Topic: Dry Needling – Anatomical Acupuncture – Contemporary Acupuncture – Medical Acupuncture: Can Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncturists compete in this new world of Needle users?

Language: English

Speaker: Dr. John Stan


Speaker’s Brief Bio:

Dr. John Stan has been practicing TCM for 30 years. He participated in the early years while growing his private practice, in professional acupuncture and TCM organizations. The work of these early organizations contributed to the recognition of TCM and acupuncture as health professions within British Columbia in 1996. He also founded Eastern Currents Ltd in 1995 with the mandate of importing and distributing quality acupuncture and professional TCM herbal products. Eastern Currents has grown to be one of Canada’s largest importers/distributors of prepared herbal medicines, acupuncture, and clinic supplies across Canada.  Dr. Stan was the co-developer of the world’s first eco-friendly acupuncture needle called Acufast, which was launched in Canada this year.   Dr. Stan has also been involved in the Tri-Continental TCM committee which has members from various TCM associations around the world. The goal for this committee has been to establish consistent and clear messaging about the Acupuncture and TCM profession so that it is appropriately differentiated from other health practices using needles.



This one and half hour talk will summarize the current situation of allied health practitioners using filiform needles in their practice and discuss how we as profession can respond to the challenges of increased competition.

This discussion will take a solution oriented, inclusive approach that focuses on what makes us different, how can we use modern terminology to strengthen our traditional concepts,

and how we can position our profession to be a relevant player in today’s health system.

语言: 英文

演讲者:Dr. John Stan






John Stan博士从事中医研究已有30年。在早期的职业生涯中,他从事私人针灸和中医组织工作,并发展了自己的私人诊所。这些早期的工作有助于1996年在不列颠哥伦比亚省将TCM和针灸确认为卫生专业。他还于1995年成立了Eastern Currents Ltd,其任务是进口和分销优质针灸和专业的TCM草药产品。 Eastern Currents已发展成为加拿大最大的草药,针灸和诊所用品进口商/分销商之一。 Stan博士是全球首款环保针灸针Acufast的共同开发者,该针灸针于今年在加拿大推出。斯坦博士还参与了delta中医药委员会,该委员会的成员来自世界各地的中医药协会。该委员会的目标是就针灸和中医专业建立一致而清晰的信息,以使其与使用针头的其他健康做法相区别。
