The discussion covers topics such as the importance of humility, the transformative power of treating without judgment, cultivating one’s spirit as a healer, and understanding the interconnected nature of our wellbeing. Ann also introduces her work at the Classical Medicine Academy, aimed at fostering a deeper connection and understanding of classical acupuncture practices among practitioners. The conversation highlights the potential of acupuncture to elicit healing by focusing on underlying conditions and the energetic balance within the body, fundamentally advocating for a wisdom-driven approach to health and healing in the 21st century.
