One of the beauties of traditional Chinese medicine is that it draws on thousands of years of documented herbal knowledge and uses taoist principles to cultivate harmony with nature in its approach to cultivating health. My practice aims to integrate the holistic orientation of traditional Chinese medicine with other forms of traditional medicine and a thorough understanding of western bio medicine thus providing complete care. We will discover ways that your diet and eating habits are and aren't working for you, and help you get more connected to eating in a way that is linked with the seasons and with your own constitution.
My training also includes European, West African and indigenous herbal medicine, medicine that is female centered and rooted in family and community. I work with simple, easy to take western herbal medicine as decoctions, tinctures and pills as well as customized Chinese herbal formulas to find what is right for you. In the spirit of holistic health, I sometimes prescribe herbal baths, essential oil balms and other topicals and I work with spiritual hygiene in the home. I am available for home or space-based consults to discuss making your home or space feel safe, clean, clear and secure. I prescribe herbs for the space and garden that act as your energetic plant allies, and herbal baths for your floors and front door, herbal as well as resinous incenses to smoke out your space and protective talisman for your walls and entryways.
