I am committed to providing my patients with the highest quality of care through professionalism, respect, focused intent, and a compassionate ear. By formulating a treatment plan that is unique to you, and by using various modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I strive to help you achieve a state of vitality & health by balancing your body's energies, releasing blockages, and helping you to awaken your innate ability to heal. In keeping with the tradition of wholistic medicine, not only the body, but the health of the mind and emotions are always given consideration in treatment, for only then can one truly flourish. I hope to impart to you an understanding of your health from a new perspective, one that is empowering.
The ancient wisdom and art of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is a dynamic and potent healing system that has endured for thousands of years, and I am eager and passionate about sharing this wealth of knowledge and incredible healing potential with the Pittsburgh community.
