Welcome to my practice.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
I bring 25 years of experience working in holistic health to my practice in Durham.
As a Licensed Acupuncturist, herbalist and practitioner of Chinese medicine, I utilize acupuncture, cupping, orthopedic bodywork, tuina, Chinese, western and native herbs, nutrition and lifestyle counseling in order to resolve common and chronic health problems. Together, we will get you out of pain and discomfort and restore vitality, ease, connectivity and strength in your body. This relief will translate to more capacity to enjoy the rest of your life.
I believe that we are naturally whole and that health and well-being are our birthright. I meet patients where they are at, whether its in helping relieve anxiety and pain, support your body during pregnancy, jump start labor, heal from a nasty cold or embark on big health changes to address chronic illness.
Come see me if you are experiencing:
*chronic and acute pain: including neck, shoulder, hand, wrist, elbow, knee, ankle, foot pain, low back and hip pain
*pregnancy related issues like: nausea and vomiting, anemia, constipation, carpal tunnel syndrome, heartburn, hemorrhoids and varicosities, edema, headaches, threatened miscarriage, tiredness and candida
*support around IVF and assisted reproduction
*postpartum depression or lactation problems
*women's health concerns like infertility, cramp pain, pms and menstrual cycle regulation
*insomnia, restless sleep, difficulty falling asleep and easily waking up
*autoimmune and thyroid conditions
* low immunity and cold and flu care
*digestive problems like ibs, gerd, constipation and more.
* I offer special packages for women and pregnant people wanting to prepare for or stimulate labor as well as a treatment to assist in turning breech babies
If you are wanting a partner in health, and are not finding solutions in western medicine alone, I make space to really listen to your needs and craft the best treatment plan to bring you relief. I like to see my patients thriving, not just surviving and I have the tools and flexibility needed for your unique situation. In our initial treatment we discuss realistically what to expect from acupuncture to get you on the road to long term solutions.
