Heather was first introduced to acupuncture when she was the office manager of a pain clinic in Boise. She knew that she wanted to be a healthcare provider and provide relief to those in need, but she wanted a set of tools that was greatly different than what an MD can offer.
She found her way to Portland, Oregon to study acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine and later studied in an international acupuncture training program in Nanjing, China; and that was the beginning of something great. Heather has learned over the years to “walk the talk” by making a great number of small changes in diet and lifestyle to benefit her own health and make the most of her vitality. Heather has also managed to overcome panic attacks and anxiety through the wisdom and benefits of Chinese Medicine and acupuncture.
Heather has completed advanced studies in sports medicine / orthopedic acupuncture. She has also studied extensively in the field of infertility and women’s health. The focus of Heather’s practice is first and foremost stress management, prevention of illness, and general wellness. She commonly works with pain, infertility, anxiety, and digestive disorders as well.
