My journey began in early 1961, in the pursuit of knowledge in the discipline of Acupuncture when I travelled extensively to various Acupuncture institutes and hospitals in Hong Kong and various regions of China.
I graduated with my first Diploma in Acupuncture from Chinese Acupuncture and Cauterization Centre (Singapore 1968), under the Great Master Siao.
I then went on to receive my second Higher Diploma in Apprenticeship & Research from the Chinese Acupuncture from Chinese Acupuncture Institute (Hong Kong 1969).
Upon completion of my studies, I began to develop keen interest in the field of Taiji, Qigong Meditation, as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine and their applications in the modern medical practice.
Chinese Nature-Cure Institute
Chinese Nature-Cure Institute was established in 1969, with the goal of promoting the different Chinese ancient healing arts such as Qigong Meditation, Taiji, Qigong, Acupressure, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, as well as Food Cure Remedies.
Later in 1973, the Nature Cure and Acupuncture Society of Singapore, was established with the similar goals. From 1982 to 1998, I began the most epic journey of my life.
I travelled to the most remote places in China where acupuncture and TCM were practiced.
I stayed in small town and villages in every corners of China, learning pinnacle skills from 28 legendary old masters in the field of Acupuncture practices and methodology.
These trips included advance research studies on Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in prestigious TCM Universities in Shanghai, Beijing and Lanzhou.
I witnessed first hand how people in severe poverty is able to receive basic healthcare while travelling in these remote villages, sometimes staying for more than two months (towing my young children along).
Unlike modern medicines which requires sophisticated equipment supplemented by modern machinery, Acupuncture and TCM can prevail under appalling living conditions. It gave me even more motivation to understand more.
