She is dedicated to help patients achieve optimal wellness at any stage of life. She specializes in pain, dis-ease due to stress, menstrual disorders, and facial rejuvenation. She currently holds an MS in Oriental Medicine, and has over 30 years in the healthcare field.
Theresa has also provided Chinese Medicine lectures and Reiki demonstrations to students in Nursing and Anthropology courses at a local college. Because she had health issues as a child, Theresa was introduced to both conventional and alternative therapies including Chinese medicine early in life. This gave her a strong curiosity about how the body’s mechanisms work sparking many questions and later giving her direction for her education goals.
As a teenager she witnessed a middle aged family member in a lot of pain and having great difficulty walking due to a prolapsed bladder. Though the only option was surgery according to physicians, this person had a dramatic improvement in her condition through the use of Chinese medicine. Now well into her 80’s the woman still has normal bladder function and is without bladder pain.
