Licensed, Board-Certified Acupuncturist
Japanese-style acupuncture with an emphasis on finding the perfect treatment for you.
Incorporating traditional Chinese & Japanese acupuncture, moxibustion,
and nutrition therapy, my focus is on wholeness of the mind, body, and spirit for complete health.
Originally from New Mexico, I grew up in a holistically-minded family who used homeopathy and chiropractic medicine for most common ailments.
This life-long belief in holistic medicine led me to study at New York College of Health Professions in Manhattan and Long Island. I am licensed by the state of NY, and am accredited by the NCCAOM.
Inspired by Master Acupuncturist Kiiko Matsumoto, my focus is on treating what’s at the core of your symptoms and why your body isn’t healing itself efficiently. Constitutional (or root) treatments accompany symptomatic (or branch) treatments, to help you feel and stay better. Rather than selecting a combination of points that should, in theory, help, I carefully examine points and makes sure they are the appropriate ones for you.
My dream was to create my own practice, which I've done in my home in Lynbrook; this means you come into contact with me, no one else. Temperature and oxygen level checks, disinfection of high-contact surfaces between patients, in-room HEPA air filter, mask use, and sanitizer stations ensure your safety. My treatment room is comfortable, clean, quiet, and inspires calm.
