Spring Health Tune-up
Spring brings the promise of new beginnings, growth and expansion.
We increase our physical activity and enjoy more outdoor time. Trees are budding, flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing and seasonal allergy sufferers start sneezing.
We are all affected by shifting seasons. Winter has had us inside, storing energy and growing deeper roots for spring, when we emerge from our ‘hibernation state’ and reach high for the sun.
As we begin to expose our bodies more to the warmth, inhale breezes that float the pollen, and ready ourselves for increased physical activity, Acupuncture is a great way to tune our bodies to the elements.
By carefully listening to your individual patterns of the physical body through symptoms you may be having, Chinese medicine practitioners can support subtle shifts through acupuncture that eliminate energy blockages, open airways and transform congestion. Acupuncture can assist in making this your best spring yet!

I view the human body as a remarkable vehicle for change. Through conquering my own autoimmune disease, I witnessed first-hand the powerful potential of Chinese medicine and the challenges presented in achieving health.
I received my graduate diploma from Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine, where I was taught to understand the energetic composition of the human body. I learned to recognize the elements in each individual’s landscape through my Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. I was recently led to study the Mayan technique of Divine Intervention, which supplemented my belief that in order to achieve true wellness, it is essential to treat the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies as a whole.
It is my goal to apply all of this in my approach to care by re-establishing a balance of the laws of nature, restoring the innate intelligence within the physical body and allowing the patient to become an active participant in restoring health within.
