My interest in acupuncture and reiki grew from the pursuit of my own health, in a way that embraces the unique nature of each individual. I have found wellness to be a process, rather than a destination- and one with limitless possibilities. In sharing these tools, I hope to support others moving forward to find their own best direction.
