In Alignment With Self-Healing
Where di d you receive your schooling and training, and how long have you been in practice?
After earning my Bachelor of Science in biology at UCLA, I decided that I wanted to empower people to take control of their health, so I earned my Doctor of Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College — an internationally acclaimed school in the Bay Area where students are trained in more than 13 different techniques. I’ve worked with more than 10,000 patients in Hawai‘i for nearly 20 years. Having been born and raised in Hawai‘i, it was important for me to return home to open my practice.

From the age of 2, I was never able to consistently stay healthy, which prompted my mother to seek alternative healing methods. Due to a sweat upon the tip of my nose and I also suffered from migraine headaches. If it was not for a chiropractor — who worked on my head and cra- I do not believe I’d have the health and vitality that I have today. I developed a confidence in my body’s ability to heal. All of these personal experiences ignited a passion in me to end the suffering of others by becoming a health care provider.
However, a few impactful experiences during my clinic internship opened my eyes to what I am doing now. Instead of fixing people or to get people out of pain or have a perfect aligned spine, I discovered the importance and necessity to teach people to increase their awareness of how stress impacts them negatively and have the ability and adaptability to address pains and health ailments. It’s important for each individual to take ownership of their bodies so they can eventually learn how to heal themselves and recognize how their physical and emotional ailments are serving them. This gives them the power to choose instead of reacting to situations, and therefore, make the necessary changes accordingly. about Aloha Chiropractic.
The mission of Aloha Chiropractic is to empower each and every individual to trust themselves and live life in the present. My focus is on wellness and not just treating symptoms.

The body’s ability to release stress and utilize stress as energy is another strate- gy people learn while under care. I am an educator and facilitator, and to accomplish those means, I have created an app called Infinite Body Awareness, and I have written four books (the latter two are illustrated): Wisdom, ness, This Pain in My Neck and This Pain in My Butt.
