Before pursuing Chinese medicine, I worked in the financial industry as well as non profit arts management. I’d been patient of acupuncture for over 20 years when one day lying on the table, I realized I wanted to share this gift with everyone. This medicine helped me understand my body in a whole new way. This lead me to study at the Pacific College of Health & Science, the largest school of Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine in the country.

Because there is always more to learn and many masters to learn from, I continued to study orthopedic acupuncture techniques for chronic and acute pain with some of the top practitioners in the field; studied stroke rehabilitation techniques and am certified by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Oncology Acupuncture. I even advanced my practice of Japanese acupuncture at Meiji University of Integrative Medicine in Kyoto, Japan.

I have enjoyed the opportunity to volunteer my time for various organizations, notably the Bumi Sehat Foundation International, a non-profit, village-based birthing and community health clinic in Bali, Indonesia, for staff of the Hospital for Joint Diseases, Lenox Hill Hospitals and runners in the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers event.

Because I get asked (often) what our education is like: I have has a Master of Science in Acupuncture from Pacific College of Health & Science, the largest school of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the US with campuses in New York, Chicago and San Diego. It was an intensive 5 year program of study combining both eastern and western medical coursework and included more than 3,000 hours of clinical experience seeing patients. I iboard certified by the National Commission on the Certification of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and licensed in the state of New York.

I am excited to have opened a multi disciplinary health and wellness space on the upper west side of Manhattan where I run my practice specializing in acute and chronic pain conditions with a special interest in immune health, anxiety, Lyme disease and related conditions.

I know how busy and hectic life can get in New York. We need to be operating at optimal efficiency just to navigate around town while picking up groceries for dinner, the dry cleaning, fitting in a workout all while calculating whether to cross the park at 66th or 79th depending on the time of day. I am excited to offer you a brief respite and powernap to recharge your batteries and melt away the pain. It changed my life and I think it can change yours too.
