She recognizes that all of her patients are unique individuals and looks for keys to each patient’s wellbeing. Prior illnesses, accidents, lifestyle, diet, and finding out what makes her patients happy all become a part of the healing process. Through this process, the patient also learns more about how to help themselves, empowering them to find and maintain a healthy balance on their own.
