"My journey to becoming a student and practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture, Medicinal Herbs, Diet, Cupping, Moxibustion, Meditation, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Tui Na) began with healing myself. I was going through fertility treatments in my early 30's and had the great grace of working with an MD who understood the benefits of integrative medicine - specifically Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. Before this experience, I believed that the excruciating pain of PMS was just something women have to endure, and that NSAIDs are a way of life. Because of TCM, I have enjoyed easy cycles for years. I have used this medicine to treat my own fibroids, pituitary tumor, anxiety, and insomnia. I cannot make any claim that this medicine will work for your body the same way that it did for mine. But because of the wonderful improvements I experience, I am compelled to learn this medicine and share it with the world. Since I have been a student at Emperor's College, I have observed successful treatments of a myriad of diseases including relieving chronic back and sciatic pain, unfreezing a frozen shoulder, returning facial expression to a Bell's Palsy patient, relieving lupus symptoms... It's remarkable and nearly miraculous to observe and be a part of this medicine, which is woefully misunderstood and undervalued in Western Culture. I welcome the opportunity to join you on your journey to becoming a more healthful person, enjoying greater ease in life."
