Renee Chan started her career as a graphic designer/art director and had worked in a number of advertising companies, both large 4A agencies as well as small local companies. After becoming sick every month during one of her stressful jobs, she became very interested in finding out the reasons for her declining health as well as how to become healthy again. Around the same time, she decided to pursue a career that would provide a nurturing, non-toxic environment, which grows with experience and maturity.
After her very last design job, she worked for a holistic doctor for two years, and discovered the joy of witnessing patients heal. During that time, she learned about Neurofeedback, BioCranial Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Naturopathic medicine, Guided Imagery and Vedic Astrology. She understands and believes that different modalities can work synergistically to the benefit of the patient.
Her decision to pursue a career in Chinese Medicine is a natural one, because Chinese Medicine is a medicine of the culture that she has affinity to, and it is also a wholistic medicine, which she believes in.
Education & Internship: Renee received her Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Apart from her internship at the ACTCM Community Clinic, she has also interned at the ACTCM Community Ear Clinic and the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic.
Internship in China: In addition, she has completed the Advanced Clinic Internship program at Zhejiang University of Chinese Medicine in Hang Zhou, China, where she studied with doctors specializing in Internal Medicine, Dermatology, Gynecology and Acupuncture.
TCM Dermatology: She is certified as a specialist in TCM Dermatology. This program is the first in the US, and was taught by Dr. Jialing Yu, who is a distinguished and well respect professor in the field of dermatology.
Nutritional Educator: Renee is also a graduate of Bauman College where she became a certified Nutritional Educator.
Cranial Sacral: She has completed The Upledger Institute's Craniosacral I course and is planning on attending Craniosacral II course.
She is constantly updating and enhancing her knowledge because she believes that this will benefit her patients tremendously.
Renee's background in Chinese culture has helped her tremendously in understanding the depths of Chinese Medicine. Along with her knowledge in other modalities, she is able to bring together what is most beneficial to her patients. She feels joy and honored in accompanying her patients in their healing journeys.
It would be my pleasure and honor to assist anyone who is interested in pursuing great health and leading a balanced and healthy way of living.
