Dr. Colton Oswald

Dr. Colton Oswald is the co-president of the ACATCM and a senior professor and practitioner.

Dr. Oswald set sail in his Chinese medicine journey more than 20 years ago and hasn’t looked back. He jointed ACATCM in 2001 where, at various times, he has taught and helped redevelop most of the courses in the curriculum. With active involvement in both the internal and external facets of the College, in 2013 he was made the co-president. Dr. Oswald also served as a director on the CAAA board where he contributed to changes to improve the governance of the profession.

Well known for his expertise in Chinese herbal medicine, Dr. Colton Oswald also has a special interest in the ancient classics of Chinese medicine and how to integrate their teaching into contemporary practice. Colton is a passionate professor and has presented to students and practitioners in both Canada and China.

‘Theory and practice are the same in theory but not in practice’ – Yogi Berra

Dr. Oswald takes this notion as a guiding principal. While exploring the rich academic tapestry of Chinese medicine Colton charts his course by what is effective in the clinic. A pragmatist, Colton feels that, while theory may be beautiful, it must bear fruit in the clinic. In his 20 years of practice Colton estimates that he has inserted nearly 1 million needles for the treatment of a wide variety of complaints.
