Hello, I’m Leona!
I am a passionate health, fitness, and wellness professional with over 15 years of experience in the health care field. My goal is to keep people healthy naturally by incorporating traditional Chinese medicine with modern Western medicine, creating a partnership that ensures the most beneficial outcome for your health.
Using a plant-based approach, I focus on disease prevention education, chronic conditions management, and health and wellness programs. I am also an avid yoga practitioner and believe that good nutrition truly is the best medicine.
I look at the whole picture including what did and did not work for you in the past, what’s going on with you in the present and where you want to be in the future. In partnership, your goals, your strengths and your challenges will be discussed and addressed.
In addition to being a licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist, I am also a certified health coach (IIN), a Kripalu certified yoga instructor (E-RYT 200, RYT 500), and hold certifications in medical qigong, prenatal massage, and fertility health coaching.
My personal hobbies include hiking, anything outdoors, traveling, and belly dance.
