Growing up in a family of Chinese Medicine practitioners, I learned from a young age that mind-body wellbeing is the key to radiant beauty. This knowledge has helped me navigate a modeling career spanning two decades; working with esteemed brands like Oscar de la Renta, Rick Owens, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel. However, I still learned the hard way that health is the greatest gift of all. After college, I spent a few years working in investment management. During this time, I started developing various health issues under the high-stress, high-intensity environment.
Eventually, I suffered from severe burnout.
The frustration with my own ailments prompted me to seek out acupuncture and other Chinese Medicine practices to get myself healthy again. Ultimately, I was able to recover and regain balance. My own healing journey has guided me back to my ancestral roots. It inspired me to dedicate myself to studying this ancient science and go on to gain my Masters in Acupuncture from the New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, with further clinical training in both hospitals and private clinics in the United States and China. I am a New York State licensed and board-certified acupuncturist. More importantly, it became clear that my mission is to share this powerful mind-body medicine to help others restore health.
I started Hima Acupuncture with the goal of helping busy New Yorkers take control of their own health while living ambitious lives. I feel very blessed to be the partner-in-health to my clients, and proudly serves the Broadway and Cirque du Soleil community.
I have also been recognized as one of the top acupuncturists in New York City from 2019-2023 by Expertise.com. Besides running a busy clinic, I also enjoy writing for various wellness websites in my free time. I invite you to read some of these writings in the Articles section.
