Nepal is nestled between India and China. In the remote area of Upper Mustang lies an ancient Tibetan Monastery that has never had medical care. 

HERO (Humanitarian Efforts Reaching Out) is dedicated to assisting people in poverty-stricken areas of the world build healthy, sustainable communities that thrive and grow. HERO has been asked by Tulku Tsori Rinpoche, to provide humanitarian relief to the people and animals of this ancient and sacred place. 

HERO team will travel from Kathmandu by air to Jomsom, a remote airstrip near the entrance to the Anapurna Trail in the Himalayas, then travel two days by jeep on barely passable roads until they reach their destination near the Tibetan border.

The group of 15 volunteers, will be carrying medical, veterinarian, solar and other sustainability supplies. Once there, for ten days, the team will establish a way to deliver medical and veterinary care to the refugees, including children’s immunizations and pre-natal care. Rabies vaccine will be provided for dogs and the volunteers will tend to any medical needs the livestock may have.  

I have decided to join the HERO team, as soon as I heard about the project. Acupuncture is a powerful tool and a healing method in treating a variety of individual and community conditions of society's poorest and least fortunate. Being the only acupuncturist on the team, I will bring pain relief to patients living with conditions such as: musculoskeletal pain, digestive pain, hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and recovery from typhoid fever; as well as people suffering from extreme poverty and social disfranchisement.

I consider myself a diplomat of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Massage Therapy, and lifestyle guidance) with an emphasis on combination Acupuncture and Massage treatments. I have practiced therapeutic massage and teaches for massage schools since 1995. With the ability to perform various styles of Acupuncture, Massage/Bodywork, Chinese herbal medicine, flower water essences, essential oil aromatherapy, and energy meditation, every treatment is individually tailored to specific needs. My unique approach blends eastern and western medical principals, striving for new and proven methods to improve our level of healing and health.

Please consider contributing to my participation in the Humanitarian Mission to Nepal. Your support will help procure medical supplies and cover travel costs to Nepal.

Thank you in advance for your consideration!
