    It is rare to find an acupuncture mentor who not only achieves remarkable clinical results before your eyes, but who shares his immense knowledge with clarity, passion and kindness. I have had the privilege of studying under Richard Kwan both in the classroom, and in his actual clinical practice. He absorbs, integrates, and applies the wisdom of various acupuncture masters, blending the best of their approaches into his own unique style. The astounding effectiveness of his diagnosis, palpation, and needling must be seen to be believed. Richard is an incredible healer and teacher.
