After earning a bachelor of science degree in biology, Heather Stokes continued her education at New York State Chiropractic College, which included a period spent studying traditional Chinese medicine in Hangzhou. Now armed with a master's degree in acupuncture and oriental medicine, Heather uses alternative healing methods to treat diverse symptoms.
