Dirk believes that an integrative approach – including health promotion, illness prevention, lifestyle changes, and treatment of the underlying causes of disease – is the key to achieving wellness. As a general practitioner, Dirk addresses all conditions and ailments, with specific attention to anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia, pain and immune deficiencies.
Prior to his career as an acupuncturist, Dirk worked as a dramaturg and artistic director in the performing arts in Germany, China, and Japan.
