I became fascinated and inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine upon beginning Acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatments to improve my health in 1980, with an American acupuncturist in California, who was greatly skilled and deeply rooted in the art, science and philosophy of living of this ancient medicine. With his encouragement I soon moved to San Francisco to begin my own formal studies at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, graduating in 1985.
Licensed nationally, in Ca., and in Arizona, I have been practicing now for 30 years.
I have been blessed with many great opportunities to use and deepen my knowledge and skills, and expand my compassion in patient care. These opportunities have included work with patients in addiction and trauma recovery at Sierra Tucson, clients from Southern Arizona Aids Foundation; guests in the medical department at Canyon Ranch Health Resort; and I several times have visited a coastal town in Mexico to offer treatment to villagers there. I have felt immensely blessed to offer this ancient natural medicine to so many.
I also was involved with other colleagues here in 2 NIH funded research projects at the University of Arizona, studying the effectiveness of use of Acupuncture in the treatment of major depression.
The scope of the conditions that Chinese medicine can and has treated, documented and researched over the millennia, is very broad and it has been my experience that nearly all patients receive some palpable benefit needed by body/mind from the treatments for the health challenge they are facing. I especially like integrating in the use of Chinese herbal medicine with Acupuncture treatment, and encouraging and guiding patients in a balanced way of living in harmony with the cycles of the natural world.
