Acupuncture consists of primarily inserting sterile, single-use, filiform needles into the body at specific points to affect the regulation of the body’s resources.
Moxibustion is burning finely ground mugwort on or near the body to warm an area or points. Again, this is done with safety in mind and with constant communication conveying the patients need.
I studied acupuncture at Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia) in a three-year intensive acupuncture program. I continue to study acupuncture with exceptional teachers regularly. I practice from a perspective of Worsley 5 Elements as well as Eight Principle. These are two different lenses to look at the nature and function of both you and your body. These lenses are entirely complementary to each other and can be used as multiple levels of finding ways to serve you. Treatments are gentle and address the cause, as well as symptoms.

For those who are afraid of needles or sensitive to treatment, I spend a great deal of focus on techniques in painless insertion or finding other ways to achieve treatment goals.
Currently in the process of relocating my practice to Afton, Wyoming.
