A Decade of Sticking Needles and More

by - Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I've always been intrigued with acupuncture. I'm happy that I am introduced to the best practitioner here in the Philippines.

Dr. Philip Nino Tan-Gatue recently celebrated his 10th year of being one of the leading experts in Traditional and Chinese medicine. Having studied in China to learn all about the nitty gritty of acupuncture, Doc Phillip as he is fondly called, remains candid in answering questions thrown at him about acupuncture. He is able to relate acupuncture in a more modern manner than his contemporaries making it easier for people who have a fear of needles to understand and comprehend how it can be of benefit to them.

Dr. Philip Nino Tan-Gatue studied in the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and gained a lot of experience in the Xuanwu Municipal Hospital and in the First Municipal Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He has also attended and gained a lot of insightful knowledge through the lectures given by Andrew Wu, L.Ac, Giovanni Maciocia, and other experts in the field.

Currently, Doc Philip maintains a private practice while teaching in his alma mater and in the University of the East. He also appears frequently on radio and television to talk about Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. He is a faculty member at the University of the Philippines College of Medicine, practicing at the Philippine General Hospital and others.  He is also currently section head of Acupuncture Services at the Center for Wellness and Aesthetics at the Medical City.

Happy 10th Anniversary Doc Phillip!
