Most rewarding aspect of practice: There are so many, it would be hard to choose one. At this moment, I feel most rewarded with the work that I do for the Acupuncture Relief Project (ARP) in Bajra Barahi, Nepal. This organization utilizes licensed Chinese medicine providers to offer primary care and acupuncture services in villages in rural Nepal. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world and diarrhea, gastrointestinal disorders, parasites, leprosy, and tuberculosis are still leading causes of death. The first time I was there, I worked six days a week, providing primary care and acupuncture treatment for 15-22 patients per day. The five of us there were able to care and provide treatment for over 100 people each day. These people would have no access to care if it were not for our clinics. We diligently monitor and measure each patient so that we can clearly chart the changes that acupuncture is making in the cases we see. This work with ARP has shown me when we listen to our patients, meet them with the utmost compassion, and follow through with their cases so that we are working as team players with all of the entities involved, we can progress some of the most complicated and distressing cases.
