During this process, he was taught traditional Chinese herbs, formulas, acupuncture, moxibustion, and tuina therapeutic massage as well as Western medical theory and practice in internal and surgical medicine. Aside from medicine, he is an accomplished teacher of martial arts, qigong, and meditation, having studied extensively with some of the world's top lineage grandmasters in the Chen style Tai Chi and Xinyi LiuHe internal systems for over 12 years.
