“When I was a little girl I remember my mother working at a hospital of Chinese Medicine. I remember how my siblings and the rest of my family were treated with Chinese Medicine and acupuncture when we were ill. From my family upbringing I came to understand the benefits of Chinese Medicine and the principles of its philosophy, such as holism: the body’s self-healing ability; and the idea that there are important correspondences between nature and people.
So, I decided to become a doctor of Chinese Medicine, with the goal of not only treating diseases in a way that is natural but also to help people have healthy and balanced lives.”Dr. Linda Han
