What drew you to this profession?
According to Chinese medicine, our health depends on seasons, stars, the five elements, yin and yang, and so forth. Each organ has not only its own function but also its own personality. Face and body reading is major diagnostic tool.
How does your work differ from that of others in your profession?
I traveled through Asia to study traditional medicines. My method combines many techniques from Chinese, Japanese and Indian traditional medicine.
What should someone expect from working with you?
I don’t just treat conditions; I also educate my patients in self-help methods.
What changes do you have planned for 2022?
I plan to establish a community acupuncture service that’s affordable to everyone.
Anything else our readers should know?
Oriental medicine and acupuncture are very effective noninvasive techniques for enhancing your health.
