We are sad to announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Beverly Heller, one of the most beloved and senior practitioners of Classical Five-Element Acupuncture. Beverly began her studies with Professor J.R. Worsley in 1973. She was a pioneer in our profession and was involved in the legalization of acupuncture in California. She taught at acupuncture schools across the country and was a faculty member of The Institute of Classical Five-Element Acupuncture Inc. in Santa Monica, CA. She maintained a practice in Los Angeles for decades. Beverly's friendship, love, humor, dedication, and skill as a healer continue to inspire us all.
