How did she get here?
Her Life journey started in Kenya where her Mother, Madala, would use Traditional Medicine offset by her Father, Konje, taking the family to see a Western Trained Doctor whenever anyone got sick. This approach was not unusual considering that their peers, her Uncle included, were Doctors in one field or another. Later in life Dr. Osano learned that her linage had their own practices based in Traditional Medicine. They used bitter herbs for digestive disorder, massages, and cupping, this all aligned with that she was studying.
Having perused a professional career in the fields of Business and Advertising in Kenya, health care was never in her in her field of vision until moving to America. While pregnant and dealing with a not so giving insurance company, she started to began the journey to find alternative ways to live a healthy life for her and her family. During this pursuit she discovered several modalities including Aromatherapy, yoga, juicing, herbal medicine and meditation.
She continued reading more about healing and kept on wondering why there was no healing but a system of health management, with new diseases coming up, cost of care rising up and more people being diagnosed with easily prevented diseases. Following her a lifetime of curiosity, she learned about Oriental Medicine, while studying Aromatherapy. Dr. Osano quickly fell in love with the practice and began her Doctors apprenticeship. The only thing more incredible than witnessing health transformations as an apprentice was realizing she had the very real privilege of sharing this gift with the world, Medicine akin to that of her childhood and at an affordable cost.
