My years of practice have given me a love and obsession for solving the riddles of aches and pains. To this end I utilize acupuncture, all levels of pressure from gentle, rhythmic lymphatic drainage to deep, slow myofascial work. Each issue is addressed with fresh eyes and no two treatments are ever the same.




Acupuncture is an ancient practice still in common use today because it is effective, efficient, and practical. I incorporate acupuncture and Chinese Medicine principles with various types of massage, lymphatic drainage, microcurrent, cavitation, radiofrequency, cupping, guasha, vibration, therapeutic LED lights, a keen sense of physiology and a little magic.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

The lymph system works with the circulatory systems to cleanse every cell in the body. An out of balance lymphatic system will lead to swelling, puffiness, and heaviness in the joints. Chronic congestion, water retention, or post operative swelling greatly benefit from lymphatic drainage. Manual Lymphatic Drainage gently encourages decongestion and detoxification.

Fix It!

Injury relief massage is my favorite! Injury can be the result of a traumatic accident, surgery, or the accumulation of the demands we place on our body each day. The bodywork consists of stretching, microcurrent therapy, and myofascial release as we restore the body to an optimal state.

Post Surgical & Scar Resolution

I use the best of Western and Eastern tools: Manual Lymphatic Drainage, microcurrent, cavitation, radiofrequency, cupping, guasha, and myofascial techniques. I specialize in the specific care required after cosmetic body procedures like liposuction, BBL, and tummy tucks.


Also known as fibroblast plasma, Fibroplasty refers to the skin restoration process of this technology, tightening skin and smoothing out lines by building collagen. I use a pure plasma device, not electrical. This reduces the risk of scarring and hyperpigmentation. Fibroplasty is safe to use on a wider variety of skin tones than typical fibroblast pens.

Facial Restoration

Release body and face with this all-inclusive treatment. Myofascial release of face, neck, shoulders, and abdomen. Deep intraoral massage to sculpt the face and increase circulation, lymphatic drainage to decrease puffiness and water weight. Cosmetic facial acupuncture and Celluma LED light for brightening and clarifying the skin.
