I battled chronic migraines starting at age 17.  After college, they took over my life.  As a skeptical physicist, I did not explore any “alternative” methods until I ran out of medical options.  My hard working doctors tried every medication and experimental treatment possible without success.  I had given up hope until my first acupuncture treatment.  It changed my life.

The approach was unlike anything I had experienced.  My acupuncturist took the time to understand all of the physical, emotional, and lifestyle factors contributing to my migraines.  He used acupuncture and healing touch to draw the headache out.  A weight was lifted.  It was amazing. The physicist in me wanted to understand the energetic nature of the qi flow I felt.  I wanted to learn everything about the nature of health.  It was both a personal necessity of finding a pain free, happy life as well as a passion to be shared with others.  Thus began a life long study.
This quest has taken me around the world.  First, I completed the masters program at Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA. The program ended in Shanghai, China where I observed doctors in hospitals who were fully educated as medical doctors as well as Chinese medicine.

For 5 months after that, I traveled throughout Southeast Asia discussing medical systems with people from around the world.  Every culture has a unique approach to health.  We are so lucky to have access to finest insights of medical science as well as sacred teachings of ancient cultures. Finally, I moved back to Seattle and opened Health Discovery Acupuncture clinic.  Now I have the pleasure of utilizing what I have learned, while continuously gaining new insights, to help others optimize their health.
