My interest in natural medicine began during visits to the village my grandfather is from in Crete, Greece. Their method of healing and preventative medicine starts in the home — with the food they eat, the use of medicinal plants growing wild around the village, and occasionally using cupping therapy (known as vendouzes). I started by studying Biomedical Sciences at the University of South Florida to lay a foundation of familiarity with western medicine and continued to complete a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in California. I continued my training with an internship in Colorado under acupuncturists and herbalists in practice for 45 years and completing a clinical residency program in Seoul, South Korea. Acupuncture and herbal medicine fascinate me and their power is immense. I look forward to bringing this ancient medicine into your healing journey.

The name - Arch Clinic

Our clinic name came from the arch in this photo.

It's what was left of my grandfather's home in Crete when I visited for the first time. This place planted the seeds of my love for natural medicine.
