About Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine

There are few acupuncturists who are specialists. The need to treat patients as whole people makes specialization difficult. Burton makes an ongoing effort to refine his knowledge of medicine in his studies with Dr. Tran Viet Dzung, a world famous acupuncturist from France. Dr. Tran was a long-term collaborator with Dr. Nguyen Van Nghi, a seminal figure in bring acupuncture to the west.

Dr.Tran teaches the concept of the fusion of western and eastern medicines, of understanding eastern qualitative concepts through the fantastic quantitative observations of western science. His seminars consist of examining illnesses first from the western perspective, then creating a comparison with the eastern approach.

Burton has completed the following  courses with Dr. Tran:

Cardiology- heart system (40 hrs)
Endocrinology- hormones (40 hrs)

Patients who continue with acupuncture “tune-ups” several times per year, after help with more severe issues, report that they feel better, get sick less often, and maintain a greater sense of well-being. Your body benefits from a tune-up just like your car benefits from a regular oil change and tune-up. The most elegant practice of medicine is prevention of illness.
