About Eric Grey

Hi - I'm the founder of this site and the primary master of all functions here. When I'm not writing, you can find me reaching out to the Chinese Medicine community across the web and in my own backyard.

Additionally, I'm the founder of Watershed Wellness, a thriving local clinic in Southeast Portland in Oregon.
