R.TCMP, R.AC, Clinical Supervisor & Instructor

Cindy was initially graduated in the economics B.A. program, then found her biggest passion in the Traditional Chinese Medicine through her work as the receptionist of a clinic. So she started the journey from working and learning under an apprenticeship before the college regulation, and later on went back to Xiamen China, studied very intensively and gained a diploma in Acupuncture and Moxibustion. Then she worked as a Registered Acupuncturist in Ontario for two years. 

During those two years of practise, she strongly realized that a combination of treatment protocol could have better outcome than just applying acupuncture alone. Then she continued her adventure on TCM again---went back to study in Ontario College of Traditional Chinese Medicine after giving birth to her baby girl, got her diploma of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner three years later, and passed the regulated exam in Ontario. Cindy believes to look into big picture but don’t miss small details. Always has to learn from real cases and tries to get the root cause behind the scattered pieces of details.
