I'm a New York licensed acupuncturist, board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
My healing journey during a 20-year stint in corporate finance led me to acupuncture.
I reversed several incurable autoimmune conditions, gastro-intestinal issues, ulcers, seasonal/food allergies, and mold exposures. I have also overcome post surgical pain, allergy and sensitivities to medication. All with acupuncture, life style changes and nutrition modification.
Growing up Chinese pre-exposed me to different ways to approach life and health. Where eating with the seasons, acupuncture, herbal formula, cupping and moxabustion are part of daily living, I explored these options when conventional protocol was life-long medication for the diagnosis I received.
A bonus on this journey was that, for the first time in 15 years I was able to walk through Central Park in the middle of Spring, breathing through my nose, my eyes clear, fully appreciating the scent of this urban forest, completely medication free.
Grateful and curious, I went on to complete the Master of Science in Acupuncture at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine NY with a full-time career in corporate America. The curriculum consisted of 2,500 hours of training in Traditional Chinese Medicine with heavy emphasis on biosciences in biology, chemistry, pharmacology, ortho-neuro evaluation, anatomy, pathophysiology, gynecology, dermatology, and psychology. I continue my training in the doctoral program for acupuncture.
