This perspective combined with my more that 20 years experience treating and studying the human body is what most benefits my patients.
I developed my assessment skills through many years of dance training, exploration with Continuum movement, practicing shiatsu, and studying herbs. All this, balanced with a hands-on approach to healing and the intellectual orientation of East Asian and Western medicine resources enables treatments to have depth, scope and success.
with a process that is quite different from visiting a conventional doctor. For me, this involves taking time to listen to each person’s story and asking a series of questions to discern the nature of the condition. Questions concern constitutional issues of hot and cold, thirst, sweat, energy levels, sleep, digestion, pain, etc. I combine this information with pulse and tongue examination to determine a pattern of imbalance and come up with a corresponding treatment for the condition.
During the course of treatment, I help guide the patient toward a lifestyle that supports optimal health. Making use of research derived from conventional and alternative medicine, I develop a plan in synch with the demands of the patient’s work, family and healthcare needs.
