efficient and effective path to your goal.

With respect and compassion, I use a combination of therapies and tools to address physical, emotional, and spiritual issues. Our bodies are designed to heal so let’s create the circumstances to allow the healing to happen.
