My mission is to progress natural healing and medicine, one patient at a time, by unlocking the potential for self-healing through a variety of natural treatments and approaches. I am dedicated to promoting informed consent within healthcare and advocating for the use of effective and non-invasive interventions, allowing patients to avoid unnecessary surgeries
As an expert Diagnostician and a dedicated Functional Medicine Doctor of Physical Therapy, I specialize in diagnosing and resolving complex, puzzling, and rare medical cases associated with chronic pain and physical imbalances. With a patient-centered approach, I conduct comprehensive medical histories, thorough physical examinations, and recommend and interpret diagnostic tests to uncover the root cause of your symptoms. Utilizing my expertise in critical thinking, problem-solving, and staying abreast of the latest research, I excel at unraveling medical mysteries and providing accurate diagnoses and personalized treatment plans. Furthermore, I collaborate with other specialists when necessary to gather additional insights that can enhance the diagnostic process and ensure comprehensive care for my patients.
One of my greatest joys in life is helping people discover how to live their best lives. As a Functional Medicine Doctor of Physical Therapy specializing in pelvic rehabilitation, orthopedic sport and spine physical therapy, and Myofascial Release (MFR) medical massage therapy, I individualize each session to treat the root cause. My treatments are specifically tailored to the needs of each patient to make sure they receive the approach that works best for them. I specialize in identifying the nature of imbalances and finding integrative pathways towards treating the root cause of diagnoses. Together, we discover WHY conditions and symptoms manifest into imbalances, keeping in mind the connection of the mind, body, and spirit. Time and again, I have seen the incredible healing power of my treatments. Please contact me to find out more.
The field of Women's Health has always been an area of passion, and it is my mission to increase awareness and access to women's and pelvic health education and individualized integrative holistic rehabilitation care. Receiving individualized and preventative healthcare methods helps to create the potential to live life without chronic pain and avoid unnecessary surgical interventions and life-altering impairments. My patients can always expect a level of care and attention that will bring them both restoration, relief, and a sense of self-empowerment.
I aim to provide the absolute best and most integrated approach to individualized care. My clinical practice includes the performance of internal and external musculoskeletal assessments, along with the treatment of the physical body's functional movement system. Care and attention are also provided to assess and treat the body's emotional and fascial system in order to connect, support, and restore balance. Additionally, I offer guidance when needed towards a holistic approach to nutrition and hormone support through the understanding that food is medicine.
I grew up on the Big Island in a rural town where I was able to live off the āina and learn the importance of community and ohana. Now, living my best life here on Oahu, I continue to find joy in creating connections and serving the community. I enjoy exploring the beautiful ko'olau ridge-lines with my ohana, swimming at Kailua Beach, tending to Mother Earth's gifts in my garden, and sharing health and wellness resources with my community.
