The first time I received acupuncture I felt like I had found a language I already knew, but had forgotten. Acupuncture is an invitation within, an integration of body, mind and spirit. Initially I had sought treatment for physical reasons, but I was amazed at the effect it had on my emotional state. I wanted to learn more and found the teacher I was looking for in Master Acupuncturist and Taoist priest Jeffrey Yuen. My studies in Chinese Medicine have colored the lenses through which I view the world, that we are intrinsically connected to this earth and to each other, that you treat the person not the illness and that all diseases are rooted in the spirit.
My personal healing journey has has led me to study many other healing modalities and my treatments are informed by these studies. My passion for crystals, tarot, essential oils and Reiki have all found their way into my treatments. Most recently I discovered Breathwork and have been blown away by how deeply and profoundly it has helped me. I have never experienced a healing modality that has such an immediate effect, it has transformed how I feel and show up in the world and I’m so excited to now be sharing this healing modality with you.
Healing isn’t done to you, it’s a co-creation and it has been a tremendous honor to be on the patient as well as practitioner side of things. My passion in my practice is to help others walk a path of transformation in their lives, to open doors to hope and wellness that appear closed, to live deeply and richly while we are here and find a lot of joy and laughter in the process.
