    Acupuncture with Tuina (Acupressure) Session

    Acupuncture and massage are both awesome, especially together!  After inserting points based on your physiologic pattern, I will palpate your anatomy to determine what muscles need to be released. After releasing those muscles, I will utilize tuina, far-infrared, and/or moxibustion to the area.

  • Health Coaching

    Health coaching sessions are available virtually or in-person in Beacon, NY or Manhattan’s Financial District.

    Health coaching is a person-centered approach to helping people achieve a greater level of health and well-being.

    Making real, lasting lifestyle and behavior changes isn’t as easy as the flip of a switch. It takes ongoing effort and support. Health coaches blend the art and science of skillful communication, behavior change, and habit formation to form lasting changes.

    We do this by empowering people to discover their own wisdom and strength; by helping create their own solutions to problems; by supporting them without judgment; and by holding them accountable for their goals.
