Acupuncture Relief Mission to Philippines

On behalf of NAFCON (National Alliance for Filipino Concerns), Living Room Acupuncture has sent one of its own, Paul Wang, on an acupuncture relief mission to Tacloban, Philippines from June 23-28. Tacloban was one of the worst hit cities in last November’s Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), which took 7,000 to 30,000 lives, according to official government or international NGO estimates, respectively. Additionally, hundreds of thousands of survivors are displaced from adequate home, nutrition and livelihood due to the destruction.

Paul will be living among these impoverished but resilient communities (barangays) and volunteering to treat local residents for pain management, arthritis, digestive issues, acute/chronic asthma, post-traumatic stress disorders, vision problems, etc. He has also been requested to train local medical workers to apply the Balance Method of Dr. Richard Tan. This is the unique system of acupuncture our practitioners offer at Living Room Acupuncture. [click to continue…]

Last weekend, Paul and Faye went to San Diego and graduated as Certified Bazi Practitioners. They also took a side trip with their colleagues Philip Tan and Jeremy Gilsoul from Aspire Wellness:

Recently, I traveled to San Diego, California, the home of my Shifu 師父 (a term to describe both mentor and father-figure) — world-renown Dr. Richard Tan. My Shifu is responsible for changing many aspects of my life, from my understanding and practice of Acupuncture to my patient treatments. This trip was to complete a years-long study of Bazi (pronounced bah-tze). [click to continue…]
