About Me

I began my study of Chinese Medicine in 2004, under the tutelage and guidance of Dr. Dirk Hein, PhD.D. M.Ac (UK) at the Wu Hsing Tao School of Acupuncture. Later, I studied Classical Chinese Herbal Medicine with Cindy Micleu, MTCM., L.Ac. at the Jade Institute. I have also incorporated Japanese style acupuncture and needling techniques into my treatment sessions which are know their gentleness. Additional approaches I have studied are, Master Tung’s Acupuncture and Richard tan’s Balance Method. In 1982, I received my licensure for Massage Therapy (L.M.T.) and I have maintained a private practice in Washington State ever since. I enjoy tuning into where in the body the patient needs support to come into balance i.e. meridian pathways, the cranial sacral system, myofascial system, musculoskeletal system, etc. I like to blend the many techniques I have learned to address the unique needs of each patient. I feel honored to be a life-long student of natural ways to heal and balance the body.
