The Acupuncturist -
Natural Medicine Specialist
In 8 weeks my pain was gone and I have maintained a pain free life since.
My interest in natural medicine started at a young age. I often searched for different healing modalities that would help my mother with the many health challenges she faced. My searches led me to eventually becoming an acupuncturist, herbalist, yoga teacher, meditation instructor and nutritionist.
My philosophy is...no matter what health condition or pain condition we are experiencing, actively addressing our “Life Basics” will help support and encourage the natural forces of our bodies which are the true healers of disease, pain and suffering.
“Life Basics” are breathing, digestion, elimination, sleep, physical movement, mind-body relationship, personal experience and personal choices.
My studies have led me to some great teachers like Jeffrey Yuen (88th generation Daoist priest and leading Chinese medicine doctor and scholar), Leon Hammer, MD (Author and world leader of pulse diagnosis), Robert Johns, OMD (Author and teacher of classical acupuncture techniques), and Yogi Bhajan (Master of Kundalini yoga and Hatha yoga).
I am an acupuncturist in the Kaiser Permanente Chronic Pain Department. I developed and teach the complimentary medicine curriculum for their severe chronic pain patients. I have treated over 7,000 patients since I began working at Kaiser Permanente.
I have a degree in music and am often playing in local bay area bands. I am married with a baby girl.
