Each person has a spiritual, social, mental, emotional, intellectual, and physical self; each aspect needing to be nurtured and developed, within a harmonized relationship with the others. When one part is compromised, it affects the whole. This is why heart disease is often associated with stress, or why many mood disorders are often linked to the gut and digestion. Through engaging all aspects of one’s self, I work to address what might seem like unconnected symptoms and concerns.
I’m inspired by the origin of the word doctor, which comes from the Latin word docere, meaning to teach. I aim to translate complex medical and Chinese medicine terms into simple language so that the client has a better understanding of what’s really going on with their body. I feel that if people carry this knowledge with them, they will have the tools to make choices that can have long lasting impacts on their health. I want people to be empowered as active participants on their healing paths, and I want them to build confidence in their own healing abilities.
