Dr Leon Hammer

I was a newly graduated acupuncturist in 1982 in Australia.I attended a conference where an American Doctor Dr Leon Hammer was a keynote speaker.

His brilliant insight, his humility and his capacity to share his vision and experience of traditional Chinese medicine inspired me with a fire of hope for an integrated western health system that embraced the wisdom models of health care both eastern and western.

The intelligence of a system that addresses cause underpinning presenting symptoms makes extraordinary sense.Leon Hammer has contributed much to Chinese medicine in the west. I would have given a lot to be a student or apprentice of such an enlightened practitioner.
