About My Practice

The Five Elements

Whereas traditional western medicine focuses primarily on relieving symptoms, Oriental Medicine traces these symptoms to diagnose and correct patterns of underlying disharmony.
Following a background in Science, Psychology and Personal Health Care, the Acupuncture for Harmony system developed out of a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, FL.
As each patient and each case is unique, some or all of the following systems will be integrated in the process of diagnosis and healing.

Having been trained as a Classical Five Element Practitioner, I am able to treat people on a very individualized and deep level.
Each treatment is designed to bring the body into balance within itself as well as with the environment of each season.
Balancing the flow of energy in the body creates an optimum environment for healing, and symptoms are also treated in order to alleviate pain so that the body can focus it’s energy on healing.
