About your host

I’m a licensed moxibustion healer and acupuncturist. Since discovering these medicinal practices, I’ve been a firm believer in the power of natural, drug-free remedies. I’ve lived all over the world, from England to Malaysia to Syria. My husband and I are proud hosts and love to share these ancient therapies with new people.
