About My Practice
My goal as a practitioner is to provide a holistic approach to healthcare that incorporates Acupuncture and Bodywork along with a comprehensive evaluation of my patients' dietary and nutritional needs. This includes taking a look at the way that you eat, as well as putting together a customized nutritional program that addresses your own specific health issues. This will also improve your digestion, your concentration and maximize your energy throughout the day.
Although each patient's treatment plan is different, my goal is to reduce the number of office visits by combining Nutrition and Acupuncture treatments with NAET, The Bowen Technique, Tuina, Qi Gong and the use of Cold Lasers. I invite you to explore my website and learn more about these wonderful techniques and modalities.
I have been working in the alternative healthcare field for over 20years. Originally trained as a Massage Therapist, I took my work to a deeper level by receiving a Master's Degree in Acupuncture from the Tri-State College of Acupuncture. There I studied Acupuncture Physical Medicine with Dr. Mark Seem and Japanese Meridian Acupuncture with Kiiko Matsumoto. These two styles have greatly influenced the work that I do today.
Previous to my work in this field, for more than a decade, I was a professional opera singer and sang as a soloist with the NYC Opera. While I was singing, I had the opportunity to experience the work of practitioners all over the world and felt first hand what a profound effect Acupuncture and Nutrition can have on maintaining and reclaiming good health. Because of this connection I have worked with many performers over the years, including instrumentalists, dancers, actors and singers.
In my practice I see a great number of patients with chronic pain. I also work with many patients that have allergies that affect their respiratory or digestive tract, fatigue, depression, hormonal imbalances and infertility. This type of work helps your body remember how to repair and right itself after illness, injury or any type of stress. My goal is to make this a pain-free process that can be accomplished as quickly as possible.
I have a close working relationship with several medical doctors and physical therapists in the New York City area. Often, we work with a patient as a team to facilitate a speedy recovery. If your doctor has recommended Acupuncture to you, I would establish contact with him and keep him apprised of your progress. This will further benefit your treatment and care from both practitioners.
