I am grateful for the poor health I experienced in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It was my personal success using Chinese medicine that changed my life trajectory from being a certified professional accountant (CPA) to changing careers, going back to school and eventually opening my practice in the year 2000 as a Dr. TCM.
I love energy medicine. And I do not mean it in the new age kind of way. I have gravitated to laser therapy (photobiomodulation) because it literally emits light energy in the form of photons into the cells to initiate the body’s innate healing processes
I have peace of mind in clinic knowing I can draw upon the many skills and modalities I have acquired over the years and always have the principles of Chinese medicine to guide me in using the different modalities. I do not see it as my responsibility to fix the individual. My role to is to help the individual (mind body soul) regain their ability to self-regulate and to educate them how to support their body’s innate ability to heal. I do this by using safe and non-invasive approaches like diet, lifestyle coaching, acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Gua Sha, laser (LLLT) supplements, hypnosis and EFT in my practice.
I love to learn. Currently I am passionate about learning and developing methods of using laser therapy as part of an integrative approach for pain, infertility and treating symptoms associated with endometriosis and auto-immune diseases.
When I am not treating patients at Acubalance in Vancouver I can be found moderating continuing educational courses online through Healthy Seminars. I have started a collection of laser resources by experts in the filed made available through Healthy Seminars for practitioners who, like me, want to deepen their knowledge in the area of LLLT/ photobiomodulation.
