Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I am a firm believer and practitioner in ancient tradition of Five Elements Acupuncture. Five Element Acupuncture is a time-honoured medicine that uses the principles of nature to bring the body, mind, and spirit into balance. Each person has a unique constitution of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, or Wood. By restoring balance to the elements within, we create harmony and health. Five Element Acupuncture restores balance by treating the root causes of disease, not just the symptoms. My role is to listen as deeply as i can to what the spirit is asking for.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
The vast experience has allowed me to treat various conditions I mentioned earlier. My experience with Wasser Pain Management has allowed me to treat patients with chronic pain and arthritis. I've been practicing and developed special expertise in weight loss and smoking cessation.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I have been clinically practicing TCM and Chinese acupuncture for over 30 years and have had my share of proud moments. I feel most satisfied when I see a patient walk out of my clinic a balanced person, having got rid of his / her suffering and a smile on the face,
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
Overall, I treat cases for a variety of ailments including conditions such as arthritis, anxiety, depression, weight loss, infertility, sleep disorders, menstrual and menopausal disorders, digestive illnesses, sport and car accident injuries, lower immune function and many others. I have seen them all in my 30 years of practice I guess! 🙂 Each case is unique and challenging in its own way.
