HOLISTIC MEDICAL CARE FOR BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT
BALANCE | ALIGNMENT | PURPOSE
Chinese Medicine is a 2,500 year old system deeply rooted in the healing powers of the natural world, which has an efficacy that has stood the test of time. It is a safe and drug free way to treat many conditions, and utilizes such techniques as acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, gua sha, bodywork, and dietary therapy, tailored to each patient based the nature of the concern. Chinese medicine, specifically acupuncture and herbal therapy, has been used for thousands of years to treat common issues such as chronic pain, acute injuries, repetitive strain, digestive disorders, headaches, women's issues, allergies, insomnia, respiratory problems, immune support, poor circulation, and emotional imbalance.
I began my personal journey with Chinese Medicine over 15 years ago, turning to acupuncture for the treatment of migraines when modern medicine had failed me. Inspired and in awe of the effectiveness of Chinese medicine, I left the corporate world to train at Tri State College of Acupuncture in New York City. There I learned four styles of acupuncture from master practitioners including: Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Kiiko Matsumoto Japanese Acupuncture (KM), Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM - which utilizes trigger point and dry needling techniques), and Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM). The diversity of my training gives me different strategies for addressing the wide range of issues that my patients are dealing with.
I continue my education under the mentorship of Timothy Aitken, L.Ac., master practitioner and founder of Eight Branches Healing Arts. I strive to make Chinese medicine accessible to those who need it, most recently completing a medical service mission to Nepal. It's a pleasure to provide acupuncture Woodstock, NY and acupuncture Catskills.
