Traditional Chinese Medicine
Jacob’s passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on his study of an ancient philosophy in far east Asia. Initially Jacob was teaching at a university and then he began his acupuncture practice at a non-profit organization as a volunteer after finishing the acupuncture course at the Gudang Institute, in Seoul Korea in the early 2000s. Jacob then came to Canada in 2010 at which point he completed the traditional Chinese medicine course at the PCU College of Holistic Medicine.
Jacob believes in the idea of traditional medicine that is based on balancing and self-healing of the human body. Jacob uses acupuncture needles as the primary healing source. However, Jacob also uses practices such as Moxibustion, Tuina or Meridian massage, Cupping, Guasha, Herbal decoctions, Meditation, Daoist exercises, and certain martial arts moves as part of the rehab process.
Jacob’s practice covers all lines of diseases that traditional medicine has served from a common cold to more complicated conditions like anxiety or mental challenges. Recently, he has been growing more interest in wellness itself, detoxification, rejuvenation and so on.
Jacob lives in the Willoughby community and believes in providing care and sharing his experience to the residents of the Langley region. You may even find him passing by you on the local trails.
