Through practicing the ancient art of Kung Fu and watching her mother incorporate herbal medicinals into daily life Dr Khalsa developed an interest in a lifestyle based on mind-body-soul from a young age.
She first encountered acupuncture through witnessing how this therapy helped her father’s health with Asthma and allergies. This exposure helped her decide to pursue a BSc in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) specialized in acupuncture at the University of Westminister. It was here that she had written a dissertation on the power of touch.
