Alison Doherty graduated with honors receiving a master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Yo San University. She completed a residency program at Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles where she treated pediatric patients with chronic pain conditions, and an array of complex autoimmune diseases.

Considering her experiences at Children’s Hospital, her focus has been trained on pediatrics, pain management and women’s health. Her background of 13 years in early childhood education, childcare and child development enhanced her desire to use Chinese Medicine to help children, women wanting to start families, and others in the restoration and preservation of their quality of life before, throughout, and after illness.

Prior to being awarded the Tao of Wellness Fellowship, she was the Assistant Academic Dean and taught Chinese herbal medicine at Yo San University. Alison also worked as an acupuncturist at a community acupuncture clinic while operating her own private practice in Santa Monica.
