Noel’s healing approach emphasizes the use of more natural ways to alleviate pain and stress of clients while strengthening their resistance to disease. Her academic background in both conventional and integrative medicine grounded her in core principles and understandings of the importance of holistic healing. Her current clinical focus is on CranioSacral Therapy, a unique light-touch approach to trace areas of weak fluid flow or tissue motion in the body, in order to detect and release restrictions in the craniosacral system to optimize its function. Her work aims to generate a healing bridge to fill in the gaps in clients’ journey to better health. She specializes in care for Headache and Migraine, Post-Concussive Syndrome, and Stress.
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Noel spent most of her childhood and teens life in a society where both Eastern and Western Medicine are widely used. Noel moved to United States after high school, and earned her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and Ph.D. degree in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology from Cornell University. She was then trained at Harvard Medical School as a Postdoctoral Fellow and awarded a 3-year NIH-funded Integrative Medicine Fellowship. She is a Upledger Institute International trained CranioSacral Therapy practitioner in Massachusetts.
