I am a therapist for Chinese Medicine in Ann Arbor/MI. As a main subject I practice acupuncture. I usually combine acupuncture with Chinese Herbal Medicine to increase the range and efficiency of the therapy. A combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs makes the therapy of chronic and systematic progressing conditions possible, which are more stubborn; for example progressed endometriosis, several skin disorders or chronic diarrhea.
My session usually last 90 Minutes. They usually start with an update after an initial diagnosis and I adjust my acupuncture prescription accordingly. (I keep for every single patient a Patient report.)
Every session includes a massage in prone position.

As one of the few autodidactic educated TCM practitioners in Michigan and the USA I was recently- after years of efforts and struggle - informed by the chair of the MAAOM [Michigan Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine] that I will be admitted to the National Examination of the NCCAOM [National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine] to give proof to my knowledge. It will be my great pleasure to do so!
