Host Kasara D’Elene’s (www.truhealth.com) guest today is Polly Herbele of Snohomish Acupuncture & Massage. Polly is a licensed Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist. My primary focus is on Acupuncture and Wellness.
I graduated from Spectrum School of Massage in the year 2000. Spectrum is one of the oldest and high respected massage schools in Washington.
After graduating, I went to work in Hawaii. Many consider the Hawaiian Islands a natural healing location. I was fortunate to work with a vast number of healers which led me on a more spiritual path.
While in Hawaii, I opened a massage center, PT Massage, LLC and became a partner in a yoga business, Sun & Moon Yoga.
While earning my AA, I was introduced to Acupuncture through a friend and fellow yoga student, studying at Tai Hsuan, now known as World Medicine Institute. I began being treated by Dr. Gail Tadoki, a Master in five element theories. Once I was accepted into the Acupuncture program, I started receiving treatment from Dr. Chang Yi Xian, a 64th generation Heavenly Taoist Master from China.
The highlight of my education was assisting both Dr. Tadoki and Dr. Chang as they treated patients, developed herbal formulas and practiced Quong. I was one of the few students chosen to accompany Dr. Chang to China to visit several teaching hospitals and then onto Hong Kong to attend the International Taoist conference, the first in over 50 years.
