If you are serious about being part of the next class, I recommend the following book as a GREAT introductory book to oriental medicine theory and practice. It is called " The Ancient and Healing Art of Chinese Herbalism" by Anna Selby and can be found on Amazon for about 2 dollars!

purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least do
them no harm".

In an environment of learning and growing both as individuals and as a group I welcome you to the learning process of growth, learning how to become an acupuncturist, and a whole individual.
Every journey begins with the first step, and I hope you are as excited as I am in beginning this journey!

All classes are conducted under his direct guidance as the owner, director of, and sole instructor of the School of Natural Medicine.
As a third generation student of Japanese Acupuncture, graduating Gigage Anagalisgi (School of Natural Medicine) in 2001, Tim brings to the class his western medical experience as a Paramedic as well as his years of experience as a eastern medicine practitioner.
A very wise man once said that to truly be successful in the practice of “eastern” medicine, one must be bilingual in both eastern and western medical theory and practice. With this thought in mind Tim hopes to instill in the students of Natural Health & Wellness both eastern and western thought processes to better understand the client and their needs.
Tim’s goal for all his students is to Encourage, Enable, and Enlighten
