Personal Messge from Aram
Welcome fellow traveler on the path to Total Wellness. I wish to share with you my experiences of the wonders awaiting you on this road. My own journey into the wonderful world of healing began when I was a young child, watching my grandfather practice the ancient art of Armenian Traditional Medicine. I have fond memories of sitting patiently at his side observing him mix and match various herbs to make herbal preparations, or perform seemingly magical rituals. I was fascinated with the process and sure that I would follow in his footsteps to continue his traditions as a healer. But like most young people, I lost my path and at the peek of my young adulthood, after earning a Masters in Computer Science, and Business Management, ended up drifting in the corporate maze of remedial management roles, commissions, quotas and profits, and the never ending proverbial ladder that never seems to get you anywhere. Always nursing this deep seeded longing for something grander and more meaningful in my life.
It was the death of my grandfather that ultimately reawakened me to my true calling. I eventually found my way to the wonderful learning institution known as Yo San University of TCM in Los Angeles where I completed my Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine with Highest Honors. Immediately after obtaining the NCCAOM and California Board Licenses for Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, I took off to China to complete my post graduate and doctorate residency at Sichuan Academy of TCM in Chengdu. There I specialized in herbal chemotherapy and worked with cancer patients, I also interned at the dermatology hospital treating variety of skin conditions and practiced rehabilitation medicine for stroke patients. Upon my return I decided to share my journey with my community and have established this practice where we can together continue on the path to Total Wellness.
My philosophy of life, 18 years of varied experience in the hustle and bustle of the corporate world, tempered with the deep teachings of Taoist philosophies and my grandfathers timeless lessons, have given me a unique perspective on what ails us today and how best to address them.
Come join me on this wonderful path to awakening and lets return to the path of Total Wellness together.
