Stefan, RAc, BTCM, BSc is originally from Taiwan; he and his family immigrated to Canada when he was 16 years old. Following his move to Canada he attended Concordia University in Edmonton and finished with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.
Stefan then went to Shanghai and studied at the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). During his summer and winter school breaks Stefan would practice at the Wen- Chian TCM Clinic in Taiwan. After he graduated Stefan continued his clinical practice in Taiwan and Shanghai, China.
Returning to Canada, Stefan then decided to focus on acupuncture getting his licensing from the College of TCM Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Colombia. He is now a Registered Acupuncturist.
Stefan is fluent in English, Mandarin, and Taiwanese Chinese.
Some may ask: why did you choose to study Traditional Chinese Medicine?
While attending University, Stefan suffered an injury during one of his basketball games. As time passed, not only did the pain increase but it also started to affect his day-to-day activities. Stefan tried many treatment methods; however, the pain did not subside.
One afternoon, Stefan felt an enormous amount of low-back pain and decided to give acupuncture a try. After a few treatments, not only did Stefan feel fully recovered from his injury, he also found his health vastly improved and he felt healthier than he had prior to his injury.
This was the turning point that inspired him to start his journey of becoming a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Stefan is now accepting new patients on Tuesdays and Saturdays. He is offering a complimentary 20 minute consultation to meet with him and discuss the benefits of acupuncture.
