About Charlotte Sobeck
Arriving at her passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine was a winding road for Charlotte, who first worked many years as a local and state government consultant and paralegal for an Austin law firm, McGinnis, Lochridge and Kilgore. While working in the legal field, Charlotte received a bachelors degree from the University of Texas in Photojournalism. She wrote for Tejas at UT and exhibited her photographs locally for years. She also taught photography in an after school enrichment program at Zavala Elementary.
After graduating from UT, Charlotte sought relief for allergies and asthma that had troubled her since childhood. Impressed by the quick and deep healing from TCM treatments, Charlotte began to independently study Traditional Chinese Medicine and soon decided to attend graduate school to become a TCM practitioner. In this field, Charlotte returns to a lifetime passion for healing which has been a part of her since childhood when she often rushed to the aid of an injured friend or family member with a caring touch, a plant poultice or home cooked remedy. Charlotte enjoys educating people in the vital role they play in their own health, the importance of a local/seasonal diet, good nutrition and a healthy way of living. Through their own dedication to a healthy lifestyle and Charlotte’s guidance, patients can experience true optimal and vibrant health.
