The first time I received Acupuncture was in northwestern India in 1999. The Tibetan practitioner and I could not communicate with spoken language, and yet through feeling my pulses and looking at my tongue, he could treat me and resolve the issue I was having. I was fascinated, and a journey began.
With a lifelong interest in health & well being, I arrived at Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine on my own healing path decades ago. I used Acupuncture and Herbs to help me recover from a surgery, and to sleep more soundly, and to find more stillness and balance in my life, among other things. And I have since learned how to nurture my desire to help others with my practice of Acupuncture and Eastern Herbal Medicine.
I was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. I obtained a B.S. from the University of Georgia, and later completed the 4-year Master program for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Daoist Traditions College of Oriental Medicine in Asheville, NC. I have been treating clients since 2013.
As a surfer, mountain adventurer, runner, cyclist and environmentalist, I have cultivated my connection with Nature and its healing powers for decades, and I bring these energies into the work I do with clients.
I am a Licensed Acupuncturist in South Carolina and North Carolina, and I hold a National Board Certification in Oriental Medicine (Herbal Medicine) from the NCCAOM.
I studied Qi Gong and learned Stone Medicine with the Jade Purity School's 88th-generation Daoist Priest, Jeffrey Yuen. And I completed Levels I, II, and III Advanced Esoteric Acupuncture training with Dr. Mikio Sankey in Boulder, Colorado.
I also enjoyed three mentorships for furthering my connection with Ageless Wisdom and the Divine Feminine.
I believe in the powers of therapeutic touch, and before becoming an Acupuncturist and Herbalist, I became a Licensed Massage Therapist in Hawaii in 2007, and have also been trained in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage and Healing energy work from Kumu Karen Leialoha Carroll,
I see both male and female clients, welcoming ALL
persons of any race, religion, or gender/sexual orientation.
