I am an acupuncturist and owner of Renew Acupuncture; an affordable, private acupuncture clinic in the Society Hill area of Philadelphia. I use many different modalities in my practice including: E-stim, moxibustion, gua sha, cupping, and tui na. In my spare time I love reading, learning about essential oils, yoga, gardening, traveling and live music.
