Emma is an acupuncture physician, Chinese herbalist and founder and editor of Chinese Medicine Living – a website dedicated to using traditional wisdom to live a healthy lifestyle in the modern world.
Emma found Chinese medicine as a teenager when Western medicine wasn’t able to help her with some medical issues. Doctors told her that her only options were a lifetime of drugs or major surgery. After exploring other options, she found Chinese medicine and after a few months of acupuncture and herbs, the problems she had struggled with for years were resolved. It was at this point that she fell in love with Chinese medicine and decided it was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. She wanted to help others who might not realize that there were other, more natural options for healing that didn’t require surgery or drugs.
Emma has become an expert in her field, writing for Chinese Medicine Living, Acupuncture.com, Chinese Medicine Digital Magazine and Qi Journal. She has run several busy practices, seeing patients full time and working in four countries. She is passionate about what she does and loves to share her knowledge of this wonderful medicine.
Emma is a long time martial arts student, graphic/web designer, English teacher (who taught in China), writer, lover of travel and the natural world, intensely curious person and all around super nerd.
