“My other great love and interest is psychology, and by using psychological therapies such as hypnosis, interactive guided imagery, and neurolinguistic programming in conjunction with traditional acupuncture, I strive to give my patients the best treatment possible. Studying these other modalities has given me an understanding about how the mind works, and how the emotional state of a patient plays a pivotal role in the evolution of disease. It is very gratifying to see when I treat people not only pain relief, but also personal and emotional changes in my patients.”
