The charismatic author of Reflections of the Moon on
Water brings her years of experience in the healing wisdom
of Traditional Chinese Medicine to show how Western women can
achieve lifelong health, beauty and wellness.

pursuit of beauty extends to lotions, potions and the surgeon''s

health and well-being.

from her TCM practice. She also covers the fundamentals of beauty,
preventing and treating skin damage, caring for sensitive skin, the

skin problems, acne in adolescence and beyond, rosacea, eczema,
allergies and rashes, skin cancer, wrinkles.

TCM and traditional treatments for a wide variety of conditions,
including recipes for salves and infusions that you can make at
