Prior to starting her own private practice, she worked in a private clinic that specializes in functional medicine where she gained comprehensive knowledge of micronutrient analysis. She is a Certified NSEV practitioner and continues to deepen her knowledge of the Extraordinary Vessels with various events and workshops through the years. She recently established a Chinese herbal pharmacy at The Healing and Wellness Spa in Wilton Manors and is currently constructing a Chinese herbal garden in Hollywood.

Crystal’s approach to patient health focuses on building interpersonal relationships and incorporates the microcosmic perspective; that disease is not a series of symptoms to be suppressed, but a reflection of internal and external imbalance that require harmonization. The intention of her work is to empower the innate healing capacity of the human body-mind through custom herbal medicines, skilled acupuncture and integrative medical advice. While she enjoys the variety of treating many health issues, Crystal specializes in women’s health, pediatrics, anxiety/depression, digestive issues, and pain.
