Detractors of traditional Chinese Medicine usually say it does not work because it has no scientific proof, and research cannot be done to demonstrate its efficacy. However, Jim Fitzpatrick, acupuncturist and TCM practitioner, will show you otherwise. Jim Fitzpatrick completed his clinical doctorate in traditional Chinese medicine at Yo San University, California, USA, where he wrote his thesis on TCM Research Methodology. Jim will be discussing his findings and start a dialogue on how TCM efficacy can be verified on an evidence-based method.
