I became interested in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine after witnessing first-hand the amazing changes it can make in the body. When I was a teenager, my father was diagnosed with the Epstein-Barr Virus. For eight years he visited doctors, took the prescribed medications, and suffered from the many side effects, with no real improvement. A friend referred him to an acupuncturist in Las Vegas, and, after only a few treatments and the use of a prescribed herbal formula, he was free of the virus! This experience changed his life dramatically. Not only did he have more energy than he had before the virus, but he was able to function more effectively at his work and enjoy his family and his hobbies more as well. Watching my dad go through this experience and then seeing how the body can be healed through more holistic methods, without the side effects, sparked my interest in becoming a healer myself.
I attended the Utah College of Massage Therapy in Lindon, Utah and graduated in December 1998. I then went on to attend the Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I graduated with honors in July of 2003. I have owned and operated Lotus Spring Acupuncture and Wellness, Inc. since 2006.
I have enjoyed treating my family and friends and seeing the results that come from allowing the body to heal itself through alternative medicine. My goal is to help the community improve their health through patient education, acupuncture and oriental medicine, as well as other alternative treatments.
