Big Tree School of Natural Healing"Words cannot describe what I felt the very first moment I started the class. Cindy has a gift for breaking down such an amazing subject, that can be complex and hard to follow--with so much history behind it. I have been looking for a class like the Guide to the 12 Meridians for a long time. There are some classes out there but none seem to fit with a caring, funny, and profound love for what is TCM, like this one." - Johanne G.
