I am a South Carolina licensed acupuncturist with a wonderful husband and three beautiful grown children. I've been working as a Registered Professional Nurse since 1980. As a Registered Nurse I've witnessed and felt helpless to the suffering of the patients I cared for. In 2013, a dear friend and fellow nurse introduced me to the possibility of relieving this suffering through Acupuncture and I became determined to learn a new method of helping my patients live a healthier life.
I pursued a Master of Science in Acupuncture with Tri-State College of Acupuncture in Manhatten, one of the oldest Acupuncture Schools in the United States.
I chose Tri-State for it's perfect blend of classical and modern styles. Students of Acupuncture are trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine which is also known as TCM, KM which is a gentle Japanese style known as KM or Kikko Matsumoto stle and Acupuncture Physical Medicine also known as APM which is a more modern Meridian based style of Acupuncture developed by the school founder, Mark Seem Ph.D. In this last syle, I was taught proficiency in the trigger point methods of Dr. Janet Travell which many refer to as dry needling or a method of releasing musculoskelatal trigger points.
I have been dedicated to patient care for over twenty five years and will dedicate myself to your care as I would my own family. Pain takes a terrible toll on a life and warrants the exploration of alternative and holistic methods of treatment.
