"Where there is free flow, there is no pain. Where there is pain, there is no free flow."   -  Chinese Medicine Proverb

Specializing in acupuncture for pain & injury, my goal is to help you heal injuries, decrease or eliminate pain, and get you back to the activities you enjoy.  Together, we can work to enhance sports performance, make you less prone to injury, and help you develop a strong, flexible, balanced body by providing you with the treatment and tools you need to tap in to your body's natural healing mechanism.

When we experience less pain, we quickly notice an improved quality of life, a more positive outlook, a better self image, improved relationships, and less overall stress.  All these things lead to greater happiness and satisfaction with our lives and optimal well-being.

As we collaborate to decrease and eliminate your pain or heal injury, I am here not only as your practitioner, but as your 'cheerleader' - to empower you, keep you accountable, and provide support to keep you moving in a positive direction.  Developing a new & different relationship with your internal and external environment will allow a shift to occur that brings the mind & body into a more productive 'healing mode'.  This will allow pain to dissolve and resolve out of the body more quickly, more completely, and more permanently.  The mind is an extremely powerful tool, so learning to use it to help us heal is an important and empowering part of enhancing and activating our innate healing mechanism.  

"The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well."  -  Hippocrates

I use acupuncture as well as adjunct therapies such as shiatsu, cupping, gua sha, e-stim, and moxibustion and also offer herbal therapy when it may be helpful or useful in your healing process. (Visit the 'Services & Pricing' page for more details)

In addition, I customize lifestyle and dietary recommendations and at-home self-care activities (stretching, strengthening, myofascial release) to assist you in accelerating your healing and helping to achieve long lasting treatment results.

As a health-care provider, I believe in open communication and creating a partnership with my patients.  I want you to be an active participant in your healing process and feel empowered in your journey of transformation and growth.  If this attitude toward healing sounds refreshing and exciting to you, then call to book an appointment today and experience what Balanced Function can help you accomplish.
