Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine on Kauai, Hawaii. Specializing in dermatology, pain and women's health.
Are you troubled by eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea or fungal/bacterial infections? Traditional Chinese herbal medicine has been successfully treating these types of dermatological conditions for a very long time. Chinese herbal medicine treatment focuses both on curing the underlying pattern of disharmony associated with each individual’s skin problems as well as alleviating any itching, pain or dryness.
After earning my masters in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine in 2008, I have been enthusiastically studying the different treatment methods that cure skin problems. Motivated by the shortcomings of Western Medicine little long term solutions for most chronic skin conditions and my early successes in treating chronic eczema and acne. In October 2014 I began studying with a master in the field of Chinese Medicine Dermatology. Studying with Dr. Mazin Al-Khafaji, owner and head doctor at the Avicenna Centre for Chinese Medicine in London, took my training and competence in the treatment of skin conditions to the next level. I am happy to announce that I will be completing his one year postgraduate diploma course in 2018. I am inspired and skilled at resolving most skin conditions.

Do you have an autoimmune disease and are not satisfied with the options provided. Are you suffering and don't know what to do next? It is a deep passion of mine to help people out of the rut of autoimmune disease. I know how limited the pharmaceutical help can be and I have seen proven time and time again the power of Chinese Medicine to both bring Autoimmune disease into remission as well as drastically improve the quality of life of those inflicted. Beyond my Master's level training in Chinese medicine which included extensive coursework and practical experience in effectively treating autoimmune diseases I have read and digested most every book available in English on the subject. I am confidant and inspired to walk the path with you so that you can reclaim your health.
Infertility, PMS, menopause, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, cervical dysplasia, PCOS, morning sickness, breech position, late term pregnancy, fibroids...
These and more are disharmonies that Chinese medicine is super great at treating. In China there are always Chinese medicine doctors alongside Western medicine doctors in the gynecology departments of hospitals and clinics because the efficacy of Chinese medicine treatment for curing women's health concerns is common knowledge. Beyond my Master's level training in Acupuncture, in which I did extensive training in treating gynecological disorders effectively, I completed a 1.5 year internship with a Master Chinese gynecology Doctor in Seattle, Dr. Kerong Xie. Under her tutelage I learned the 'ins and outs' of masterfully treating all types of women's issues. Thanks to Dr. Xie, and even further extensive self study, I confidently and effectively treat infertility as well as most other gynecological disorders.
Chronic and Acute Pain
Pain management is the Acupuncture 101 of Acupuncture study. It is the first thing we are taught and the symptom I most often treat. Whether you have an ankle that has been bothering you for years, a back that just went out or headaches that come and go Acupuncture can help. Acupuncture will make chronic arthritis bearable again, stubborn knee pain disappear and turn carpel tunnel into a distant memory. Come see me and I will make getting rid of pain simple and easy.
Other issues I love helping with:
Many don't realize the scope of both the practice and training of a Chinese medicine practitioner like myself. The scope of treatable disharmonies is all encompassing. There are many other disharmonies and illnesses too numerous to name 'one by one' that I excel at helping with. From generalized complaints like fatigue to more focalized problems like asthma. For example, any issue with immune function like allergies or with digestive function like chronic constipation, diarrhea or acid reflux are easy for me to help you with. Preventing, treating and "cleaning up the mess" from colds and flu's are in my everyday repertoire. Stubborn sinus or lung infections respond well to Chinese medicine, most often without the last resort of antibiotics. Furthermore, infections like staph and candida are easily mended with Chinese medicine. And I have literally hundreds of insomnia treatments at my fingertips. Finally, skin disorders like excema, psoriasis and dermatitis with time respond exceptionally well.
