TRADITIOnal Chinese medicine
Using the ancient diagnostic tools of deep listening and observation I am able to craft an individualized treatment plan that follows the traditions of Chinese Medicine. The modalities that I incorporate may include acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, and/or massage.
While the bulk of my formal education has been in the Chinese herbal tradition, I also have a background in western herbology. My preference is to use local, organic herbal medicine using the wisdom of Chinese formulation as my guide. I also source only third party tested Chinese herbs to minimize any pesticides or heavy metals. I believe deeply in the profound healing that comes from our herbal allies.
I completed an intensive training in functional medicine with the Kresser Institute in 2016. The program had a specialized focus in digestive health, basic blood chemistry, and adrenal dysfunction. I am well versed in using western diagnostic tests to determine underlying causes of dis-ease as well as the best methods to address the causative factors.
