Since 1992, I have been studying techniques to treat soft tissue injury and pain. I began my career as a massage therapist working in a neurologist's office. After learning several types of manual therapies like myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, and visceral manipulation, I decided to study acupuncture. In 2017, I graduated from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Acupuncture and manual therapies form a powerful combination for eliminating pain. Acupuncture however, treats many ailments. Let me design a plan of treatment that addresses your specific health needs.
All the structures of your body depend on the smooth flow of blood, fluids, and qi for optimal function.
Cupping and Gua Sha aid in the circulation of blood by bringing blood through the cells to the surface of the body. That is why you will see redness and bruising after a cupping or gua sha treatment. It is not painful and the results are fantastic.
Palpation is an essential diagnostic tool in Chinese Medicine. Doing tui na or massage on a patient helps me to assess their tissues and choose the most beneficial acupuncture points.
