What drew her to acupuncture was the holistic foundation and scope of practice that acupuncture has. She enjoys treating a wide variety of ailments and loves that acupuncture can address both physical and emotional changes in the body. While she has a keen interest in treating muscle and joint aches and pains, she enjoys the variety that comes with being an acupuncturist. She believes that there is a deep interconnectivity within the body, and that our body has the natural ability to heal itself. Thus, she aims to facilitating the changes needed to restore balance both inside and outside of the body to bring her patients to a place of pain-free and healthful living. She also believes in the value of informed healing and so provides education during most sessions. She enjoys working together with people to develop an individualized treatment plan that is based on specific, individual health goals and that can be implemented at a comfortable pace.
