Ronald E. Anderson, L.Ac.

Ronald has just come to us from Oakland, California. He brings with him a strong enthusiasm to share with fellow Southern New Englanders the healing powers of Traditional Chinese Medicine. His services include Acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, Nutritional Advice, and Tui Na. Ronald started his path on the healing arts with a Qi Gong class. From that first class a seed of interest grew until twelve years later he found himself to be a Diplomat in Oriental Medicine. This designation means that, Ronald is a nationally certified practitioner in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Ronald holds a MSTCM degree - Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The four-year professional degree curriculum in TCM includes approximately 3000 hours of didactic training in Chinese and Western Medicine and 1000 hours of clinical training. Students receive training in the following key areas: TCM diagnosis and treatment which include Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology, Tai Ji and Qi Gong, nutrition, and Western medicine including diagnosis and pharmacology. MSTCM degree is awarded after passing comprehensive examinations and completing a Master's thesis.
