General practice
I first became interested in shiatsu and Chinese medicine in the early 90s when an injury I had didn't respond to conventional Western medicine. I was living in Japan at the time, so while there I studied shiatsu, Japanese acupressure massage, with a Master practitioner.
In 2000, I returned to the US to study acupuncture and Chinese medicine and received my Master's in Oriental Medicine (M.A.O.M) from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.
Currently, I live in the Montavilla neighborhood with my husband, a blacksmith who owns Bridgetown Forge, and my daughter, dog and cat. Fall of 2015 marks the 8th year of owning/practicing at MCA.
