Acupuncture is a centuries old healing art that utilizes sterile filiform needles to unblock and free the flow of the body's vital energy/Qi, (proununced "chee") to alleviate pain, promote the immune system, and enhance relaxation to support body, mind and spirit. It can treat a multitude of conditions ranging from acute to chronic by going to the very root of the imbalance. Most find the experience to be very relaxing and painless with only the slightest prick or surprise on insertion of the needle that quickly dissipates within minutes. For more information about what I treat and how acupuncture can help, please see my Areas of Expertise page.

It is best to have eaten within an hour before your treatment as those who do not can experience light-headedness. Please wear loose comfortable clothing that allows access up to the knees and elbows.

**I am not taking insurance at this time. I recommend contacting your insurer to see if you can be reimbursed.


News & Updates For 2022

In the Clinic: January 1, 2022


HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I am so exicted to announce that I will be open for business at my new location in Pacific Grove starting January 3rd 2022! I will be part of the Healing Collaborative located at 222 Forest Ave. in beautiful downtown Pacific Grove.  You can book your appointments online through this website by clicking the "Book an Appointment" then select your treatment option. I am still not in network with any insurance carrier so payments must be made at the time of treatment via credit card or cash only. No checks. If your insurance provider covers acupuncture, you may be able to be reimbursed for services. Please let me know at the beginning of your treatment if you are going to seek reimbursement. You will be emailed a "superbill" that you can submit to your carrier for such purposes.

**Prices will be increasing for services in the New Year. As reluctant as I have been to do this, I must keep up with the times. New prices are as follows:


Acupuncture: Initial appointment $150.00 

                       Return visit $100.00

Medical Qigong: $150.00

Herbal Consultations: $60 plus the cost of herbs


In the Pacific Grove clinic we continue to adhere to local, state and CDC recommendations in the clinic. The waiting room is open and available again. Masks are to be worn at all times without exception in the waiting room, even if you have received the vaccine.  Patients who have been fully vaccinated will now be welcome to remove their masks during treatments. I will continue to wear my mask in the clinic in an effort to make everyone feel safe. Sterilization and disinfecting protocols are still being strictly followed for the health and safety of all. I thank you all for your cooperation for the health and well-being of our community.

New Taijuquan classes at Sanctuary Climbing and Fitness in Seaside!!!


It was my honor to teach at Sweet Heat Hot Yoga in Monterey, however, times being what they are, I will look forward to the time when we are able to rejoin that wonderful community. Love you Sweet Heat! They still have wonderful yoga classes with amazing teachers available and you should definitely check them out!

I am so happy to announce that I will be returning to teach Taijiquan at Sanctuary Climing & Fitness in Seaside! It was so sad when we had to shut down in 2020 just as we were getting started. I am so excited to be back! The gym is incredible and I can't wait to see all of you there! Sanctuary is located at:

1760 Fremont Blvd #D2

Seaside, Ca 93955
