Meeting the needs of the body, mind, and spirit
Whether you are looking to ease aches and pains, relieve stress and anxiety, or gain clarity of mind, Traditional Chinese Medicine has a treatment just for you. I have been in practice in the San Fernando Valley for twelve years. My specialties include pain syndromes, addiction, anxiety and depression, and learning disabilities/challenges.
If you are new to acupuncture, I look forward to introducing you to this amazing therapy. Don't worry, the needles are super-thin and painless. In fact, when the first needle is inserted, the majority of my new patients get a surprised look on their faces, and ask, "Is that it?"
Yep, that's it. Acupuncture can help to relieve pain and inflammation, enhance your immune system, help you sleep better, and give you an overall sense of well-being.
Commonly treated conditions include:
anxiety and depression
neck, shoulder, and back pain
arthritis and tendonitis
headache and migraine
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, hair-thin needles into various parts of the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine asserts that this process regulates the flow of energy, bringing balance back to the body. Modern research posits that acupuncture causes the body to release endorphins, and other chemicals/hormones that stimulate the body's immune system.
Cupping therapy involves applying cups to areas of the skin, usually the back, and applying suction to cause negative pressure. This helps to bring blood flow to the muscles, loosen soft tissues, and activate the lymphatic system. It is especially effective for neck, shoulder, and back pain, respiratory and digestive issues.
We offer online consultations for herbal medicines, and lifestyle recommendations based on Traditional Chinese Medicine for treating anxiety and depression, learning difficulties, and gastro-intestinal disorders.

We utilize a Japanese therapy called Shonishin which was designed for babies and children. Instead of needles, this technique utilizes small tools which are used to roll, scrape, or press on specific acupuncture points. It is especially effective for reducing hyperactivity, anxiety, and irritability, promoting sleep, boosting the immune system, and treating digestive disorders, bed wetting, and chronic colds.
In Chinese Medicine, herbal formulas are prescribed to treat a variety of conditions. We offer herbs in pill or powders that are prescribed and formulated for your specific symptoms. We specialize in Chinese herbal formulas for anxiety, depression, stress disorders, pain conditions, and GI disorders.
