I secretly resisted Chinese Medicine for many years. As I moved through my career as a massage therapist, the calling to do more was always right there, which was Chinese Medicine; yet, I resisted. Later, I learned through my yoga practice that what you resist persists. So I surrendered and surrendered BIG! I packed up and moved to Hawaii to embark on a journey and immerse myself in the Art of Chinese Medicine. My journey took me around the world-SE Asia, India, Nepal-only to land in Asheville, NC. Pain management, sports acupuncture and working with athletes of all kinds has become an amazing part of my practice. Igniting the recovery process and improving performance so that success in a dedicated skill is what gives me the most joy.
