I've been there. I've struggled with pain that prevented me from living the life I wanted. Stress that overwhelmed me to the point that I lost the motivation and energy to enjoy my life to the fullest. Finding acupuncture is what helped me and the reason I became an acupuncturist.
I graduated from Southwest Acupuncture College with a Masters of Oriental Medicine. I am certified as a Diplomate of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, as well as a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Colorado and a member of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado. I am also a Nationally Certified Chinese Herbalist.
I trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine along with the Balance Method taught by Dr. Richard Tan. The Balance Method is effective in treating pain, OB/GYN, digestive complaints, insomnia, and general wellness. Dr. Richard Tan was a third-generation, Taiwanese acupuncturist. My training included more than 3,000 hours of education and over 1,000 hours of clinical practice.
I studied in China and received a certificate from the Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine Hospital located in Harbin, China. I studied in inpatient and outpatient departments such as Pediatrics, OB/GYN, Rehabilitation, Orthopedic, Dermatology, Tuina, Cardiovascular, and Neurology.
I chose acupuncture because I values treating the body as a whole, treating each patient as an individual and treating the root of my patient’s problems. I strongly believes in the benefit of preventative medicine and the importance of keeping my patients in a state of good health.
Before getting my master's degree and becoming an acupuncturist, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Human Services with a concentration in Mental Health Counseling and worked as a social worker.
