Chinese Medicine

Welcome to HealingWisdom Medicine. Where healing is about the art of living.

Pain, illness, and the stresses of life circumstances can be severe barriers to living well, directly and indirectly. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine treatments are designed to create and maintain health, and were considered preventive medicine in their inception. Remarkably effective, Acupuncture is commonly practiced side by side with Western Medicine and has evolved into an incredible analgesic first aid technique that can bring incredible relief from pain. However, Classical Chinese Medicine acts as more than just a temporary analgesic, excelling at diagnosing and treating the root cause of imbalances that manifest as painful symptoms, disease, and emotional distress. In this way, physical and emotional pain can be effectively alleviated and resolved, leading to long term wellness.

Classical Chinese Medicine is comprised of a complex system of examination, diagnosis, and treatment. It is the longest existing continuous medical system practiced in the world, informed by more than 5,000 years of observations of the human body, mind, and spirit. The modality views the body as an energetic system in dynamic transition between balance and imbalance. The driving force is Qi, which can be translated as energy or life force. Balance is maintained, and thus disease treated and prevented, as Qi flows in a regular pattern through a system of channels — or meridians — to all parts of the body.

As the Founder, I am deeply committed to my patients and the practice of this HealingWisdom Medicine, which recognizes and cultivates the human potential to create health, and sustain it.  I practice the traditional healing relationship; in their own respective roles the practitioner and patient practice seeing the entire human being in bodymindspirit, recognizing the process of health and illness, and the path to restoration of lost health. Through various modalities - namely Acupuncture (utilizing all channel systems: primary, the eight extraordinary, luo, sinew, and the divergent) and Chinese Herbal Medicine, as well as nutritional therapy, and counseling - the development of self awareness contributes to the physiology of healing and the patient's ability to move beyond the management of symptoms to sustainable health.
