Joyce Wong, L.Ac
My own yoga, Qi Gong, meditation and spiritual practices are the foundation of my healing practice. I see my work as helping people find and manifest their inner self, and it is why I called my clinic Pathfinder Healing Practices – also a nod to the first Mars rover.
My intention is to support fellow travellers who are on or in search of their path.
黃德珊 Joyce Wong, Ph.D, L.Ac. Studied aerospace engineering at Arizona State University and University of Southern California. After working in industry, she pursued acupuncture and Chinese medicine studies at the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She is a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA) certified Tui Na practitioner, and Arizona state licensed acupuncturist. She follows the teachings of Jeffrey Yuen and skillfully incorporates Master Nagano Style Japanese acupuncture as taught by Sensei Kiiko Matsumoto and Sensei Tsuyoshi Shimamura, and Matt Callison style of sports acupuncture in her clinical practice.
My clinical practice includes acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Tui Na, and craniosacral therapy. Better self-care is paramount in our healing and long-term well-being, and I often incorporate some form of lifestyle coaching, just to shed light on limiting habits, in my treatment.
Food and Nutrition We are what we eat. Our relationship with food is often more influenced by emotions and culture rather than the nutritional value of food or the physical needs of our body. Sometimes “homework” for patients include test-driving dietary advice from the perspective of Chinese medicine as well as contemporary nutritional research.
Sound Body Sound Mind Qi Gong exercise, simple meditation practice, stretching pose, or journaling may be included in patients’ “homework” to cement the treatment they receive and to further their healing process.
Occasionally, homeopathy may also be used for support. This powerful, yet gentle, medicine can do wonders when used appropriately but is not a main focus of the Pathfinder practice.
