“As a Chinese medicine practitioner, I help people get stronger not only by treating symptoms but also by addressing the underlying causes of their ailments so they can be truly healthy again and thrive. I use acupuncture and Chinese herbs alongside clinical nutrition with whole-food based supplements to support people. I have especially loved helping people with chronic pain, anxiety, and fatigue and have successfully helped many people withdraw from opioids while treating in the Bay Area of San Francisco. With our country’s epidemic health problems, I find it more crucial than ever before to educate and share holistic health care with people seeking relief.”
