“It wasn’t the needles that drew me to Chinese Medicine. Nor the herbs. Nor the moxa, cupping, or gua sha. What drew me to this field was my strong desire to help individuals and communities realize their fullest potential: in health, in strength, and in vitality.
After retiring from my career as a dancer in 2011, I looked into various healing approaches—western and eastern—that would fill this desire in a subsequent career. It soon became clear to me that Chinese Medicine views the body the way I have my entire dance-filled life—as an indivisible and interconnected system.
