“"As a traditional naturopath and acupuncturist my practice is multifold. I work with patients from an individualized perspective, and in addition to acupuncture, utilize nutrition, lifestyle and herbal approaches. There is a strong focus on educating the patient in self-help methods. Patients are encouraged to ask questions and take an active role in their therapy program. I like to give my patients the "fishing pole" and not just the fish! My practice is not an acupuncture factory. I spend at least 45 minutes to over an hour with each patient and take the time to listen, really listen.

The following are a few conditions that I have treated over the last 25 years: Neurological and musculoskeletal disorders: headaches of all types, neck and shoulder pain, tennis elbow, low back pain, sciatica, paralysis and palsy. Other areas of expertise include: allergies; weight loss; gastrointestinal disorders; reproductive problems especially infertility

Having trained in China and Europe and with over 25 years experience, I'm able to offer patients an authentic and comprehensive treatment plan. I also teach traditional Chinese medicine for the Paracelsus Biological Medicine Network (www.pbmn.org) which conducts conferences on the principles and practices of European Biological Medicine.”

They would never suggest that I buy something that wasn't necessary, and never pressured me. They were always very considerate and professional. I was completely at ease during my appointment here. They went to great lengths to make sure I was completely relaxed and comfortable the entire time. The staff was able to answer every single question I had. It was clear that everyone was trained in the methodology of acupuncture, even if they would not be performing the treatments. I love that they are always more than happy to answer my questions, and actually welcome it. I've felt like an annoyance at some other places I've visited when I've tried to ask a lot of questions, but not here. I've never seen anyone who is more respected by their staff. The entire staff only had great things to say about working there, and it made me want to return all the more.
