Acupuncture is a time-tested method for restoring a healthy balance. It has been used in many parts of the world for thousands of years and has helped a countless number of people.

In the few decades since its introduction to the West, it has become one of the most proven and well-known forms of alternative therapy.  The World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health recognize that acupuncture is safe and effective for treating a wide range of health concerns.

I am excited to bring the benefits of this drug-free form of therapy to patients in the Kalamazoo area. I invite you to browse my website to learn more about health, healing, oriental medicine, acupuncture and the services I offer. My practice is housed at the Acupuncture Center of Southwest Michigan where I work collaboratively with other highly trained and talented practitioners.

I welcome any questions you might have. Please contact me here.


You may notice that the symbol I've chosen for my practice of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine is the lady slipper orchid

There is a legend among a Native American tribe that the lady slipper grows in the northern woods to mark the courage and strength of a small girl who lived there long ago - a girl who braved a snowstorm to get medicinal herbs when the villagers became ill.  She lost her moccasins and left anguished footprints along the path, which the following Spring became lined with flowers that came to be known as the moccasin flower; or lady slipper.  It is a sweet and enduring image of healing and compassion.
