I have been a practitioner of Chinese medicine for almost forty years now. I am also a historian of medicine, which has helped me to understand why Chinese medicine has developed the way it has over the last two millennia. I thus bring a unique perspective to the practice and teaching of Chinese medicine that I seek to express through the concept of meta-practice.
