Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and Shiatsu in the Heart of Kansas City.


Every body has a unique story:  an accumulation of genetics, life experiences, and environmental influences.  Your body will express the interplay of its own inner and outer story as it is unfolding from moment to moment.  And you have the power to influence its course by acknowledging its history and revealing its present complexity.

The silence of a story untold is what prevents it from changing, evolving, and transforming.

Your story is why I am here:  Exploring your story through the lens of acupuncture and Chinese medicine will open new possibilities for how to live in this imperfect human condition that we all inhabit and walk the world with each day.  It is one of the most powerful actions we can take to access the deep medicine with ourselves and to awaken the potential for ourselves and our worlds to be better.


Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are the question, the exploration, and the answer.

Chinese medicine views the body, mind, and spirit as a single entity, the physical and non-physical inextricably intertwined, influencing one another and being influenced by the environment around them.

Acupuncture is a tool unique in its ability to engage with all of these aspects simultaneously to initiate and sustain a profoundly restorative process.


Acupuncture is only one of the tools of this extraordinary medicine.

Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, cupping, moxibustion, bodywork, and martial arts are all spokes on this great wheel, each with their own role to play in keeping things turning smoothly.

My practice includes application of all these tools to the extent applicable for each person’s unique condition.
