Before I first entered this path of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I was split between two worlds. One world was the world of “Western” Medicine. The other was the world of energetic medicine. I practiced yoga and Tai Chi and knew the power of Qi and Prana. At the same time I was fascinated with the progress of Science and how it manifests in the practice of “Western” medicine.
As I learned more, I realized that these two approaches to medicine compliment the other, and the future of medicine resides in the integration the two. This focus lead me to study at Five Branches where we are required to attend a similar curriculum as pre med students, as well as becoming steeped in the beautiful and powerful medicine that has developed for thousands of years in China.
