I'm a NY + NJ licensed acupuncturist, board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
Being sick during a 20-year stint in corporate finance led me to acupuncture.
I reversed incurable autoimmune conditions, gastro-intestinal issues, ulcers, seasonal/food allergies, mold exposures and chemical sensitivity. I also overcame post surgical pain, allergy and sensitivities to medication. All with acupuncture, life style changes, nutrition + life changing tools.
Interesting childhood + growing up Chinese predisposed me to choose differently. I chose conscious eating, acupuncture, herbal formula, cupping + moxabustion as part of daily living over the conventional protocol of life-long medication for the diagnosis rendered.
The added bonus of these changes was that, for the first time in 15 years, I walked through Central Park in the middle of Spring, breathing through my nose, my eyes clear, fully appreciating the scent of this urban forest, medication free.
Grateful + curious, I became a Doctor of Acupuncture at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine while a full-time corporate professional. The curriculum consisted of over 3,000 hours of training in Traditional Chinese Medicine with heavy emphasis on biosciences in biology, chemistry, pharmacology, ortho-neuro evaluation, anatomy, pathophysiology, gynecology, dermatology, and psychology.
