About Edwin Gastañaga, L.Ac.

I grew up in Peru near Machu Picchu in the region of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, where as a child, I used to follow the shamans and observe them. They used medicine from the earth to help people in a place where the nearest medical doctor was a full day away.

In school I studied Industrial Engineering and Fine Arts prior to my study of Oriental Medicine. Having a diverse background has enabled me to combine Arts and Science to create effective healing techniques.

Education Background:
• M.S. in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Samra University
• Acupuncture Orthopedics Certificate of Completion from Lerner
• Practices Master Tong’s Balancing Method
• Majored in Fine Arts at Long Beach City College
• Majored in Industrial Engineering from San Marcos University-Lima, Peru
