After over 20 years in western medicine, initially as an MD in Mexico and later participating in the intriguing pharmaceutical industry, Cristina Torres was shocked to witness the expanding and ever-increasing epidemic proportions of obesity, diabetes, and cancer. Cristina wanted to work closely with patients to support their healing with a virtually no drugs approach and to help them to prevent chronic illness. To do so, she earned a master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Pacific College in Chicago. Cristina Torres has now been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than eight years in the Chicago area and keeps enhancing her knowledge and expertise to support her patients.
As a clinic supervisor, she enjoys sharing her experience, innovative techniques, and integrative way of thinking with students and interns.
