Why Come Here?


I have more than three decades of experience as an acupuncturist, treating a wide range of acute and chronic health problems.


A large majority of my patients experience significant to complete relief from their original health concern. In addition, because Chinese medicine treats the body as a whole system, many secondary symptoms improve at the same time.

Comprehensive treatment

I use a variety of treatment styles including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), five-phase Japanese treatment, and Tung-style/distal-point acupuncture treatment, depending on the needs of the patient.

Free consultation

An initial, complimentary, 15-minute phone or in-office consultation is available upon request, to help prospective patients decide if this office and traditional Asian medical treatment is right for them.

Patient education

I am happy to provide clear explanations of East Asian medical principles as well as suggestions for self-care that can enhance the effectiveness of the acupuncture treatment.

Friendly and welcoming environment

Patients are always treated with warmth and respect. I value making your treatment experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible!

Collaborative approach

I am happy to work with your other health care providers in order to provide an integrated approach to care.

Convenient location

The office is conveniently located near downtown Amherst, close to a bus stop and with plenty of free parking. See our contact page for directions.
