“Since I was a little child I wanted to follow my family’s ancient tradition of Chinese medical practice and become a successful doctor. My education in Chinese herbal medicine had started at a very early age. When I was just a 5 or 6 year-old girl, I would rush from school to the local hospital where I learned about Chinese herbs. I have learned acupuncture, Chinese medicine and tui na from some of the most senior and distinguished medical professors in China.”
