Corbin knew early - at age eight - that she wanted to dedicate her life to helping people heal and lead more optimal lives through spa and wellness. Now well-known and respected as a spa professional, she is also a noted Chinese medicine physician with a quarter-century of experience in the Holistic Health and Wellness field. She is nationally board certified in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, holds degrees in natural health sciences and as a doctor of oriental medicine.
