Krystal Pearson L.Ac. was in Bali for the first two weeks of August 2010 treating local Balinese women and children. She received advanced training on specific OB/GYN and Pediatric treatments according to Traditional Chinese Medicine such as Shon-Ni-Shin. Shon-Ni-Shin is a Japanese technique using various tools to stimulate the acupuncture points and energetic meridians. It is a great treatment for children because it is a form of acupressure; thus, the skin is not punctured with a needle. The OB/GYN treatments focused on menstrual and pregnancy related issues such as morning sickness, edema and hypertension. The pediatric treatments focused on fevers, respiratory infections, digestive problems, hyperactivity and autism. She also studied acupuncture, herbal and homeopathic treatments for postpartum ailments such as lactation problems, pain and depression.
Krystal Pearson graduated from a nine month Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Program in Los Angeles at Yoga West in June of 2011. She graduated from Level 2 Mind & Meditation Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training in July of 2014. She incorporates the techniques & technologies from the ancient practice of Kundalini Yoga such as breath work (pranayama), yoga asanas (postures), and yogic diet into her Traditional Chinese Medicine practice.
Krystal travelled to an ashram in Rishikesh, India for a couple of weeks in November of 2011 for a Kundalini yoga festival celebrating 11.11.11.
