IMG_4842

A little about me. I received my Masters of Acupuncture, Bachelors of Professional Studies, and Associate of Occupational Science of Massage Therapies in Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in 2011. Since then, my journey as an Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist has been amazing. My passion in life is traveling and helping people feel better. My philosophy on healing is: To heal is to restore yourself to an optimum health physically, mentally, and emotionally and become a whole person once again, body, mind, spirit and emotions. There is no greater feeling of being able to help someone be healthy again and be free of any sort of pain, stress and uneasiness. Best gift you can give to someone. I also love learning. Knowledge is a powerful thing. I love incorporating what I have learned into my acupuncture and massage treatments. So I invite you to come, rest, rejuvenate, and recover from my massage.
