Japanese meridian therapy, hospice care, shiatsu
I’m an acupuncturist based in Olympia WA, offering individualized health support with acupuncture and Eastern medicine.
After working in healthcare for many years as a massage therapist I completed the Masters program at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2016, with a focus in Japanese acupuncture and orthopedic approaches to pain. I trained in Japanese acupuncture with Takahiro Funamizu and Tracy Thorne.
My treatment styles range in intensity depending on the needs of the patient. In a given treatment I may use very gentle or non-inserting needles, essential oils, shiatsu, cupping, gua sha, trigger point acupuncture, or Chinese herbal prescriptions.
In addition to clinical practice I teach continuing education workshops, blog about Chinese medicine, and write for acupuncture trade publications. I also provide acupuncture and advocacy for hospice care, a type of work that is close to my heart.
