"I have been an athlete all my life and became passionate about Alternative Medicine after having several overuse and training injuries in my college swimming career. Within months of starting collegiate athletics at Arizona State University my shoulders started showing signs of chronic pain. I ended up doing a round of steroid shots for bicep tendonitis and rotator cuff injury. I will never forget the day I received my first Cortisone shots in the back of both shoulders. It was so painful and as the tears ran down my face I thought over and over…
“There has to be another way.”
And so began my journey to find a better way to treat illness, injuries and imbalances of the body.
I also have two "Acu Babies" meaning I received acupuncture for optimal fertility as well as acupuncture during pregnancy.
Ella is 4 years old and Bodhi is 1 year old. Acupuncture helped balance my hormones and prepared my body for pregnancy. During the early months of morning sickness, acupuncture worked to reduce nausea, brain fog and gave me an energy boost. Postpartum acupuncture kept my mind at ease so I didn't get overwhelmed or stressed with everyday life and caring for a newborn."
