She practices a classical style of Traditional Chinese Medicine that employs a unified consideration of the patient’s mind, body and lifestyle in order to come up with the most effective treatment.  She frequently uses other modalities such as moxabustion and cupping, herbal medicine, and Chinese nutritional therapies.  

Holly is currently pursuing a DAOM (Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
