For one hour it’s all about you!
I treat differently than many practitioners. I treat only one patient at a time. You receive my one-on-one undivided attention.
Each treatment is specific to you and your condition. I treat one patient at a time for approximately one hour with one goal, to improve your health.
Some practitioners treat four patients per hour – you could be left alone for over 30 minutes of your entire treatment or handed off to an assistant.
You deserve a practitioner that remains with you, and uses what tools necessary to speed your recovery and improve your health. I remain with you to ensure the treatment is specific to your needs and that a positive change is occurring. I utilize acupuncture, massage, stretching, cupping, cranial-sacral and much more to create a unique, personalized and effective treatment.
I hold the designation of ‘Diplomate of Oriental Medicine’ from the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Fewer than 25% of my colleagues within a 100 mile radius of my Windermere office share this designation. Even fewer of those 25% of Acupuncture Practitioners are also Licensed Massage Therapists. I’ve differentiated myself from others by passing all national board exams: Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture Theory (required by law in FL), as well as Western Biomedicine and Chinese Herbology, thus giving me greater understanding of Western diseases and the effective use of herbal formulas.

More of my story.
Before becoming a massage therapist and an acupuncture physician …
I spent more than 20 years as a ballet dancer and performer on Broadway. Working as a dancer across those many years resulted in a wide range of injuries, both chronic and acute. I have experienced cortisone injections, knee surgeries, torn muscles, concussions, tendonitis, broken bones, high stress and extremes of fatigue and jubilation.
I may not be suffering from the same malady that you are suffering from today, but I can assure you that I understand how hard life can be when your body lets you down. Acupuncture helped me dance until I was forty, it has helped me and my family get through medical traumas and I believe that acupuncture can work magic. I hope you will let me try to work my magic with you.
