I have been interested in Chinese medicine since I was a kid. And even before I applied to allopathic medical school, I knew I wasn’t only going to be practicing traditional Western medicine. But I didn’t completely foresee that I would be enrolling in a master’s program for acupuncture and Oriental medicine. It’s been an interesting journey for me professionally and personally, and I have explored many different paths from various forms of yoga, meditation, and Reiki to name a few over the years. Yet, I kept returning to Chinese medicine. Let me explain.
