My Journey with Acupuncture
Empowered healing became a personal mission for Victoria after watching her parents battle kidney failure and multiple sclerosis their entire life. Week after week she attended appointments and watched how disease and Her experience with the moderm medical system's focus on treating the symptoms and not the whole disease as well as recognizing the shortcomings of a person's identity being linked to their ailment of disease made her vow to be a medical practitioner who focused on treating body, mind and spirit in order to promote healing.
With this passion in mind, Victoria enrolled in Loyola University's undergraduate program where she truly felt Loyola's mission of treating the body, mind and spirit through a focus on exploring the different aspects of medicine. It is during her senior year of college, that Victoria's journey with acupuncture began when she started getting migraines. The migraines got consistently worse soon accompanied by symptoms of weight loss, fatigue, irritability, nausea and dizziness. These symptoms baffled western medical professionals and no medication seemed to help. Her doctors recommended that she try acupuncture and after a month of weekly treatments, the severity and frequency of my migraines lessened week by week until she no longer had any symptoms. Through research and weekly acupuncture visits, Victoria soon found the answer which she was looking for on how to provide empowered healing. This started her journey with acupuncture and she enrolled to obtain a Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
