I have been a bodyworker since 1996. I incorporate both Western & Eastern techniques to provide for maximal results. Bodywork sessions generally also include cupping & gua sha.
This certification exemplifies the "best practices" of compounding and dispensing of Traditional Chinese Herbal Prescriptions: promoting patient safety.
