Here is a trip down memory lane and a fun fact that many of you do not know:Β this is the first video that I ever worked on for Evidence Based Acupuncture!

It is a pleasure for me to share this nostalgic moment with you: Kath and Mel asked me to take the full video they recorded for EBA and create a shorter version of around 10 minutes with the key points from the full interview.
