Her first encounter with natural medicine was in Vietnam, where she studied as a university student. She was moved by the fact that people were living without modern medicine and using herbs and massage, which led her to pursue a career in natural therapy. After studying aromatherapy at ITHMA, London with Gabriel Mojay, she studied reflexology in South Africa and Vietnam, and also became a certified acupuncturist in Japan.
