About My Practice: I have been leading a fitness and wellness lifestyle for close to two decades. I havean Associate of Science degree in Kinesiology and a Master of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Prior to studying Chinese Medicine, I have accumulated over seven years of experience in injury rehabilitation, postpartum rehabilitation, and fitness coaching. Later, while attending graduate school I have completed an extensive externship at UCSD hospital, and Moores Cancer Center, where I got to treat oncology and HIV/AIDS patients with complex orthopedic and physiological disorders. In my practice, I use acupuncture, massage, stretching and other modalities as needed to help manage pain and correct structural imbalances. I use my knowledge of anatomy, and kinesiology to analyze my patients posture and movement, then prescribe corrective exercises accordingly. When treating internal conditions such as digestive, gynecological, autoimmune, or even mental disorders, I believe in the power of nutrition and medicinal herbs and often see good results when using both.
About Me: I’m a true ocean lover with a passion for surfing. I enjoy traveling to exotic destinations for surfing and new cultural experiences. I love spending time outdoors with my family. Nowadays, I dedicate my spare time to swimming, biking, and running in preparation for triathlon season.

About My Practice: My approach to diagnosis combines modern musculoskeletal range of motion testing with traditional methods such as pulse taking and channel palpation.
