The twelve primary channels of the body are like rivers: their currents and depths vary, their courses twist and move through different regions of the body.
They all flow together and yet they are each their own river. When a river becomes blocked, water pools and floods, downstream the vegetation cannot be nourished.
The concept is similar in the body, where the smooth flow of qi and blood is essential to health and balance.

Healing and Wellness from 3,000 years of Chinese Medical Wisdom
At Twelve Rivers Medicine I provide acupuncture, herbal medicine, and food and nutrition therapy. I work from a classical Chinese medical perspective, as well as the Traditional Chinese Medicine often taught today.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine work effectively in treating all types and severities of illness and play a key role in health maintenance because they work within a framework of Chinese medicine, a whole health system.
Because every symptom of disease is seen from a Chinese medical perspective as an imbalance, symptoms of muscular and joint pain, common cold, anxiety, depression, digestive problems, stress, insomnia, infertility, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, plantar fasciitis can all be treated with acupuncture.
I'm honored to work with and sensitive to the needs of queer, transgender and gender non-conforming patients.
