About the Event
Peace , I’m Joy Rosa (MAcM). This past decade has been a very sweet journey into the history and, application of Indigenous East Asian Medicine. I have had unique experiences as a patient, student, teacher, herbal pharmacist, and Director of Operations, while working with Chinese medicine. I’ve enjoyed connecting my own Afro-Indigenous roots (Honduras) to the classics of Chinese Medicine and in my own healing journey. I’ve had the honor of working with hundreds of patients while an intern for 5 years, helping them with pain management, substance overuse and abuse, mental health, fertility, neurological and metaphysical dis-eases. I enjoy the co-creative space made during treatments, as we empower each other through organic medicine. When I’m not practicing medicine with my mini light sabers (acupuncture needles), I love collecting and listening to records, stone medicine, and writing.
It’s my hope to help make this medicine accessible to everyone, especially in the Triad, and we’ve been fundraising for a mobile clinic. Help us meet our goal and make access to natural medical care possible:
