Ellen Shefi will assist you in your healing process and health plan. She will be your personal guide in your healthcare: sometimes being an active detective to uncover the dis-ease; other times working with you to be a catalyst in balancing your energy and your life. In Chinese medicine, each person and disease is viewed uniquely. Therefore, each treatment is tailored to the unique needs of the patient at that particular time.
