Currently Teaching (2014-2015)
One of my primary interests is teaching, whether at Northwestern Health Sciences University or at the Acupuncture Health Center, my clinic in Edina. MN. I enjoy teaching students how to provide relief to patients through acupuncture and Chinese medicine, as well as educating patients on how to care for themselves. Through my caregiving and teaching, my goal is to help people overcome disease and live life to its fullest.
My main area of expertise is in the treatment of challenging medical cases and pain management, and I have established a significant referral practice in post-stroke acupuncture therapy. I am energized by and dedicated to the progress of my patients, and to aiding my students in becoming competent, compassionate, and skilled practitioners. I emphasize the qualities of aptitude and ability but also of caring and kindness. I believe that one must have not just good hands but also a good heart to be a great doctor.
