Always having had an interest in women’s health, Julie specializes in the treatment of women’s health which includes: infertility and fertility enhancement, pregnancy, menstrual disorders and perimenopause. She had a practice in San Francisco for two years before moving to Chapel Hill to join Triangle Acupuncture Clinic. In San Francisco, she treated women with various fertility and menstrual problems. In addition, while in San Francisco, Julie worked with a leading infertility acupuncturist, Dr. Lifang Liang. There she treated many women experiencing fertility difficulties who were using Assisted Reproductive Technologies such as IVF and IUI treatments, as well as women who were trying to conceive naturally. She also worked with many women through their pregnancies.
Julie first experienced the benefits of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine when she developed Repetitive Strain Injury in her arms from computer use. She tried physical therapy, chiropractic care, biofeedback, and occupational therapy. While all of these modalities offered some relief, it was not until she started acupuncture treatments that she began to notice profound changes. Eventually she decided to pursue the study of Chinese Medicine so that she could offer people the same benefits that she had experienced.
Julie has a gentle touch, and creates a safe and nurturing environment for her patients. She is committed to educating and caring for her patients, and partners with them to cultivate greater health and well-being.
As her practice has grown, Julie has become increasingly drawn to the role that diet, emotional well-being, and lifestyle impacts health. To gain more insight and tools to help people on these levels, she enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and is now a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She works with clients in one-to-one and in group settings through her business, Exponential Wellness. She specializes in working with women who are looking to improve their energy, increase their productivity, and feel more clear-headed and focused.
