arthritisIn  this acupuncture & medical massage practice, I help  patients in their healing and recovery  from a multitude  of acute  & long  standing  bone & soft tissue injuries caused  by car accidents, on the job hazards, sports activities and  wear & tear usage of  the joints and myofascial  layers.  I use a variety of advanced clinical technology for muscular and connective tissue rehabilitation. 

Think of me as a body detective, investigating & palpating injured or fibrotic tissue, adhesions, inflammed or weakened joints and muscular compensations for clues, till I get to the root source of many tendomuscular challenges.
