I drove a UPS truck in Washington, DC for years when I developed severe back pain. I could not play sports any more, work was miserable, and I was in constant pain. It was recommended to me to go see a chiropractor and he “got my life back”, that’s when I decided that I would become a chiropractor. I wanted to help others who were in pain like me to get their life back so I enrolled in Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward 
After graduating from Life West in 1998, I went into private practice in the Mission District in San Francisco and in 2005 I realized my dream of opening my own pain relief center. I not only look at your symptoms, but what is causing them. 
As an athlete my whole life (triathalons, basketball, football, rugby, baseball, swimming, and track to name a few), I am naturally experienced in athletic injuries such as those to the ankle and shoulder.

After ACL reconstructive surgery, I realized my original plan to study kinesiology was no longer my path. I sustained the injury in a martial arts competition and after surgery I was determined to return to training as fast as possible. Traditional Chinese Medicine not only decreased my recovery time, but it also improved my emotional state and helped me think positive.

Post-recovery I studied abroad at Peking University for a year to learn Mandarin Chinese and in 2011 I graduated from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM). I am also a national Diplomate of Oriental Medicine and a United States Wushu Team member.

In addition to acupuncture, Tuina massage, cupping, and herbal medicine, I like to apply my experience as an athlete by utilizing stretches, strengthening exercises, nutrition, and Acu-taping. Let's get your life back!
