The goal at East Gate Health is to help our clients by supporting their body's natural ability to regulate and heal. When this is accomplished, clients move forward into their lives, calmer, more centred, energized, and inspired.

About East Gate Health

In my practice, I look beyond diagnosis and symptoms to find the cause of an individual’s disease state. My priority is to identify the underlying imbalances that produced the symptoms. By identifying blocks in the body's ability to heal, and then by supporting the body to resolve its challenges, the individual can move back to health and the ability to self-regulate.

My practice is based on energy medicine. I integrate acupuncture with advances in auricular and bioenergetic medicine. Auricular medicine bridges acupuncture and classical Chinese medicine with principles of biotherapeutic drainage and detoxification.
