Junko graduated from International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver where she completed the 4 year Practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine program . She has been interested in alternative health since childhood. Her grandmother used to pick dandelions and mugwort for cooking. Her father’s side of the family was fond of Traditional Chinese Medicine especially Moxibustion.
Junko is a certified fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM). She also completed touch for health kinesiology level 1 & 2 at M B H Kinesiology College in Osaka, Japan and Western Herbal Medicine Detoxification program . She is a certified therapist in the Preventive Medicine Health & Beauty Association of Tokyo.
After 5 years of being a co-owner of an international English school in Okayam a, Japan, Junko and her husband decided to raise their beautiful daughter in the nature of Canada. Being a mother of a toddler and a teenage home stay student at the same time as being a TCM student wasn’t easy but she enjoyed every aspect of her life with positive, calm energy and a hard working nature as she completed the 3 year acupuncturist program in 2 years.
The amazing gynecology class taught by Dr. Zhi Hong Huang solidified her career path of reproductive health as her focus. She recognizes that hormonal balance, timing, flow of Q i and blood, organ function and how everything works separately and together is at the core of the TCM treatment of reproductive health conditions. Making a family is the same as the universe of Yin-Yang which are opposite but complementary, interdependent, interconnected and interrelate to one another.
She practices Traditional Chinese Medicine with respect and gratitude, as a bridge between patients and the power of nature to bring balance back to the system, harmonize the spirit, and regain the trust of each persons natural healing power. She is delighted and honored to join such a talented and successful team at Yinstill Reproductive Wellness.
