Describe your reasons for choosing this field and for choosing SIEAM a little brief history of me.. My love for holistic medicine began when I was in the military. I saw firsthand how the medical staff treated clients and gave tylenol for basically everything. There was an aspect of presence missing. In 2019, I traveled to Bali to complete a 200 hour yoga teacher training certificate. Through this training meridans and energy centers were introduced to me. I became to fascinated in holistic healing modalities, I signed up for a massage therapy program at Pacific College of Health and Science in 2019, upon completion of the 500 hour massage therapy program I knew I wanted to continue my education in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This fall I am enrolled in a PREP course for MSTOM. I have throughly enjoyed my time at PCHS but I am eager to transfer to SIEAM.
