I was introduced to acupuncture through my personal healing experience. I received acupuncture for pain in my feet, and after my treatment I walked away with so much more than pain relief. I felt a tremendous sense of well being and inner peace. I was amazed and intrigued by the experience and needed to know more. The next thing I knew I was in acupuncture school.
I earned a Masters Degree in Acupuncture form the Tai Sophia Institute for the Healing Arts(www.tai.edu) and I also earned the status of Diplomate of Acupuncture from the National Commission for Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). I am also a certified Acupuncture Detox Specialist through the National Acupuncture Detox Association. Acudetox benefits people in the process of recovery from all forms of drug addiction and alcoholism, as well as some mental disorders.
