Tong Li and Kurt Wilhelm
Dr. Tong Li began her career in medicine in China, where she began medical school at age 15. Since then, she has practiced medicine in both China and the United States. She has spent the second half of her life in Western Medicine where she became board certified in Anesthesiology in the USA, completing her post-graduate training at the University of Arizona. Dr. Tong Li studied Traditional Chinese Medicine as part of the curriculum at medical school in China. From her dual medicinal pursuits, she has learned the importance and powerful impact that Eastern medicine can have on a person’s mind and body.
Her switch to incorporating Eastern medicine came when she accidentally sprained her ankle, and opted to use acupuncture to heal her ankle, instead of using ice and Ibuprofen, the usual choice. Half an hour later, her pain was completely gone! It had simply evaporated! This stunning experience sparked her interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and has since led her to have a positive impact on many lives on both sides of the globe in truly life changing ways.
In 2006, partnered with Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jose Robledo, she founded a med-spa to incorporate beauty treatment and a Holistic (acupunctural) approach to medicine. She has enjoyed her personal journey of beauty and health, and loves sharing her life changing message.
