“The primary goal of my gentle acupuncture treatments is to address and resolve the presenting problem and facilitate deep healing of the body. Secondarily, I believe in helping my clients discover the mind-body-spirit connection of any dis-ease in the body if they are interested and willing to explore the root causes of illness, injury or health conditions. This holistic approach often unhooks the problem from the body and speeds recovery.” LM
‘What is special about my treatment sessions is my compassionate listening, extensive time one on one with patients and a whole body wellness perspective. I am an intuitive practitioner, and I have been told that I am easy to talk to. People feel heard when they are around me.’
