I have a M.S. in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA and I am a Certified Diplomate in Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I have done advanced training in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Shanghai University of TCM in Shanghai, China, where my concentration was in Internal Medicine and Gynecology. After graduation I completed a one-year clinical residency at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health. I am currently a Reiki Level 2 practitioner and I incorporate Reiki into my acupuncture treatments. In the spring of 2013, I also completed a course in Aroma Acupoint Therapy and have been employing that with my patients where applicable.
Prior to studying Traditional Chinese Medicine I received a B.S. in Chemistry with a second major in Biology from Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA.
I use only single use, sterile, surgical stainless steel, disposable needles.
