Before I discovered the world of Acupuncture and herbs, I was on my way to become a Western doctor. I suffered from horrible allergies(year around) and I always hosted a few infections every winter. I was referred to an acupuncturist, and began to receive treatments. Within a few visits, my allergies began to lessen and my infections vanished...my days of antibiotics were over!
I began to read everything I could get my hands on concerning Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, and what I call "Energy Medicine". This led me to becoming a Reiki practitioner and entering Chinese Medical School at AOMA in Austin.
After 4 years Chinese Medical School, I became a Texas Licensed and National Board certified Acupuncturist, my education was just beginning. Two years after opening my practice, 8 out 10 patient's health goals were met with success. I wondered why I couldn't get those last two patients healed with Chinese medicine. I began seeking knowledge from practitioners from around the world. I began learning: NAET (Allergy Elimination Technique), Functional Blood Analysis, Hormone and Adrenal testing, Dr.Yan Xin Life Sciences Technology (Internal Qi Gong), Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing), Nutritional Response Therapy (ULAN), NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique), Esoteric (chakra) acupuncture, Korean hand acupuncture, Master Tung (Miracle points) acupuncture, Acutonics (Tuning Fork therapy), advanced cupping techniques, Heel Homeopathy, personalized detox programs, and Weston A. Price Nutrition (Nutrient Dense Eating).
My vision is to hold a space where patients can have an understanding of their bodies, hearts and discover their ultimate destiny in life. I strive for powerful, impactful, life changing sessions with my patients where we both discover their root cause of disease or imbalance and treat the whole person including physical, emotional and spiritual realms. I want to remind people that our natural state is HEALTH; we should thrive, feel happy and energetic in our being.
There is a Chinese saying that goes something like this: “ A good doctor helps to heal the physical body, A great doctor helps someone to heal themselves, the Best doctor helps you to discover your ultimate destiny in life."
