Hello, my name is Gina VanWingerden. I am a wife and dog-mom to our Leonberger, Eve. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, gardening and enjoying this beautiful life God has given me.
I am a Certified Fengyang Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner. This form of TCM dates back 1,750 years. I was taught by Dr. Ming Jie Wu, a 20th generation TCM practitioner and QI Gong Master. I met Dr. Wu through a friend when I was diagnosed with asthma at the age of 38. I had been on steroids and inhalers for a few years but was still having alarming episodes. Dr. Wu told me to stop all dairy; “You stop dairy, you stop wheezing” he taught me. I stopped all dairy immediately and have not had an asthma attack since (except for the few times I accidentally ingested dairy, which made me even more invested and intrigued with TCM. It was WORKING! Being off all medications felt so good! I wanted to learn how I could help people using these modalities and change their life as much as mine had changed. My goal is to find the root cause of illness or injury, not medicate a symptom.
I use Tui Na acupressure, Fengyang qi gong, Chinese herbal formulas, long distance consultations and other modalities to balance the body’s energy to start healing. I am certified in Tui Na, Cupping, Gua Sha, Tong Ren Energy Therapy, Chinese Herbology, Fengyang Qi Gong Instructor, Quantum Energy, and Apprentice of TCM. I am also a Certified American Heart Association CPR Instructor. I have been a member and Vice President of the Somers Fire Department for 12 years and I am a National Certified Emergency Medical Technician. If you or someone you know would like to learn more, please explore my website Gina VanWingerden and reach out to me. I’d love to help you be your best self.
