Bridget has been practicing acupuncture since 2006, and massage and bodywork since 1997. She came to Chinese medicine by receiving it. Being an athlete climbing, skiing, surfing she sought out the things that would help her feel better, with more vitality, and ease of motion. She soon discovered the benefits of boosting the immune system and emotional balance. Which led her to internal medicine and all the help Chinese medicine can have on more chronic conditions.
