Paul’s journey in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) began in 1986. He studied oriental science and philosophies under the direction of an elder Buddhist monk who was a master acupuncturist, special techniques of Japanese Shiatsu massage and highly esteemed for his work in TCM. It was in this Japanese monastery, the sacred Temple in Yokohama Japan, where Paul worked as an apprentice alongside his master. Together they worked on a voluntary basis, caring for and treating poor and elderly people. With his strong desire to help people in need and seeing the profound results TCM offered, Paul was encouraged to continue with his endeavors.
After many years of study in Japan and Korea, Paul relocated to Canada and formally pursued his career in TCM. Paul is now a fully licensed and Registered Acupuncturist and Herbalist of TCM in British Columbia. He has been an active member of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of BC and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Association of BC since 2005.
Although he treats a wide range of conditions from chronic pain to infertility, he has found his niche in the area of cosmetic and weight loss acupuncture along with herbal remedies.
Over the years, Paul’s treatment style has evolved as he strongly believes learning is a lifelong process. His treatments are well-rounded, using all means available to overcome barriers to his patients healing process, whether they are physical, energetic or spiritual. Paul firmly believes that healing is a co-creative process and works with patients to achieve their optimal health.
Paul is fluent in English, Korean, Japanese, and Spanish
