About Karen

I am honored to treat my patients with holistic medicine, and offer a caring and peaceful environment for healing to take place.
Often things we are doing in our lifestyle are preventing the healing from happening. I always believed that health and getting back to health should be more simple endeavors , and often had more to do with getting the body back into the proper balance.   
Acupuncture is a perfect complement to your current medical treatments and can help you bounce back faster from injuries and without painkillers. 



What drew me to pursue the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture?  I have arrived to this place in my life, being a licensed acupuncturist, after many years in biomedicine. I have been an educator of medical students and other health profession students for many years as well as being involved in biomedical research. I was dissatisfied with the increasing use of medications that chased the symptoms of the disease and not the root, and these medications often brought more problems than the disease they were treating.

Through my anatomical and biomedical studies I had witnessed the amazing healing power of the body…it is a self-healing miraculous living machine. Personally, I had suffered with sporadic sciatica and sacroiliac issues for many years that had no real “organic” problem that imaging or testing could find. Going through acupuncture treatments worked for me to eliminate the pain and to understand the root of my problems. I had to find out what this was all about! So I began the journey to seek the answers to the many questions I had for so many years. I have to tools now to help others find relief.
