I have practiced acupuncture, somatic therapies, and yoga for over 21 years. I am passionate about sharing the medical arts, movement, meditation, and mind-body practices.
I graduated from the International Institute of Chinese Medicine in 2001 with a Masters degree in Oriental Medicine. I have also studied in five university hospitals in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, and Hangzhou. From 2008 - 2011 I lead educational tours to China for doctors and post-graduates. I have practiced and taught acupuncture and yoga in the US, Vietnam and Thailand.
The connection between the mind and body, emotional healing, and somatic therapies are also interests of mine. I frequently include body awareness practices, breathing techniques, and Voice Dialogue into my treatments.
I'm a strong advocate of movement therapies and have been teaching qi kung and yoga therapy to my clients for many years. My current interests in yoga are to develop yoga therapy programs that integrate asana practice, research in fascia, and my knowledge of Chinese medicine and meditation practices.
