Our Team

I founded Ground Luminosity in 2012, but have been a bodyworker since 2006. I discovered in this time that, as much as I’d like it to be true, bodywork is not the only answer for improving one’s life. It sure does help, but so does acupuncture, good nutrition, and safe exercises like yoga, tai-chi, and qigong. Combined a person can achieve an amazing state of existence. For this reason, I have expanded my practice to include acupuncture and exercise classes with nutrition workshops. My intention and that of my team are to help improve the lives of as many people as we can, so they can make decisions from a place of love and trust to continue their health and that of the environment. It sounds cheesy, I know, but it’s true. The only future we have is the one we create.

I graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a B.S in Hospitality Management. I have an extensive background and training, most recently working in management at a Spa and professional Ballroom Dance studio. I am so happy I was guided here exactly when I was supposed to be---finding my true home here. I believe in creating a unique, genuine experience for clients, connecting with people and making a difference. I also have experienced for myself and have seen how much massage, acupuncture, yoga and other alternative therapies can help heal a person's body. I love being a part of something bigger than myself and being intentional with life. My love for hiking and nature started from my husband, but he has yet to convince me to backpack. I enjoy reading, dancing, traveling, tea and wandering the aisles of Home Goods.

I am a licensed acupuncturist in Pennsylvania. After graduating with a degree in Asian Studies from Swarthmore College, I earned my  Masters degree in Acupuncture Studies from the Won Institute of Graduate Studies in Glenside, PA. I have traveled throughout Asia, including four months studying Chinese medicine at Beijing University in China. I utilize Master Tung’s distal needling and Classical Five Element Acupuncture in her treatments. I treat patients with a variety of disorders, specializing in all pain conditions, allergies, women’s issues, and emotional and chronic conditions. I use gentle needling techniques in treatments and the tools of cupping, tui na, and gua sha when appropriate. I have seen first hand with myself and my patients how acupuncture has the ability to improve the quality of one’s life. I also believe in eating nutritiously and exercising regularly. I love to cook, travel, and spend time outdoors with my husband and dog.

I have practiced yoga for many years. I enjoy many styles of yoga, including Bikram, Yin, and Vinyasa. I couple my passion for enabling your personal growth with her experience in psychology, law and education, to deliver a coherent and individually tailored pathway that will transform your body and your life. My approach to yoga honors the need to develop a healthy mind and body so that we may bring our best selves to our interpersonal relations and our community. Your practice with me will build your personal strength and stamina and lead to a healthy sense of peace. My asana practice will allow you to explore the Spiritual through the Physical. My Vinyasa style classes, workshops and private sessions emphasize technique and alignment to ensure that practitioners of all levels may safely and progressively advance their practice. The most difficult part of yoga is often making an affirmative decision to practice, and I provide a safe environment that encourages every yogi to reach new levels.
