Born in a family of generations of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) doctors and educators, I have long been pondering around the relations among patients,doctors, diseases, struggles and the nature. While the modern science and technology have greatly improved life expectancy and eradicated many disastrous plagues, much more areas remain unknown. Even worse, many chemical centered medications bring up severe side effects, sometimes fatal or irreparable.
To some extent, the Conventional Western Medicine side effects are rooted in its philosophy, Mechanism, which focuses on the disease, instead of the patient. On the contrary, TCM philosophy – Vitalism, focuses on the patient, believing in balanced energy within human body, harmony between mind and body, and unity with the Mother Nature. With TCM, the healing process is not about the doctor diagnosing the disease, followed by the chemicals fighting against bacteria. It’s more about the TCM doctor teaming up with the patient, helping the patient regain balance of energy, guiding the patient toward mind and body harmony, and celebrating the unity of healthy elements.

As I am pursing the highest degree of TCM, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, at the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine, acupuncture has gone beyond my profession, and become my passion. I look forward to each and every single curing day with my patients.
