I received my Bachelor of Arts from Santa Barbara college of oriental medicine and my massage training from Santa Barbara Bodyworks in Santa Barbara, Ca. In my practice, I incorporate acupuncture, body work, Chinese herbal medicine, and lifestyle counseling. With these tools, I can successfully treat a variety of health problems. My goal in treatment is to stimulate the body's ability to repair itself and maintain wellness. My masters program provided extensive training in western medicine and I firmly believe the most effective medical care acknowledges the strengths and benefits of intergrating eastern and western medicine.
