Philosophy

 

"Often, the road to recovery is about balancing our lives so that our external environments support our internal health."

 

I believe that every individual has the ability and power to heal.  My role is to give you the tools, resources, knowledge and support necessary for this process to occur. My approach to healing is holistic, patient-centered and based within an East Asian Medical framework. 

What does holistic really mean? It means understanding that someone’s chief complaint is a symptom related to an imbalance within the body system as a whole, and therefore must be treated by addressing the person as a whole. Our bodies are in direct relationship with the world around us. True health is about maintaining a delicate balance between ourselves and our environment. Life events, trauma, climate changes, food sources, diet, relationship dynamics and career/job challenges can have a significant impacts on our emotions and our health. This is a cause and effect relationship. Often, the road to recovery is about balancing our lives so that our external environments support our internal health. Every body is different and has a specific set of circumstances, making every course of treatment different. The path to healing takes a commitment to learning about oneself and the specific balance needed to find peace and ease within the world.  

Whether you are dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, infertility, OBGYN issues, fatigue, insomnia, addiction or looking for general wellbeing and spiritual growth, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine can help. For thousands of years, Chinese Medicine has had strong clinical results in restoring balance to the body, mind and spirit, addressing the root cause of disease and strengthening the body's natural ability to heal. This medicine is transformative and can do wonders where Western Medicine has failed. 

Seven Seas Acupuncture is located in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn N.Y.  I am happy to be part of the fabric of Brooklyn's thriving community. I believe that such a powerful medicine should be made accessible to all and I am honored to be able to make this possible. I have a strong commitment to maintaining diversity within my patient base and welcome all races, genders, sexualities, religions, spiritualities, cultures, professions, ages and body types. If you have the desire to heal, I will provide a judgement-free space in order for you to do that.

Given the right environment, support and resources, people have the power and ability to heal.
