Who are the authors?


This in not your typical Traditional Chinese Medicine foundations book! Dr. Diana Tong Li and Dr. Franklyn Shi Chen have been studying, practicing, and teaching Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than forty years and now they have translated their extensive knowledge for English-speaking audiences.

As founders of the Canadian College of Acupuncture & TCM, Dr. Li and Dr. Chen are world leaders in bringing TCM to the West. They have dedicated their careers to teaching TCM to English-speaking students, and this book reflects their passion, excellence, and experience.

Most TCM textbooks are boring, black-and-white, tomes with no life. This book is alive with colorful pictures, demystifying the basic tenants of TCM in a way that’s accessible to everyone.

It’s packed with informative graphics, time-tested knowledge, and writing that makes TCM theory come to life. It’s a superb teaching and clinical tool, proven effective by thousands of students and patients.

All of our courses and textbooks are faithfully derived from real lesson plans used at the Canadian College of Acupuncture & TCM in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Our expert instructors are some of the world’s leaders in TCM education, who have dedicated their careers to natural healing and bringing alternative medicine to the West.
