My interest in integrative medicine was a natural outgrowth of being a martial arts student, which I began at age eight. Over time, I also learned Chinese philosophy, medical theory, and practical applications for promoting health and well-being – including cultivating our energetic body (“Qi”). Although not recognized as a biological system by conventional medicine, as a martial artist and a physician, I have experienced, both personally and professionally, how cultivating this life force confers health benefits.
