Fion Fion Chou, RAc, RTCMP. Teaching Assistant

Fion-2-headshot.jpgI have been practicing acupuncture since 2004. In 2018, I came across Balance System Acupuncture. Leading up to this for the better part of 15 years, I had practiced Japanese Meridian therapy. Though I had good results, it was love at first sight with Balance System Acupuncture! I was very grateful to be among Cohort 1 at Langara College and the Balance System Acupuncture Certificate, taught by Dr. Sonia Tan. Nothing brings me more pride and joy when patients experience immediate results. I am honoured to be a teaching assistant in Langara College’s program, and also with the Tan Academy of Balance Inc.
