Thank you for visiting my

about page

to learn more about me and what I do!

I have been blessed to help patients with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine (TCM) since 2005.

In 2001, I had a “light bulb” moment to study Chinese medicine. It was the convergence of a few key factors that led to my decision to study this amazing medicine. The combination of my exposure to Chinese culture through the martial arts, my personal interest in health and wellness, and my desire to help others, ultimately set me down this path.

I graduated from the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACATCM) in 2005. After this I apprenticed with the late Dr. David Chu for 1 year, where we would see 20-30 patients a day 5 days a week. I was able to learn a lot from Dr. Chu, and I am grateful for my time in his clinic.

Since then I have accumulated 18 years of experience as a practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, both in Canada and Israel.

I have focused in on using Balance Method Acupuncture made famous by Dr. Richard Tei Fu Tan, and Chinese herbal medicine as taught by the renowned Dr. Jimmy Chang.

In the summer of 2020 I joined the Committee for Complaints and Competency for our governing college (CAA), and served a 2 year term. It was an honor to help ensure proper standards of practice were being met in the acupuncture profession.

Aside from this, I am a proud husband and father. My wife and I have 4 young ones keeping us busy and bringing light into our lives.

I also served as co-president for my synagogue in Calgary for 3 years, and then afterwards held the position of past president on the executive board.

In August of 2022 my wife and I realized our dream of making Aliyah to Israel, and are now busy establishing life here, and adjusting to being home!

I certainly look forward to having you in the clinic, and working together towards better health.
