Fascination by Observation or How I Found Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
I had my first experience of acupuncture in my senior year of undergrad. At that time, I knew I wanted to be in the medical field, but I just wasn’t sure how. My degree included writing a senior thesis, and since I already had an interest in Chinese culture and martial arts, I thought, why not write it on acupuncture? Let’s see what this stuff is really all about.
I observed a local practitioner for several months and was fascinated by the “magic” of acupuncture and the variety of conditions that could be improved by Chinese Medicine. After college, I took a gap year to teach English in Spain, then applied to acupuncture school and haven’t looked back!
