Through my eight-month acupuncture experience with Bev, I learned the importance of being centered, grounded, relaxed, listening to my body, and remembering to breathe. Bev’s presence is immediately comforting, and she has perfected the art of listening. The opportunity to have Bev as an acupuncturist has been a wonderful learning and life experience. As I continue through my Masters in Oriental Medicine, I can only hope that I will be able to deliver the same compassion to my patients as Bev granted me. She was always centered, focused, and relaxed: as a result, I drew from this and was able to focus on the receiving.
