About Windy     

     California license requires a minimum of 3,000 hours of study in curriculum and passing of California
licensing exam. To meet these requirements, most likely one has to go to a TCM school for 3-4 years after having acquired a college degree with all pre-med coursework.Those who have passed the California licensing exam can be licensed in most other states with or without NCCAOM certification, but not the other way around.

Q:  How many treatments will it take to see results?
A:  Acute conditions typically respond quickly, sometimes being completely resolved in a single treatment.  Chronic conditions, on the other hand, often have deep roots in the environment one lives in, and the way one has lived for years. These conditions, being chronic and systematic, have evolved to affect every part of ones physical body as well as ones mental state. If your current goal is to deal with only the symptoms, they can be addressed like an acute issue as the symptoms occur. If you would like to be disease-free and healthy in the long run, it will likely take months of hard work both on our part and yours to make it happen.

Q:  What should I be aware of before each acupuncture treatment?
A:  Acupuncture is one of the safest medical procedures. There are very few  side-effects associated with it when it is done by well-trained professionals. To achieve maximum results, you want to make sure that you are not hungry, thirsty, or extremely exhausted before acupuncture treatments.
