I grew up in Taiwan, in a family where Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques were applied as a way of life; for example, my father and brother used acupuncture and herbs to help many people. I saw how these techniques helped friends and strangers who would show their gratitude by returning with gifts such as home-cooked meals. I believe it was this early experience that led me to eventually leave a successful career so that I could study TCM.
In 2004 I received my professional designations as a Registered Acupuncturist and Registered TCM Practitioner after graduating from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Vancouver (ICTCMV)
I have attended countless seminars and studied under several world renowned teachers in the field. My practice is constantly evolving as I have the opportunities to work with my patients.
I continue to train with Balance System Acupuncture, the Tan Academy of Balance acupuncture in Vancouver and participate in professional study groups. I strongly believe that learning is an ongoing life-long process. I am fluent in Mandarin, English and Taiwanese.
