Public lecture: Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Well Being

24 January 2013

Date: 20 February 2013 6.00-7.30pm

Guest Speaker: Dr Lynda Zhou

Traditional Chinese acupuncture has been used in the treatment of illness and disease for more than 2,000 years in China. This makes it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world today. It is still commonly practiced and officially recognized and credentialed in China today, alongside Western biomedicine. Along with Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture has increasingly becoming popular in the Western countries in the past decade. However, there are many myths around acupuncture and very few people understand how acupuncture actually works.

This free lecture will introduce you to the ancient philosophy and principles of Chinese acupuncture. In addition, Dr Zhou will have an acupuncture demonstration, and audience will also have opportunity to ask questions.
