Even as a child, Christina Wallace knew that she wanted to heal people. So it was natural for her to opt to study premed at UC Berkeley in California. However, her focus shifted from Western medicine to traditional Chinese medicine after being involved in a serious car accident her senior year of college. Suffering from debilitating headaches and vertigo, Christina found no relief from medical doctors. She soon turned to acupuncture, and within weeks, her health returned. Today, she draws on that experience—as well as her studies in Beijing—to treat others suffering ailments, from headaches and vertigo to emotional distress, digestive issues, and back pain.
