Defining your purpose guides your intentions, methods and application.
This is my Why, How and What of acupuncture, the reason for why I do what I do.
- To assist people in alleviating their pain and discomfort, so that they may enjoy their lives without encumbrance. I want to educate people on how they can be an active participant in their health.
- By combining both traditional Chinese medicine and biomedicine and anatomy, I formulate treatment plans that are specific to my patient’s conditions.
- I use acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, tui na, to alleviate pain and restore balance. My goal isn’t to have a life long patient, it’s to assist a patient live a long healthy life.
