I have had advanced training in China and interned at the University Hospital of Guanzhou, the University Hospital of Chengdu as well as in Nanjing. Knowledge and training in the Tung’s Extra Point system as well as Jin’s Three Point acupuncture therapy.
I have spent much of my extra time outside of clinical practice providing public education and promoting the true essence of Traditional Chinese Medicine to inform the public about the complete system of this energetic medicine. I participated in 13-part series called, “At Home with Herbs” which was aired on Knowledge Network and other TV stations where I provided information on specific topics related to Chinese medicine. I had also participated in assisting other doctors in China to edit, provide language assistance, wording and valuable suggestions to produce books for English speaking practitioners. Some of the publications printed are, “Essentials for the Clinical Practise of Acupuncture and Moxibustion”; “Collection of Papers for the 2nd International Congress of TCM”; and “Applied Medical Chinese Acupuncture Therapy”.
I have served as a Director on the Board of the TCM Association of BC and was actively involved politically with them from 1994 to 2009. I will continue to pursue advanced education to further assist in a blending of TCM with Western medicine diseases as well as providing more public awareness about the great benefit of this medicine.
