Hi there! Come on in and relax. You want to feel better; I want to help.
You understand that there is a connection between how you are living and how you are feeling. You want to go beyond just masking symptoms -- you want to understand their message so they don't come back. You want to work with someone who will see you as a whole person, who will listen to you and encourage you to make changes that line up with how you want to feel -- vital, energized, joyful. You want to live a life that feels deeply meaningful and in alignment with your deepest self. You've come to the right place.
Whether we're working together in my clinic, a workshop, or an online class, my goal is to empower you to live the most authentic, healthy life possible. Nothing brings me more joy than to watch this happen.
In eleven years of clinical practice, I have seen that the people who are are willing to move differently, breathe differently, eat differently, interpret life differently, and make time for self-care are the people who really end up feeling dramatically different: healthy, confident, joyful, and free.
So to me, teaching is healing. To help you on your path, I break down complex theories from the Chinese Medicine, yoga, and scientific traditions into digestible chunks for use in your daily life. I offer practical information, compassion, humor, encouragement, and tips on how to follow through.

Chinese Medicine is 3,000–year–old system of holistic health care that encompasses acupuncture, herbal medicine, diet therapy, massage techniques, and qigong. It works by guiding the body back to its natural state of balance.
Stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, back pain, arthritis, headaches, allergies, insomnia, PMS, infertility, menopausal symptoms, IBS, and digestive problems are just a few of the conditions it can treat. We view health as not merely the absence of disease, but living in accordance with who we truly are.
Acupuncture works by regulating the body's energy, or qi (“chee”). Qi needs to flow freely along its pathways in order to maintain good health. When qi gets stuck or depleted, you feel pain or get sick. An acupuncturist inserts hair–thin needles into specific points along the energy pathways in order to restore the proper flow of qi so the body can heal itself.

In Chinese Medicine, herbs are blended together to correct the underlying imbalance in the body as well as alleviating the symptoms. Life in Balance Acupuncture’s herbal pharmacy contains over 120 different herbs for making customized formulas to address your specific condition. A well–designed Chinese Herb formula can treat many different symptoms at once.

In Classical Chinese Medicine, there are “Three Treasures:” vitality, energy, and spirit. When all three are integrated, an individual can realize his/her full potential. An acupuncture point can be an opening to your deepest healing, a doorway to your the next stage of the evolution of your consciousness.
Qigong (pronounced “chee gung”) is the practice of cultivating your own energy by working with breath, intention, and movement. A form of moving meditation, qigong is a powerful tool for self-healing and relieving stress. Just as an acupuncturist uses needles to balance the qi of the different organ systems in the body, you can help keep your own qi flowing well and recharge yourself by practicing qigong regularly.
