Class of 1998
I have a general practice using both acupuncture and herbs. In addition to my clinical work I translate articles and books from Chines into English. I have one published book, The "10 Key Formulas Families in Chinese Medicine," written by Dr. Huang Huang. Occasionally I lead trips to China to study with him as well.

Here in Missouri it is the rare person that has insurance that covers acupuncture, so I have a cash based practice. There is a sliding scale and discount for multiple treatments.
