Her interest in herbal medicine was inspired when she experienced an illness that had not been healed in 10 years of receiving western pharmaceutical drugs and care, was healed in just three treatments of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. She became increasingly passionate about empowering and supporting a patient’s innate healing potential, while recognizing the scientific healing achievements of an age old healing system utilizing herbs and acupuncture.
