Eastern Medicine

Acupuncture

The earliest record of Acupuncture is from nearly 3,000 years ago…It has withstood the test of time, and its wisdom is ancient and true.

There are 13 main channels of energy or meridians, and my goal as a practitioner of Eastern Medicine is to bring harmony to these systems, using the ancient healing principles of Yin and Yang in combination with modern Integrative Medicine. It is my goal to put your mind at ease, using gentle needling techniques and energetic means to achieve harmony for my clients. The initial consultation includes a full client history, acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, and herbal medicine recommendations.

Pediatric Acupuncture

During grad school, I was blessed to have my internship be at the Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles (CHLA). It was here that I initially learned Japanese Style Acupuncture, specifically Kiiko Matsumoto’s teachings. This style of Acupuncture is specifically great for children because it uses minimal needless, or “whiskers” as we would call them at CHLA. I have continued studying this particular technique for many years now and I am happy to say that I feel comfortable and confident treating young children for a variety of symptoms ranging from the common cold to childhood cancers or spectrum/behavioral disorders.

Facial Acupuncture

The focus of facial acupuncture is to increase blood flow and therefore, collagen, to the face and neck areas. It is amazing to see results over a handful of treatments (a lot of clients like to take their before and after pictures!). It is less invasive than botox or other forms of skin rejuvenation and often less expensive as well. I also use gua sha tools, facial cupping, and Earthtonics incredible organic skin care line to help redefine what it means to nourish your skin.
