A number of years ago I received an acupuncture treatment in Vancouver that seemed miraculous. I had suffered for months. This successful treatment instilled me with great faith in TCM and the desire to learn this incredible art of healing. Shortly after I ended up moving to Chnia where I spent 4 years. During my time there I embraced the Chinese culture becoming a disciple of Taiji Quan and competing in it. Upon returning to Canada and Nova Scotia, I was pleased to see that Acupuncture was becoming an accepted and sought after treatment for a number of various ailments and preventative measures. Disease prevention is another key in my decision-making process as to why I enrolled at CCATCM. I hope to learn and in turn educate by example to prevent as much suffering as I can and to inspire the desire for well being.
