Acupuncture and Acu Facials

For inner balance and outer beauty.
Be Well. Stay Well.

Discover the path to your overall well-being

In my practice, I incorporate acupuncture along with other healing methods from Traditional Chinese Medicine to create an individualized effective and holistic wellness plan for all of my clients. In addition, I offer Facial Rejuvenation for inner balance and outer beauty. It’s a holistic way to restore your skin’s natural radiance and effect a youthful appearance without harsh or invasive procedures.


Why Acupuncture?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is proven to alleviate pain and increase overall health, wellness, and longevity. It can be effective for a wide variety of conditions, everything from back pain and arthritis to allergies and digestive issues to depression and anxiety. I integrate acupuncture, along with other traditional healing methods such as cupping, moxibustion (heat), herbs and healthy food into my treatments to support a natural and holistic healing process.
