I have some new practices in place to keep everyone safe and healthy while visiting the clinic. Please be aware of these new policies:
Before you arrive:
In order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, I will be pre-screening everyone who comes in. At this time I am not equipped to treat anyone with any respiratory illnesses of any kind (even if you know it is not COVID-19), nor anyone with a fever. You will be asked the following questions, and if you answer ‘yes’ to any of them, we will reschedule your appointment for a later date. Because I share this office with other practitioners, this is an essential rule and there will be no exceptions.
For the safety of our staff, other patients, and yourself, please be truthful and candid in your answers.
Have you had a fever in the last two weeks? YES NO
Do you have any shortness of breath? YES NO
Do you have a dry cough? YES NO
Do you have a sore throat? YES NO
In the past week have you lost the ability to smell and/or taste? YES NO
Is anyone in your household suffering from any of the above? YES NO
What to expect when you arrive:
*You will be required to wear a mask: handmade or surgical masks are fine. Any mask with a vent (like the N95) is NOT acceptable (or we can seal the vent with masking tape).
*Please wait out front until I greet you at the time of your appointment.
*Your temperature will be taken as you are brought into the office. If your temperature is over 100.4°F we will reschedule you for a later date.
*You will be asked to stop in the bathroom and wash you hands immediately upon entering, and then will be led to a treatment room.
*Please bring your own water bottle to drink from, as we will not be able to provide tea or water. Consider hydrating well before you arrive.
*Please wear warm, loose fitting clothing that will not require much removal, as I will not be able to use blankets.
*Please do not to bring anyone along. No one will be allowed to wait in the waiting room.
If you have questions for me about the safety precautions we are taking at the office (or about anything else), please reach out to me. I am more than happy to talk with you by phone or email. I will still be scheduling TeleHealth visits, so if you prefer to meet that way, let me know that as well.
Through traditional methods including acupuncture, cupping, tui na massage, moxibustion, exercise, herbal medicine, and nutritional counseling, I can help you to raise your health to a wonderful level and enjoy life more fully.
Some common problems that can be treated include:

I hold a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, as well as a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and have trained extensively in the US and China in the use of acupuncture and herbal medicine. Utilizing traditional diagnostic methods such as interviewing the patient, feeling the pulses on the wrist, inspecting the tongue, and physical assessment, I am able to assess a patient's health and formulate a treatment plan. The treatment may include one or more of the following; acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, tui na massage, electro-stimulation, topical herbal preparations, physical exercises or stretches, herbal remedies, and/or dietary counseling. Some of these modalities are explained on the services page.
Each session includes a full intake and assessment, followed by treatment with acupuncture. It may also include other modalities of treatment like cupping, gua sha, tui na massage, moxibustion, infrared heat therapy, or electro-stimulation at no extra cost if paid out-of-pocket. A session takes about 1 hour. The cost of herbs is not included.
