What led me to study Asian Bodywork?
As a teenager, I suffered with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Endometriosis, and Lyme disease. I spent many years trying to find the right physicians and treatments to successfully treat lyme and endometriosis. After living in pain and suffering with a poor functioning immune system I realized I needed more than drugs and surgery to improve my immune function. This led me to study and research alternative medicine. I was introduced to Acupuncture and Microcurrent and Color Light Therapy for pain relief. I began studying at Five Branches University in San Jose, CA in 2012. I also began studying with Dr. Darren Starwynn, Oriental Medicine Doctor of Pheonix, Arizona. Darren offers seminars in Microcurrent and Microlight therapy for pain relief.
With the combination of microlight therapy, Diet, Detoxification, Massage, Stress relief and acupuncture my health greatly improved. I discovered it’s not one bottle of pills that restores health. It takes years to undo what disease does to the body, but you can start by nurturing and helping your immune system improve, all while relieving pain and stress. Come discover the techniques that helped me regain my health, vitality and purpose.
