Against this backdrop of searching for meaningful ways to help people live a healthy balanced life and coupled with an attraction to ancient Chinese thought, the acupuncture world became the obvious career path.
Having the opportunity to study under Daniel Deriaz at the start of my academic career introduced me to the various types of acupuncture that existed and opened my eyes to the limitless possibilities.
Upon completion of my formal acupuncture training I went on a quest to learn and acquire as many different styles and techniques that I could. This ranged from Worsley style 5 element, to Manaka Japanese style acupuncture, to Master Tung acupuncture, to Korean Sa’am 4 needle technic, and finally to Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan and his balance method. It was with Dr. Tan that I was able to find a common thread between these different styles which allowed me to combine them into practical clinical treatments.
