The Way We Care

Finding answers about your health and fertility can feel like a rollercoaster ride that never stops. We are here to change that with care geared towards your unique, whole self.

We are partners in healing

We work with you to learn as much as we can about you, which is a welcome departure from what you go through in traditional Western medicine practices. Here, you will experience a warm, welcoming environment, where we support you through your frustrations and celebrate your successes – without judgment.

We’re Team Inner Peace.

We love what we do, and want you to love the experience of working with us.
When you’re here, you are part of our team. Together, we help to make your health
and wellness more understandable, manageable, and better than it’s ever been.

Healing is our passion and the thread that runs through everything we do, on the
clock or off. You’ll find that we’re well-rounded, down-to-earth, a bit goofy, and over-
joyed to be part of your life, even if it’s just for a short while.

Inner Peace Acupuncture exists because I once was in your shoes.

I know what it feels like when you’re confused, overwhelmed with advice and information, and scared that you won’t get to experience motherhood. That’s why I made the decision to dedicate my whole career to fertility.

It makes me happy knowing that every day, I help to create life and to make someone’s dream of parenthood come true.

The decision to study Chinese medicine and acupuncture was a return to my roots: I was born in China, and my mother was a Chinese medicine doctor. (She now practices in Charlotte and helps out around the office.) Her work exposed me to medicine from an early age. I remember drinking—shall we say “strong-smelling” herbs whenever I got sick, and despite the lousy smell, they always worked.

With a doctor in the family, I hadn’t considered a career in Chinese medicine until I had to turn to acupuncture and herbology as an adult when I had trouble with my own health. I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and I didn’t want to take birth control pills because that was a Band-Aid and not a solution. I also didn’t understand much about the condition because my doctor at the time said “Can’t do anything about it, just ride it out.” Despite the struggles, Chinese medicine worked for me!

After that experience, I knew I’d found my mission to help others, especially women. I knew that I wanted to help them work through their challenges and to achieve their goals with less stress, anxiety, and heartache.

This brings me to you.

To help you get to know me better, here are five fun facts about me:

  • I’m a Stitch Fix addict! My box of “Fix” arrives monthly and I usually keep everything!
  • I’ll never say no to a glass of Pinot Noir.
  • The first thing I do when I wake up is to check my phone for texts, emails, and Instagram notifications. But doesn’t everyone do this? ????
  • I’m obsessed with Downton Abbey. I’ve watched every episode three times. And I own four books about the British Edwardian era.
  • When I was five, I got my head stuck in a cage at a zoo where brown bears were kept. (We’ll talk about this one in person if we ever get the chance.)

I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to work with you. I know that together we’ll get there by jumping over hurdles one by one. I don’t believe in infertility. I believe that all women are essentially fertile and that you ultimately have the power to take action, take charge, and become pregnant.
