Professional Objective:

My passion in my professional life is to understand the human body, neurophysiologically, and how acupuncture can effect, modify, and bring balance to this system. Offering the best quality of Integrated Traditional Chinese Medicine to the public is quintessential. This includes strategically integrating Traditional Chinese medical philosophy with our Western medical scientific analytical mindset in the area of biochemistry and neurophysiology. Grasping a firm understanding of Traditional Chinese medicine, in its application through clinical experience and researching the classics, while studying neurophysiology and western medical sciences as a whole, identifying and strengthening the benefits of CAM modalities while bridging the gap between Western medicine and Eastern medicine.
