I graduated from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine with a Master’s degree in acupuncture and herbal medicine. There are plenty of doctors (both MD and TCM doctors) in our families. I am the 4th generation but never thought of becoming a doctor. It has been a long and loopy journey for me to discover my dream of becoming a Chinese Medicine practitioner. Once I discovered it, the dream had never been stronger because I myself benefit from this medicine every day. Both my emotional /spiritual health and physical health keep on improving each day as I study, learn, and practice daily. In my dream, people are smiling when they get relieved. In my dream, I am happy and content that I can bring healing to the sufferings. And in reality, I am even happier that my dream has come true.
After graduation, I stayed in China for a few months and followed my uncle and his colleagues. My uncle provided me the best resources and opportunities to learn from the top doctors in the TCM department. It was eye opening and mind blowing to see how they treated all different health conditions with such a high successful rate. Following them everyday had given me so much faith in this traditional medicine.
I also got an opportunity to follow a bare foot doctor Mr. Lei and Dr. Lu. Both of them specialize in pain. They provided me a lot of their effective formulas in treating neck pain, back pain, neuropathy, sciatica, and etc. In the past years of my own practice, their methods and formulas have been proven to be very effective as well.
