Where have you trained (ie school but also any time in china? any special internships or experience with an influential??mentor?)
I am graduate of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York with a Masters Degree in traditional Oriental Medicine as well as a Bachelors of Professional Studies.?? Afterwards I obtained my license as a New York State acupuncturist.?? I also studied at American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco.?? Previously I graduated from New York College of Health Professions where I subsequently received my New York State massage therapy license.
Besides acupuncture and massage therapy, I am currently studying to be certified as a craniosacral therapist via the Upledger Institute.
Do you have a specialty or favorite thing to treat?
The beauty of Chinese medicine is that it treats the entire person as a whole. There is not one specific complaint I enjoy treating because I enjoy helping the patient return to an equilibrium of well being (being well!).?? Every patient is unique in their own right and I honor that. I honor who they are and remove the label of dis-ease they came with to help them re-balance and feel better.
What???s your favorite service offered at City Acupuncture and why?
I am really happy to be part of the insurance department of CANY.?? I think its a great service to be offered to people who work hard and pay a great deal for their insurance coverage.?? I am happy that this opportunity exists to provide treatment to the hard workers of New york City.
Any tips for making the most of a visit to City Acupuncture?

How do you use acupuncture in your personal life?Acupuncture is just one of the many branches of Chinese medicine.????I have included all aspects in my life from meditation, qigong exercise, diet, and herbal therapy.??
