Acupuncture

Acupuncture can influence functioning on physical and psychological terrains simultaneously, and can be used not just for pain and discomfort, but to create shifts and possibilities on the deepest levels as well. I have studied many styles of Acupuncture, all over the world.

Acupuncture can influence functioning on physical and psychological terrains simultaneously, and can be used not just for pain and discomfort, but to create shifts and possibilities on the deepest levels as well.

My acupuncture practice is primarily Classical in its approach, and I connect strongly with the teachings from the Gathering of Blossoms of Acupuncture (Zhen Jiu Ju Ying), the Classic of Nourishing Life with Acupuncture and Moxibustion (Zhen Jiu Zi Sheng Jing) and the Grand Compendium of Acupuncture and Moxibustion (Zhenjiu Dacheng) and with Classically oriented acupuncturists that taught me such as Dr. Sean Marshall, Dr. Ye Debao, and Jeffrey Yuen.

While I’ve seen tremendous results from a classical approach, I have great respect for the modern practice of Acupuncture in China, as well as the vast amount of new research and techniques that have emerged. I was fortunate to study with Dr. Guoxiang Zhu. He practiced as a physician and acupuncture researcher at Hangzhou TCM Hospital from 1985 to 2001 and served as the Director of Acupuncture Department and Stroke Rehabilitation Center from 2001 to 2007. During my time in internship with Dr. Zhu, I treated a great many musculoskeletal and neurological conditions using numerous modern acupuncture techniques, some of which were developed by Dr. Zhu himself. One area of particular focus was lumbar spine issues and sciatica, which respond beautifully to modern electro-acupuncture techniques.

Acupuncture can be of help in nearly any condition, whether it is orthopedic, neurological, psychological, or as an adjunctive therapy to internal illness.
