We interviewed Celeste Homan, M.S., M.Ac., L.Ac., Assistant Professor in the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program and winner of the Faculty Research Poster Award at MUIH’s first Research Symposium, for her study using acupuncture as an alternative treatment for cystic acne. The study not only demonstrates successful symptom treatment, but rather explores critical thinking around patient healing and focuses on treating the whole person, not just a particular symptom.
We interviewed Steffany Moonaz, Ph.D., RYT 500, winner of MUIH’s first Excellence in Research and Scholarship Award, for her research on the effects of yoga practice for people with rheumatic diseases.
