I was introduced to acupuncture in 2015, as an alternative to medication for anxiety after the loss of my grandma. In just a few sessions, my lack of appetite and insomnia disappeared; I couldn’t believe how powerful acupuncture was.
This experience not only introduced me to holistic medicine but changed the direction of my career. I decided to leave my job in finance and start a new profession as a massage therapist. I loved it; I had good results and improved the well-being of many but, I encountered some limitations.
I was introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), an ancient healing practice that includes acupuncture, massage, nutrition, herbs and lifestyle advice in order to prevent and fight disease. I found what I was looking for and soon after, I enrolled in a degree level acupuncture course at The City College of Acupuncture.
I didn’t know at that time that acupuncture would come again to my rescue when I was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer at the age of 31. I was able to manage the side effects of chemotherapy with acupuncture, herbs, massage and other holistic therapies. It made a huge difference in my recovery.
My journey has further strengthened by belief in complementary and alternative therapies to the unnecessary overuse of conventional drugs we are all exposed to.
