Learn about Marie’s approach to Anxiety and ADHD

Have you been putting up with depression or anxiety because taking a pharmaceutical doesn’t feel like the right option for you?

Perhaps being able to function effectively and dynamically at work are primary concerns for you. You work hard, expect much of yourself, catch up on rest when you can, but you could use support to keep energy and focus up and feelings of stress down in your busy career.

For some, having the courage to be yourself and the strength to take care of yourself in all of your relationships is your ultimate goal. You’re looking for the experience of feeling grounded and clear-headed in your life.

Whether you are feeling irritable about being overworked, you are overwhelmed by a life event; or you are dealing with severe depression, anxiety or panic attacks, acupuncture and herbal medicine can help you.

Marie is such a wonderful person!  She made me feel completely at ease and we talked for quite a bit of time before actually starting the treatment.  She’s really interested in getting to the “heart” of the matter, both physical and mental pain, which I truly appreciate.  She makes you feel like we’re both in this together, and that with subtle daily changes, problems will fade.

Our emotional experience can be affected by many things including:  trauma, life events, lifestyle and diet. While your emotional symptoms are important in coming up with a Chinese Medical diagnosis, so is information about all your body systems and your lifestyle. This allows me to diagnose and treat each person as an individual – mind, body and spirit.  There is no one-size-fits-all solution to your health goals.

Dealing with body pain can further tax emotions when it keeps you from doing the things you love to do. Whether it’s using your hands to knit or make jewelry, commuting to work on your bicycle or going hiking at Mt. Tam on the weekend, these are things we rely on to stay fit, get around, reduce stress and keep emotions balanced. Whether you are dealing with an acute or chronic situation I can help you find relief and get back to the activities that feed your soul and keep you sane.

The techniques that I use to treat pain are gentle and effective. In fact, I find great success implementing the Tan Balance Method. This approach to acupuncture allows me to treat pain far away from the area of injury. Other techniques that I use to treat pain include:  local acupuncture (when applicable), auricular acupuncture, herbal formulas targeted at pain in specific body areas, lifestyle and nutrition therapy and supplementation therapy.

Got great results for my knee problem.  Marie knows her stuff and is very patient in explaining how things work.  Her gentle manner helped me stay on track.  Combined with her treatments my health very much improved in a reasonable time.  I would definitely go back to see her and recommend her to my friends.

In addition to acupuncture, I prescribe individualized herbal formulas to decrease symptoms, improve body function, treat the underlying issues and lessen the impact of emotional complaints. I also incorporate qigong prescriptive exercises and individualized lifestyle and nutrition plans to further support the acupuncture and herbs and bring you greater ease an joy in your life. Find out whether doing a 21-day cleanse might be the right solution to your chronic pain, depression or anxiety. 

When applicable, I also work collaboratively with other professionals, including therapists, psychiatrists, physical therapists, orthopedic doctors, chiropractors and naturopathic doctors to make sure you are fully supported in managing your musculoskeletal and emotional health.

I feel more calm and much healthier.
