About Oriental Medical Arts
At a young age, I began working in the Chinese medical field as a nurse. To further my career I decided to go back to school and learn western medicine, specifically in the field of plastic surgery. After years of hard work, long hours, and helping many patients I realized that my success was becoming detrimental to my own health. During my final years working in China, I began using moxibustion and acupuncture to take better care of myself so that I could in-turn take better care of others. Remarkably, I found the process of self-healing to be very powerful. By improving my own quality of life and properly dealing with my stress, the health of my own body improved and my happiness rose to new levels. Therefore, I was better equipped to provide the best care that my patients needed.
When I came to America, I soon realized that so many Americans also struggled with taking proper care of themselves, while at the same time, trying to deal with the stressors of everyday life. Thus, my passion for helping others led me to begin working with people here using the same techniques that improved my own quality of life.
I take great joy in sharing the wonders of ancient Chinese medicine with new patients and watching their lives transform. Seeing patients no longer suffer from aches and pains, their happiness and youthful energy return, all without the use of heavy pharmaceutical drugs - this has become my mission.
