“The DTCM/MTCM Program provided me with a wonderful foundation to start my career as a holistic healthcare practitioner. I am grateful for the experienced faculty who devoted their time to teaching me this profound medicine. In addition to learning the authentic practices of Traditional Chinese medicine, they taught me the power of empathy, deep listening, kindness, and intention. This program has profoundly changed my life and has deepened my understanding of health.”
