Facilitate each other toward freedom; freedom from oppression, and freedom to live in a state of empowerment.
I apply an integrative and holistic perspective to medicine.
Acupuncture in the US is an interpretation of the Western biomedical framework to which Asian allopathic methods are applied. I interpret symptoms mapped on the body through a scientific and Taoist energetic lens, treating the body as a whole system whereby physical and psycho-emotional illness can be treated simultaneously.
Illness reflects the stresses we experience as we transition through various walks of life. Disease and pain stem from personal, psycho-emotional, environmental, and socio-cultural planes.
In order to help you, I listen deeply to your experience, to consider the planes of influence, investigate the path of the disease, and locate the root of your pain.
I have an eclectic background in Film, Public Health, Activism, and Anthropology. Through each disciplinary exploration, I developed new ways to work on behalf of the underserved. Diversity and inclusion are integral values that guide my work.
Currently, I'm creating a film on healing from systemic oppression as a Doctoral candidate at AIMC Berkeley. To learn more and support the project, read the Freedom Crow blog and follow me on social media.
