Holly Guzmán has spent her entire adult life specializing in Chinese medicine, both clinically and in education. She graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture in 1980, and as part of the first graduating class from ACTCM in 1983, was one of the first to practice acupuncture legally in California. Guzmán continued on to a doctorate in 1988 through SAMRA, based on clinical study done in China and Japan. Since 1984, she has served as faculty at Five Branches University in both the master’s and doctorate programs. She also has a solid working background in naturopathy and western herbalism. With extensive studies, Guzmán has incorporated the wisdom of several styles: Kiiko Matsumoto’s acupuncture genius, Jeffrey Yuen’s authentic Daoism, Miriam Lee’s visionary approach, and Ted Kaptchuk’s reverence for humanity.
