Lina Yerkes L.Ac
Lina was born and grew up in Italy. At a very young age she became fascinated with Oriental medicine when at a Health Fair she met an Asian doctor skilled in Chinese medicine and martial arts. He spoke with her of Qi energy (Chi) and of the qualities of Yin and Yang and how their balance affects every condition of body and mind. After that encounter, she began to read all she could about ancient medicine and its benefits. Following a tragic event in her family, she discovered the detrimental side effects and limitations of Western medicine and vowed to someday find a way to help people recover and transform their health using alternative medicine. Many years later, Lina’s life long dream became a reality when she had an opportunity to study Chinese medicine and achieve her Masters of Science from California’s renowned Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. She is now a Primary Care provider and is a certified licensed Acupuncturist & Herbalist.
