  6. Most rewarding aspect of practice: The most rewarding aspect of practice is witnessing others lifted up through the modalities of East Asian Medicine. Second to this, is having been given the tools from my school to listen to another with my hands, mind, ears, eyes, and then bring about an action that opens, releases, nourishes, or soothes another being. It is the truest way of connecting I know.
  7. Most essential tips for other graduates desiring to establish a successful practice: A successful practice arises out of caring and curiosity. People can feel if your intentions are sincere and your words are genuine. Secondly, one must be a lifelong learner, continually sharpening your skills internally and externally. One must also strive to know the body inside and out. In the beginning, it is helpful to live in an area that is not saturated by other acupuncturists. One can ask other successful acupuncturists in the area from where long distance clients are driving.
