As an Acupuncturist, Summer draws from a rich variety of skills and experience gained from her formal education as well as a lifelong passion for attaining optimal well-being, health, and happiness through her own research and self-discovery.
Summer offers helpful lifestyle, exercise and dietary recommendations in conjunction with a patient’s unique presentation, and often incorporates Tui-Na, a style of Chinese massage, into acupuncture treatments. The patient-practitioner relationship is one of immense power and possibility. Summer’s main goal for her patients is to effectively treat the main issue at hand by working closely together throughout the journey towards healing. By cultivating a greater understanding of how a patient’s unique body works through the eyes of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, the better patients will be able to take care of themselves and feel empowered to make the changes necessary to meet their highest goals.
