About Franco

My interest in Chinese medicine developed from a long standing interest in Chinese culture and language.  In early adulthood, I took classes in tai chi (the slow-moving martial art originating in China) and was amazed at how such a gentle exercise could be so beneficial to one's health and sense of well being.  A few years later, that same interest led me to work as an ESL teacher at language schools in Taiwan and mainland China during which time I had the opportunity to study basic Mandarin as well as travel extensively throughout China.


A strong desire to help others, along with my own positive experiences receiving treatments eventually led me to study Chinese medicine formally.  I attended two TCM colleges in Victoria and Vancouver and graduated with a four-year Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner diploma. My extensive clinical training included a six-week externship treating mental health patients at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria.  


I see the mind and body as one integrated whole, and I feel that health challenges may be due to any combination of physical and mental-emotional factors. I am passionate about Chinese medicine and believe it can be an excellent complementary therapy to conventional Western medicine and other therapies.
