Philip is a member of the New Zealand register of Acupuncturists. He has 18 years clinical practice including one year teaching English and post-graduate studying in central China at the Wuhan Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital.
In 2017 Philip completed his Masters of Acupuncture (at the New Zealand School of Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine). This was 3 years part-time study. The first 2 years included muscular skeletal topics, while the 3rd year Philip focused completed a research study which was presented in his thesis on the topic of mentoring in the Acupuncture profession.
As yet New Zealand doesn't have an official mentoring program for Acupuncturists. The needs and expectations of new graduate Acupuncturists in New Zealand were identified while interviews with mentors, mentoring program designers and trainers in Australia and the UK were exploring for their processes, opinions and experiences. The thesis forms a guidance for the New Zealand Acupuncture profession. Click here to view pdf of thesis.
He is currently on the faculty at the NZ School of Acupuncture and TCM teaching TCM theory, diagnostics and clinical supervision.
His initial four years of full-time study was completed in 2001 and upgraded with another year (part-time study) to a BHSc.Acup. at the NZ School of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture. This involved acupuncture, Chinese herbs (patent formulas), Western anatomy, physiology and basic pharmacology.
“It is my commitment to acknowledge both TCM [Acupuncture] alongside Western Medicine and other effective health modalities and how we can best work together in the course of your recovery to better health”.
