Our purpose in life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment. — Dalai Lama

My long journey through my health and wellness education started as a personal quest to get my life back.  Before declaring my major in my undergraduate work, I began to experience blinding migraine headaches and severe neck and back pain.  My doctor kept telling me I was fine, so I decided I would use my education to help myself.

My long journey through my health and wellness education started as a personal quest to get my life back.  Before declaring my major in my undergraduate work, I began to experience blinding migraine headaches and severe neck and back pain.  My doctor kept telling me I was fine, so I decided I would use my education to help myself.
For this reason, I began studying Nutrition and received my Bachelor's Degree in that area in 2006 from Oklahoma State University.  However, changing my diet did not seem to make a difference in my pain. In addition, the long hours of studying for my degree had made my pain worse.
I was beginning to think I would have to resign myself to a long life of getting worse and worse because western medicine had not been helpful so far.  Then, while looking at graduate programs, I found Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Master's Degree Programs throughout the United States.  Although, I had never had the opportunity to experience alternative medicine while in Oklahoma, I decided this was the next path in my journey to regain a happy life.
I then spent the next 5 years learning Acupuncture, herbal medicine, Shiatsu, Qi Gong, Yoga, fire cupping and many other alternative therapies. My fellow students and I received many treatments from each other throughout this time and I had the luxury of the reasonably priced student clinic as a resource. To my great surprise and relief, I began to see progress through my pain.  Acupuncture, massage and yoga were the main contributors to my success.  I graduated from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2011 with a Master's Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and a passion to take this medicine to anyone who needs it.
The only barrier to getting this medicine to any and all who need it was the cost.  Acupuncture treatments can be prohibitively expensive.  Then I found the Community Acupuncture Movement.  This network of practitioners took me under their wing and taught me how to deliver this miracle of healing in a low cost manner.
Now I am here to help and I am grateful for the opportunity.

First time receiving acupuncture. I was quite impressed by both the relaxed environment, feeling from the needle and the aftermath. I’m still feeling good. Nearly a month later. I look forward to going again.

I wish there were curtains between the chairs and that the chairs would lay back a little bit. Other than that it is wonderful
