Healing Philosophy

Classical Chinese Medicine

I am dedicated to helping you find practical solutions to your health challenges!

I practice Classical Chinese Medicine, which is a full system of medicine that has been shared, 

documented and refined for nearly 5000 years. 

Experiencing this medicine has been a completely life-changing experience and I am dedicated to sharing my knowledge, time and experience with you, so you can experience these benefits.

I am a graduate of Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts in Asheville, NC. I am blessed to have been educated by many amazing and experienced practitioners such as acupuncturists, herbalists, chiropractors, medical doctors, psychologists, 

counselors and professional researchers.

I entered the world of medicine on the ground level. Since age 19, I've been an Emergency Medical Technician for the US Navy and Charleston County EMS, a Battlefield Medic with the US Marines, and an Intensive Care Nurse, where I helped stabilize patients after open heart surgery and heart transplantations. I have firsthand experience seeing both the strenghts and weaknesses inherent in modern and ancient medicines.

All of my experiences in medicine have led me to develop a deep conviction and confidence in the ancient Chinese Medicine perspective. It is safe, effective, non-toxic and honors the body's ability to heal with the right kind of assistance. I have witnessed many conditions that treated that were otherwise relegated to only being manageable, rather that treatable. When I inform a patient that their patterns and conditions are treatable by natural and non-pharmacological means, I am confident in that assessment. The amount of work and time needed varies between each person and condition. If a patient needs to see a specialist or another type of practitioner, I am ready to help make that happen as well.

Cupping & Gua Sha

Some of the many adjunct techniques taught to Chinese Medicine practitioners, these tools are used along-side our other skills in order to compliment our treatments and improve 

outcomes.

Both Gua Sha and Cupping increase blood flow into blocked and stagnant tissues, allowing the body to begin repair work and flush out toxins and metabolic wastes. The result being that soft tissue becomes more elastic and pliable.
