Born in China and had the fortunate opportunity to study Traditional Chinese Medicine there for many years. I have been classically trained in many TCM techniques of TaiJi GuaSha, Pure Yang Moxibustion, finger and foot needling as well as Foot Reflexology, Auricular needling, and FengShui. I also obtained my Public Health degree from Peking University and was able to share my knowledge in this area along with pathology education as a professor in Beijing Nursing School for 4 years prior to raising my family in Connecticut.
After studying both Western medicine and TCM, they seem like the left and right hands to me. They combine together to benefit patients in a holistic method. I agree with Trish, the founder of Acupuncture Works, that “Generally speaking, acute, life-threatening conditions are best handled by Western trained medical doctors. Whereas routine health problems and chronic conditions for which drug therapy and surgery have not been effective often benefit from Eastern medicine.”
In Acupuncture treatment, the phrase of “同气相求” describes the practitioner and the patient as being in the same frequency of Qi with the same intention of cure as the result. This encourages us to work together in collaboration efficiently.
Wishing you health, wellness, and peace,
