I'm a New York licensed acupuncturist.
During my 20-year career in finance with a MBA/CPA background, I was diagnosed with several health conditions, like incurable autoimmune condition, gastro-intestinal issues including ulcers, seasonal, food allergies, and mold exposures. Conventional medicine offered one solution for these symptoms: medication for the rest of my life.
Because I grew up in a Chinese family where soups, herbal formula, cupping and moxabustion are ways of living a healthy lifestyle, I knew possibilities were available for a different outcome.
My open mind and persistence lead me to acupuncture, nutrition and lifestyle changes. Three months into these changes, I became and still remain symptoms and medication free.
One of the most profound and unexpected side effects was the first time in 15 years, without medication, I walked through Central Park in the middle of Spring, and I could breath, my eyes were clear and nose could smell the freshness of the greens. I was immensely grateful for and became curious about this ancient healing art called acupuncture.
I then earned a Master of Science in Acupuncture from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine NY while working full time in corporate America. The curriculum consisted of 2,500 hours of training in Traditional Chinese Medicine with heavy emphasis on biosciences such as biology, chemistry, pharmacology, ortho-neuro evaluation, anatomy, pathophysiology, gynecology, dermatology, and psychology. I continue my training in the doctoral program for acupuncture.
I love empowering and supporting others to live in a body that fully embraces life.
I invite you to choose your team of health care providers to serve the highest good of your body, mind and spirit.
