I am a licensed acupuncturist registered by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). I completed this training in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Roseville, Minnesota. I am also a certified practitioner of Shiatsu and skilled in the arts of cupping, moxibustion and auricular (ear) therapy. My post-graduate work involved a series of mentorships with Five-Element and Japanese style acupuncture practitioners. I use a Five Element approach in my acupuncture practice. In this method of acupuncture, needles are not retained, and moxa is sometimes used on acupuncture points before they are needled, "warming the house for the guest." Balancing the meridians and treating the person as a whole are also integral aspects of the Five Element method. In addition to this Five Element approach I utilizes Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in treatments if indicated. Clinical experiences include treatment of post traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain including neuropathy, palliative care, and supportive therapy for patients with cancer. I have treated a wide range of conditions, specializing in the treatment of autoimmune conditions, allergies, digestive issues and nutrition, endocrine imbalances, insomnia, psycho-emotional issues, and addiction.
Applying a comprehensive framework, formed through my many years of research and clinical practice, I am able to provide my patients with thoughtful and effective care for a diverse and complex range of health concerns.
