I have had a life long interest in the spiritual practices of meditation and contemplation. The traditions I have immersed myself in are Christian, Sufi, Hindu, and Chinese. Along the way I earned Bachelor degrees in Communication Studies and Electronic Engineering Technology. I have steeped myself in the ancient wisdom traditions yet am keenly aware of the power of modern science. Not only is it necessary to have a dialogue between East and West but also between Past and Present. This journey led me to the study and practice of Chinese Medicine. I earned my Masters in Acupuncture at the Tai Sophia Institute. I have  practiced acupuncture for three years and a form of Japanese acupressure called Shiatsu for fifteen years.


I am confident the practices of Chinese Medicine - acupuncture, acupressure and moxibustion - do lead to a wide range of health benefits.


Wherever you are on your journey there are times to take stock in the direction one is heading and make adjustments. As in every journey, there are challenges ranging from broken toes to broken spirits. Chinese Medicine has opened doors for me in navigating those challenges and I believe it can do the same for you, yielding greater physical and emotional health and a more fulfilling life.
