In 2004 I received a Masters Degree in Science & Traditional Oriental medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, NYC. I am board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
Post-graduate studies included assisting my mentors, Frank Butler and Tom Bisio, in their respective acupuncture practices in musculoskeletal conditions and traumatic injuries. Additional studies included the full curriculum at Zheng Gu Tui Na including: Zheng Gu Tui Na massage, mobilization techniques, orthopedic acupuncture, trauma medicine & Qi Gong for rehabilitation and injury prevention. I have been certified by Sloan Kettering Hospital in NYC for acupuncture as a complimentary therapy for cancer patients. Currently, I am in a course of study with Gary B. Strauss, MS, RPP, PWE who is a Master Practitioner of Polarity Therapy and CranioSacral Unwinding.
