Acupuncture helped her fully heal a shoulder injury she sustained while surfing, when no other form of therapy was working. After witnessing the potential of acupuncture first-hand, she decided to further her knowledge and skills and undertake the educational journey that has shaped her life and desire to help the wellness and well being of others through this ancient and modern medical practice. Her training includes acupuncture, traditional Chinese and contemporary cupping, tui na massage, acupressure, and qi gong self-healing.
