My philosophy on health and wellness focuses on the mind, body and spirit of the individual. I believe that each treatment should be customized for the individual's own specific signs and symptoms and that healing the root cause of the illness is the ultimate goal. I think it is best to treat illness with the least invasive measures first and progress to more complex treatment plans only when necessary. This approach helps to avoid any negative side effects and allows us an opportunity to assess and reevaluate the treatment at each step. I will often employ a combination of acupuncture, auxiliary techniques and herbal formulas to address a condition. Herbal formulas can be extremely effective in continuing a treatment long after the needles are removed. I ask my clients to open their minds to a different way of perceiving disease and a different way of healing the body.
