Acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist and massage therapist Sik Chi Stanley Chan is a native Hong Kong who moved to the United States in 1996. He received his Bachelor of Science in Oriental Medicine (2000) and Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (2001) at Bastyr University, one of a mere seven naturopathic medical schools accredited by the U.S. Department of Education and an institution recognized as a pioneer in the field.As a licensed Washington State East Asian Medicine Practitioner, Stanley began practicing in Seattle back in 2002 after graduation and specializes in Chinese acupuncture, herbs, and both Chinese (Tui Na) and Swedish massage. In addition, he holds national board certification as a Diplomate of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology (NCCAOM) - a mark of excellence and integrity in the field of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
In addition, Stanley worked with Hoy Ping Yee Chan, Seattle author and acupuncturist, as well as several other expert collaborators, to compile and translate documents for the book "Acupuncture for Stroke Rehabilitation - Three Decades of Information in China (Blue Poppy Press)." Published in June 2006, the manuscript draws from scores of clinical trials to analyze evidence for the effective use of acupuncture in stroke treatment. "Acupuncture for Stroke Rehabilitation" now serves as a clinical reference book for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine practitioners everywhere.
Stanley's main focus revolves around the use of acupuncture, massage and herbology to tackle health issues and manage pain, approaching treatment of the human body from a holistic perspective. In accordance with Traditional Chinese Medicine, he addresses both the symptoms and the root causes of a condition and bases treatment on the stage of the condition rather than using a "cure-all" solution.
