What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?
I am focused on one patient at a time, and will often stay in the room during the treatment. This facilitates getting to know each patient better as well as to see how they are responding to treatment, which is particularly important in the beginning. In addition to acupuncture, I offer acupressure, Chinese herbal formulas, nutritional support, cupping, moxibustion, essential oil therapy, hand and ear micro-system therapy, Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture (certified), and tuning forks. I also use some diagnostic tests when appropriate.
What are you and your team proud of at your practice?
My goal is to help my patients when they are in discomfort or disharmony and then inspire them to make healthy choices. Some people come to me as a result of a referral, even though they might not be comfortable with (acupuncture) needles. I'm proud that I can offer a variety of non-needle therapies to ease their discomfort. My patients tell me they feel well-supported and well-cared for, and that's my reason for my practice.
