    Traditional Healing Heather Bruce

    Susun interviews Heather Bruce.
    Heather has been a student of acupuncture and natural healing since she started a mother's journey to discover how to NOT have her (now 40 year old, then a newborn) son descend into asthma and eczema like his father. (She won).
    Along the way she picked up classical acupuncture skills (and designed and taught undergraduate courses from 1981, leading into her post graduate mentoring), investigated many traditional forms of healing (initially Western herbs, nutrition from the East and the West, vibrational remedies, massage and allied techniques, and later on, many ways too overcome distortions in energy and thus form).
