       We offer a preventive health maintenance program as well as treatment for acute and chronic conditions.   While I treat most conditions, I see a great many people for pain management, GERD, diabetes, anxiety and allergies.   Services are provided in a private setting. I am skilled in Chinese, Japanese, Korean needling techniques and moxibustion. I will adjust needling techniques based on your ability to tolerate certain methods.  I have been formally trained in Japanese Okazaki therapy.   Diet, nutrition and exercise are all part of the discussion when appropriate. Appointments are on the hour.  Plan on 45 minutes for the visit.

 Remember....All diseases are rooted in the Shen-Spirit.  My text "Esoteric Kodenkan" is available at



  I have been a student of Judo for five decades.  It was this sport/art form that introduced me to Asian Medicine. I am ranked Shichidan (7th degree Black Belt) in Kodenkan Judo and awarded the internationally recognized title of Professor.   I am also recorded in the Martial Art Hall of Fame for my work in preserving this ancient art form.  This ranking and education positions me well to assist with athletic or mechanical injuries utilizing arts known as Tuina (Chinese Medicine) and Seifukujutsu (Japanese Medicine).  I bring this great history of ancient healing arts to my practice.

Pictured is a Japanese, spruce wood, carving of Tengu. Tengu, half man/half bird, creature is found in Japanese mythology.  He had super natural healing talents and extraordinary martial art skills. He was able to transform and travel great distances in a moment.  His fan (tessen) was used to create wind storms.  His sword remains hidden.


This mischievous supernatural being was known for playing tricks on greedy and arrogant individuals.
