About Me

 

Why Acupuncture?

I was born and raised in Oregon. Growing up my parents, elders and teachers instilled within me an appreciation of our environment, health and a passion for learning and helping others. These principles lead me to embark on a career as a teacher.  However as a teenager I was told I had a neuro/muscular disease and would be in a wheel chair by 30.  With a little denial and a lot of determination I made it half way through graduate school before developing severe muscle, joint pain and insomnia.  Fortunately I found several health care providers who helped me heal and succeed. I enjoyed teaching but was inspired by my healers to follow in their foot steps. I choose to study Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine because it quickly and effectively balances and helps heal the mind body and spirit.  Since 1999 I have gratefully practiced in the collaborative medical setting of Southwest Family Physicians.

I also enjoy situational humor and silliness and the healing power of laughter.  If you do to, please enjoy this 4 minute vidoe on youtube:
