Tsao started her career in the corporate world, but after 10 years as a successful executive, it had become a draining and uninspiring environment for Tsao. She felt called to a different path, one that would bring meaning and purpose to her life and allow her to help others in significant ways. This path became a journey into the ancient healing traditions of Eastern Medicine.

What is integrative healing?
A true integrative healing approach takes into account the whole person (energetic, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects), family history, their health history including all aspects of lifestyle now. The emphasis is on using all appropriate therapies available, both conventional and alternative to help bring the person back to being “whole”. The objective is for the patient to cultivate self mastery so they can make informed decisions about their health and live their optimal life. Health plays a HUGE role in this.
Does one size fit all?
Standardized treatments are not effective in the long term. I have departed from the quick fix, "need" based sessions. This is not optimal health and is based on a “broken and fix” model.
Each person that I work with comes with their own unique experiences and health goals.
There is a certain level of commitment and discipline necessary to achieve a high level of health and healing. With expert guidance and support in an on-going program format patients are able to achieve balance, stability and wellness in their lives.
In my programs, you will experience expertise, guidance, support and personal attention that address your underlying health issues.
The commitment between practitioner and patient is emphasized in balancing and healing of the whole as well the community. Our approach is to balance and heal the whole person on physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual levels.
