The Instructor

My passion in my professional life is to help bring acupuncture into the center of mainstream medicine. I do this through educating and providing neuroscience acupuncture training and treatments that are neuroanatomical evidence-based, published research supported, and clinically proven. Offering the best quality of integrated, scientific, 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 neuroscience and biochemistry. Grasping a firm understanding of Traditional Chinese medicine, in its application through clinical experience and researching the Chinese medical classics, while studying neurophysiology and other western medical sciences, to identify and strengthen the benefits of acupuncture while bridging the gap between Western medicine and 21st century acupuncture.
