About Cheryl Boston
Cheryl Boston is a California Licensed Acupuncturist who holds a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine. She is a graduate of AIMC in Berkeley, and studied traditional Chinese gynecology with Master Hua Ling Xu, one of the best teachers in the field. Cheryl also gained a deeper understanding of the spiritual aspects of Chinese medicine while studying Qi Gong with the late Suzanne Friedman.
Cheryl states, “My heart is completely drawn to helping people heal physically and emotionally. I know that the body, the mind, and the spirit are all connected. When healing occurs in all three, life tends to just flow with a sense of grace and ease. I am blessed with the gift of being able to intuitively connect with patients, so that they can feel that flow, and that they are comfortable from the moment we meet. Thirty years ago I began a deep search into the natural wonders of the body, the mind, and the spirit. This search led me into a comprehensive study of both American and Chinese, acupuncture, Chinese nutrition, and psychology. It is truly a wonderful experience to be a Mom. It is my commitment to do everything in my power, from all I have learned, to make that experience come true for each patient I see.”
