Five Element Acupuncture changed my life.


It is my intention to help you change yours. 

My physical health hasn’t been a struggle for me. In fact, you might say that I have a knack for health. Even though I grew up on a high sugar, standard american diet (SAD,) I had enough to eat, spent a lot of time outside, and was very athletic. However, my emotional health was a different story. I can tell you that when I was a kid playing in a neighborhood league championship basketball game, I cried the whole last 5 minutes because we were losing. 🙀 WHY did it feel that important for an 11 year old “star of the team” to always WIN? Oy, because I was emotionally broken like many people are – due to emotional trauma.

Fast forward to 2010 when I moved to Oregon from NYC. This was a big deal for me. I came from a family who did not leave. Even though I was an explorer with a wide variety of interests, something held me back. Trauma. Codependency. Family patterns. Lack of confidence. Finances. Overwhelm. Not having a vision. Not believing in myself.

By 2014, I was still “exploring” my career path. I was already in love with Chinese Medicine but still working as a Massage Therapist – offering energetic bodywork sessions, learning herbal medicine, and not knowing how to move from being a seeker into being the emperor of my own life.

After receiving my first few sessions of Worsley Five Element Acupuncture, I knew I had found what I was looking for. There was a rhythm to it that was different from any Acupuncture I had previously experienced. I began feeling lighter and more like myself – and you know what? In those first couple of months, my life started to change. The health concerns that I did have all improved. My relationships got better and I felt more comfortable in them. I quit the crappy job. I got serious about my Shiatsu practice. Eventually, I went back to school. The big school – Chinese Medicine; the one that I had been avoiding for years.

These days I take care of myself through meditation, eating what my body likes (mostly organic vegetables and grass fed meats, but not exclusively!,) going to the gym, engaging in a spiritual practice, surfing, yoga, hiking, being in nature, spending enough time alone, and surrounding myself with positive people. I am fortunate to experience good health on all levels – Mind, Body, and Spirit. I work hard at this because I know how amazing it is to feel good. Chinese and Natural Medicine are a big part of my repertoire of healthy living.

My mission is to teach people how to heal themselves through their connection with Spirit and Nature. We truly are Nature, and when you learn how nature works within you – you can create balance within and HEAL FROM THE INSIDE OUT!
