I am a licensed Acupuncturist in the state of Connecticut and a member of the Connecticut Society of Acupuncturists and the American Society of Acupuncturists. I graduated with a Masters in Acupuncture from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Science University. I grew up in a family of doctors dedicated to their profession and diligent in their mission to save the lives of their patients. Living in witness to their inexhaustible commitment to reunite their patients with their loved ones inspired me to also pursue a career in healthcare when I moved to the United States in 2007. In spite of the many barriers and hurdles in my way, including the fact that I spoke very little English and had to work multiple jobs to make ends meet, I made the choice to follow my family’s legacy and contribute to the health and wellbeing of my new community. Reflecting back on my many early challenges as an immigrant woman and young mother in this country, I am humbled and grateful for my willpower and resilience in staying committed to the often difficult path of becoming a healthcare professional. The choice to focus on acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as my profession stemmed from my personal experiences with these modalities back in 2016. I turned to these supports to address years of anxiety and was amazed to experience first hand the rapid relief and whole-system healing that comes with these treatment protocols. This led to my eventual enrollment in a master’s program in 2018 at the New England School of Acupuncture at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Science. In my practice, my focus is on providing patients with thorough, individualized, and comprehensive care, treating a variety of specific conditions and symptoms. In addition, TCM has a strong focus on the prevention of illnesses and is beneficial in the maintenance of good health despite the many demands and challenges of a busy lifestyle. I have been working with a wide range of individuals including athletes, geriatrics, veterans, children and community members of all ages. I believe in working with patients to give them comfort, hope, and empowerment by using TCM to discover and treat the root of their symptoms. I am dedicated to going above and beyond to help patients achieve the quality of life that they desire.
