Ryan Jaw (R.Ac.) 趙傳義
Ryan has always had a passion for helping others; from teaching young children to volunteering at GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre. He graduated from York University in Toronto with a Specialized Honours Degree in Kinesiology and Health Science. Since a young age Ryan has always been involved in many sports but mainly hockey and baseball. He has seen various types of injuries (soft tissue: muscles, ligaments, tendons, etc.) that have affected many athletes at different stages in their career and life after. Many injuries he had seen were treated with only Western medicine/therapies with little or no help and others with a combination of Western and/or Traditional Chinese Medicine which had great results. How could some tiny little needles and some glass cups help someone in pain? Ryan’s fascination with Chinese Medicine grew from there as he continued his education at the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver.
Ryan has been very fortunate to have many great teachers along his journey to becoming an acupuncturist and Dr. May Wang is clearly one of them. Dr. May Wang was his clinical instructor and helped him to where he is today. With pain and stress being one of the biggest problems in our society today he has seen and assisted Dr. Wang treat countless patients using acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, cupping, ear seeds, bleeding therapy and more. Acupuncture is great for treating pain but can help with many other problems as well; for more information please see the Acupuncture Services section for more detail.
In the summer of 2015 Ryan was intern at Renai Taipei City Hospital and a well known Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic in Taiwan known for treating Stroke, Dementia, Parkinson’s, and other severe chronic diseases. The knowledge and experience he gained has been monumental in progressing his passion and knowledge of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine techniques which will be carried on to treating his own patients. His vision for the future is to see Western and Eastern (Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture) medicine and professionals able to work in collaboration with each other as they each have their own unique roles in maintaining and living a healthy pain-free lifestyle.
