About Me and about Healing Arts

About Healing Arts

Are you dealing with chronic health issues and feel like you don’t get enough answers? Do you leave your doctor’s office with more questions than answers? Do you feel like your body is trying to tell you something but you don’t know how to listen? Healing is complex. Illness is complex. Modern science has trained us to see the mind, body and spirit as three different entities. We discuss treat our symptoms as if they have nothing to do with our mind and spirits.

I am a board certified Internal Medicine Physician and Reiki Master. My training and life experience has led me to create Healing Arts Health and wellness, and online space for you to come and explore the connections between the mind, the body and the spirit.

You can listen to the Art of Healing Podcast for weekly episodes. Online articles are available weekly as well on the blog.
