About Robert Keller, L. Ac

My study of Chinese medicine began in 1980.  My particular interest is Classical Chinese Medicine – the study and practice of Chinese medicine as outlined nearly 2500 years ago, according to the principles and general understanding of ancient Chinese medicine and philosophy.

People’s health issues are typically complex, but they are rarely complicated.  Chinese medicine provides the knowledge and methodology to deal with complex disease in a gentle, direct and effective manner.  It is a complete medical system, one that deals with all issues of health and disease from birth to death. Chinese medicine provides the tools to help individuals understand their illness and their relationship to it, and to incorporate directed self-care in addition to therapeutic treatment.

My job and responsibility is to deliver Chinese medicine in this way, without alteration, as it has been taught and practiced for over two millennia.
