Integrating Eastern & Western Medicine
During the last decade baby boomers have been facing unforseen health issues due to their hectic lifestyles.
As a result they have all been looking for solutions to their health problems that were not alleviated by Western surgery or
medications. There are many alternative ways of promoting good health which have peaked my interest in acupuncture.
He feels that acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine will serve a vital role in complementing the existing framework of healthcare, and hopes to share this knowledge with all who are interested. It is his on-going enthusiasm to further his studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine along with the latest acupuncture developments.
As Confucius says, "He who learns but does not think, is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger."
Dr. Leung is hopeful that his newly acquired knowledge of Eastern medicine will allow him to harmonize his learning and thinking into a more balanced approach to medicine.
