More about Kasha
Kasha Yang is a registered acupuncturist and herbalist. She is the member of Dutch Association of Acupuncture (N.V.A.) and the member of China Association of Acupuncture and Moxibustion Abdominal Acupuncture Committee.
She was first introduced to AA in 2005 during a visit to China for a series of refresher courses.
When compared to the classical method of acupuncture, the benefits of AA are very clear. Abdominal Acupuncture shows quick health improvements, appears to be a more effective process and is experienced by patients as far less painful.
These facts were such an inspiration that Kasha decided to specialize in abdominal acupuncture and spend some time in China emerging her self in study and practice.
Upon her return to Amsterdam she started, together with her husband, her own acupuncture clinic ChinaMedic and has been successfully practicing Abdominal Acupuncture ever since.
