What inspired you to start this business?
My own healing journey with misdiagnosed endometriosis ignited my passion for acupuncture. Despite maintaining an active lifestyle and adopting a mindful approach to nutrition, I faced debilitating pain for over 17 years. It was through a life-changing encounter with a skilled acupuncturist that I finally found the relief. Through a comprehensive exploration of nutrition, lifestyle choices, sleep patterns, and relationships, we were able to uncover the root cause of my symptoms. This firsthand experience revealed the transformative power of acupuncture, sound nutrition, and lifestyle habits in reversing disease and fostering genuine healing. Today, I am dedicated to sharing this knowledge with others, empowering them on their paths to wellness.
What keeps you going every day?
I have a deep passion for my work! There's no more significant blessing than being involved in someone's path to healing. Whether it's assisting a couple in their journey to conceive, guiding through labor, repositioning a breech baby, or simply aiding a mother in experiencing her utmost well-being.
What is your favorite part about your business?
I am consistently humbled and incredibly grateful for the trust patients place in me for their care. Many individuals arrive at our practice in a state of discomfort, seeking assistance for unresolved concerns and a sense of unwellness. I thoroughly enjoy dedicating time to my patients and understanding their unique experiences.
What makes your business unique?
I blend the best of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Functional Medicine and customize treatments according to a patient's signs and symptoms. We also offer a variety of services and have several other practitioners on staff including another acupuncturist who specializes in tuning fork therapy and sound and a functional medicine health coach to help motivate and inspire our patients along the way.
What is the best compliment you have received about your business?
I love hearing about the small and big wins. Over the past 22 years, we have received so many lovely compliments and beautiful reviews.
