Kumiko feels strongly that the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are maximized through the simultaneous practice of qigong. As a result, above and beyond the extensive qigong training that she experienced through the Master’s Degree program at Yo San University, Kumiko also engaged additional trainings that led to certifications in Harmony Tai Chi, Crane Style Qi Gong and Tai Chi Sword forms. With extensive externship placements at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Premiere Oncology, and Venice Family Clinic, by the time she graduated Kumiko was experienced in treating a wide range of patients and conditions.
