Why I Became an Acupuncturist
Around eight years ago I found myself in an Acupuncturist’s office, being treated for a persistent and intractable pain in my lower abdomen. This was not my first acupuncture treatment, but it was by far the most profound!
Western medicine had no diagnosis for me and therefore they had no treatment plan for me, despite the hundreds of dollars I had already spent on tests. Acupuncture was a last ditch attempt at relief for me and I was honestly not too hopeful. Imagine my surprise when I was freed of my pain after a single treatment!
My acupuncturist did not seem at all surprised by this… as a matter of fact, she seemed quite use to the shock and amazement that I was displaying. This, in and of itself, left an impression on me.
I was undeniably inspired and motivated by this experience and two years later I took the plunge and enrolled in Chinese Medicine school. It became my life’s desire to help others in the simple, elegant, and effective way that my friend had helped me.
How I Came to Wimberley
As a small child in 1965 I was toted here for the first time with my family for a summer vacation. My parents instantly fell in love with the area and by 1975 they had bought a vacation home in Woodcreek and eventually ended up retiring here in 1983.
During my 20’s I traveled extensively and ended up living in several major cities around the world, but somehow Wimberley was always home. It was the place where my family was, where I could swim in clean, clear waters and where I could actually see the stars at night.
In essence… it is the place where I have felt the most nurtured… where I have felt most at peace! In 1993 I moved here permanently, leaving to attend Acupuncture school from 2005 to 2009.
