The mission of my practice and this website:

  1. Redefine health. We believe that being healthy is the responsibility of the individual, and this is something that entails taking care of your physical as well as emotional well-being. A medical professional is not there to fix you but rather to guide you on how to achieve the best quality of life.
  2. We are here to inform you on the latest research in the healthcare field and educate on healthy practices.
  3. To inform that there are options in terms of medical modalities to manage health conditions. 
  4. To inform medical professionals about acupuncture and its benefits, and how we can work together to provide the best care possible to our patients.
