Welcome to my site!
The purpose of my website is to help bring the incredible knowledge of Asian medicine (Chinese medicine), Holistic nutrition and living in harmony with the seasons. Originally, I started this website as a resource for my students and clients. I’m happy to say it has evolved into much more. I hope you find it helpful.
Asian medicine or Chinese medicine?
Am I confused?
You may have noticed that both words have been appearing on this site. I was trained to refer to what I offer and teach as Chinese medicine, however most of my training descends through a Korean lineage and I have training in Japanese healing arts as well. I’m choosing to use the word Asian so as to include and honor and acknowledge the traditions of these cultures that I use in my teaching and practice. It’s semantics that I feel need to evolve, so I will be going through and editing all blogs and pages to read Asian medicine.
