My promise and my business model are built around 3 principals: Service to those in need, Compassion; for those who suffer and Tradition; seeking truth in all endeavors.
"I was drawn to Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine because it reminds us how to live a life that harmonizes body, mind and spirit with nature, considering an individual's unique environment. I am passionate about sharing this wisdom in intimate and integrative settings, working with individuals, communities and groups to achieve greater understanding and unity for all forms of health and wellbeing. With this expanded perspective on health and life, I can inspire and empower my patients to take control of their health and well-being. The goal is to empower people to take ownership of their own health to the best of their ability."
