Serving Chicago, the North shore &
the western Suburbs!
I am Illinois Licensed Acupuncturist and is nationally board certified (NCCAOM) in acupuncture.
I grew up with Chinese Medicine. I just never thought I would be able to practice here in the Midwest. When I found out I could get licensed here – I was all in!
I genuinely care for my patients. I try to adjust every session to the specific needs of each individual. I am a caring, nurturing professional, who brings sensitivity and compassion to my patients.
My internship time in China was my most influential experience as a Chinese Medicine practitioner. I wish that our medicine here is more like that – a true integration of Eastern and Western care. Also, I believe in we need strong preventative care overuses reactionary care that we have in the US.
I believe the most rewarding cases are my fertility cases that were resolved and the couples were able to complete their families.
I treated an insomnia patient for a few weeks and we could not seem to get her energy level up or her sleep cycle any better. We talked a bit more in-depth in regards to her sleep habits and patterns. In doing so, I learned that her husband snores very loudly. We knew that she is a light sleeper from our previous talks. Ironically, that very day her husband was out of town for a trip and she had a profound sleep experience. We discovered that the acupuncture did give her body more rest even during the times her husband is at home. However, I would not have known about her husband snoring if we had not discussed her life in detail. So a failure turned into success.
I also thoroughly enjoy when people experience pain relief via acupuncture/Chinese medicine. I had a client with shoulder/neck pain that was coming to just get enough relief until she had time for surgery. It’s been 2 years and she does not believe she will ever need surgery. She knows that she will need to come in for treatments when she stresses or overdoes her neck and shoulders but she is mobile and her pain is very manageable.
Education, Certifications & CEU’s:
