About Me



You just arrived at “The Place of Last Resort” in the city of La Palma, California, finally!

I mean this literally, as you probably have some experience in the past, or are undergoing some ordeal to find the right practitioner. It is important to get proper care to see to your suffering.

I am a Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Philosophy in Oriental Medicine.

I have been practicing for over two decades. My knowledge and experience is bilateral in which I have been studying, researching, practicing in both the field and the academic arena.

My experience has led me to find the most effective treatment protocols for various subjects not only limited in back pain or shoulder pain. Acupuncture can address a broad range of disorders and ailments such as: headache, depression, infertility, digestive trouble, hormonal imbalance, etc.

My ‘protocol’ means it includes more than traditional acupuncture needle. It will encompass the most advanced and sophisticated diagnostic devices, test, equipment and functional medicines as well.

The beauty of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is looking at the ‘Human’ with the dignity. When I see a patient, the procedure follows with my philosophy of medicine that is: to treat and care the patient as a whole human; with regards to the physical, emotional and spiritual as a combined matrix, and not as a collection of organs or diseases.


Currently Professor, South Baylo University for Acupuncture Techniques.

-Clinic Director at Southern California University, SOMA

-Dean of Academic Affairs, Director of Doctoral program and Director of Doctoral program clinic at DULA chronically

My active academic experience maintains that my practice is empirically and scientifically supported.

Remember, Everybody has a right to choose the right methods and health care practitioner to get well!
