Acupuncture, gua sha, cupping, lifestyle and nutritional recommendations, guided meditation and breathwork, mindset support

Since obtaining my Master of Science in Chinese Medicine in 2015, I have developed a gentle and effective acupuncture technique blending traditional Chinese and Japanese palpation technique plus adjunct therapies like gua sha and cupping into treatments. I strongly believe in addressing the role that emotions can play in our physical well-being and strive to bring a greater level of awareness in a calming treatment setting.  I feel honored to support patients as they navigate everyday stress plus challenges and transitions in their lives, including chronic pain and the fertility journey.

Sessions typically include gua sha or cupping and are custom tailored to the individual with the entire treatment time devoted to their care. Initial sessions include a thorough half an hour intake followed by a treatment. Follow-up sessions are 45 to 50 minutes.

My four-year pursuit of a Master of Science in Chinese Medicine included a clinic internship requirement of almost 2,000 hours / 918 treatments for underserved patients and veterans. Following that, I worked for two years at a chiropractic office in the financial district and then for four years at a thriving, boutique clinic in River North and Winnetka. Now I am in practice for myself.
