President's Message

President's Message

2018 was a great year! 2019 is shaping up to be even better!

Last year saw us become the Education Center for SNAPTCM (Sino North American Partnership for Traditional Chinese Medicine), an historic partnership with China’s state administration for Chinese Medicine and the Ministry of Technology. Through SNAPTCM the ACATCM participated in the introduction of Heat Sensitive Moxibustion to North America. Dr. Chen Rixin, a top-tier doctor and presenter in China, developed this unique technique.

In the first of many efforts to bring the best of the East to the West, Dr. Chen honored us by travelling to Canada twice for workshops held in Calgary and Edmonton. These workshops saw over 100 practitioners and students trained in Level 1 of Heat Sensitive Moxibustion and over 500 people received treatments at these events. Planning is under way for him to come back and teach level 2 in 2019. Our very own Dr. Dennis Lee acted as translator and is now certified to teach the Level 1 curriculum. Dr. Lee made several trips around Canada to introduce people to Heat Sensitive Moxibustion.

We are excited to announce the 1st Annual SNAPTCM Expo scheduled to begin April 4th, 2019. Aside from educational content and presentations we will showcase a number of vendors displaying TCM products and technology not yet seen in the North American markets. Stay tuned for further details as they unfold.

Congratulations are in order for our graduating class of 2018. Their hard work is paying off; all of them passed the Pan Canadian written exam and the stringent Alberta Acupuncture Points exam. These exceptional people are well on their way to becoming exceptional practitioners.

Despite our evolution and expansion our mission at the ACATCM remains the same: to provide the highest quality education in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and to support our students to become competent, successful health care professionals.

As the president of ACATCM, I invite you to join our ACATCM family. Be part of something special and help us to carry on our tradition of excellence!
