After 25 years as an acupuncturist and hypnotherapist, I’m as passionate about the work now as ever. This year, I became a published author, and my book, Rewired For Sleep: the 28-Day Insomnia Repair Program has helped many people to get a full night’s rest. After my insomnia and anxiety were cured with acupuncture, I left a career in music and entered a four-year graduate program in Chinese medicine, graduating in 1995. After a stint at an integrative pain management clinic, in 1998 I began treating sleep-related issues including PTSD, and anxiety and insomnia.
I routinely utilize herbs, hypnosis and hormonal balancing to address the stressors that are everywhere around us. The goal is always to diminish the impact of all stressors including heavy metals, immune suppressants, toxic chemicals and food allergies.
I’ve done a good deal of post-graduate studies, taught at university, opened an HIV clinic, worked with hedge-fund managers and in halfway houses with women who had been damaged by drugs (I far preferred the latter!). As a specialist in sleep disorders, I often lecture on the diverse ways people heal from insomnia.
Oh, and I still play my old Gibson guitar.

After practicing acupuncture and hypnosis for twenty-six years I still find people, and the work, fascinating. A good practitioner continues to learn new methods of helping people. Each new patient also begins as a mystery. My training gives me a template for how to unravel that mystery, and Chinese medicine provides us with a template for resolving patient’s issues.
The Blue Phoenix philosophy is simple:
I believe that a practitioner’s ability to help another person is defined by the tools at their disposal. For that reason, I use acupuncture, herbs, hypnosis (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and hormonal balancing. We all know that today’s stressors are everywhere and require new methods of treatment. Among the tools we use are targeted supplements that help with detoxification from Heavy Metals, chemical, food allergies and immune-suppressants. The next step is to find the way that will most help the person heal.
