Everywhere I go, I find myself practicing Chinese medicine on people. I've treated people on the sidewalk in Hayward, on a cafe patio in Topanga Canyon, and at the airport while waiting for a delayed flight. That's why I call my clinic Anywhere. Every session I offer is tailored to your needs, & may include: acupuncture, moxibustion, kinesiotaping, reflexology, chakra balancing, fire cupping, Chinese herbs, lifestyle tips and dietary advice. I am currently commuting monthly to Portland for a clinical doctorate degree, but still seeing patients (everywhere I go).
