    About Suzanne Robidoux

    Dr. Suzanne Robidoux has lived in China and Taiwan for the last 17 years studying with various masters with a focus on classics and clinical practice. She started by spending three years in the south of Taiwan to master mandarin while learning with masters. Then she moved to Nanjing and completed her Ph.D. in acupuncture at the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine in 2007. During her doctorates, she focused her studies and research on treating neurological disorders and psychological disorders as well as severe depression. One of these masters was Dr. Lu Qian at the Neurological Hospital (direct lineage of doctor Jiao Shu Fa). During her apprenticeship with Dr. Lu, Suzanne learned the most effective ways to treat severe cases of post-stroke coma, paralysis, hemiplegia, multiple sclerosis, Meniere’s diseases and so on. Over 90% of the patients would receive cranial acupuncture with body acupuncture. The second master, Dr. Tao Kun, is famous for his needling technique and his moxibustion techniques and efficacy on post-stroke paralysis and various musculoskeletal diseases. Suzanne came to Beijing in 2007 and worked with several masters all over China to bring their life’s work to the printing press and make the knowledge available to the West. She translated and edited over 20 professional Chinese medical textbooks related to acupuncture and Chinese medicine, during which she had the chance to work with Dr. Shi Xuemin, specialist in neurological disorders and famous for getting the best results with his needling technique. In the West, he is known to be the treating doctor from Tianjin in the documentary “9000 Needles”. Suzanne is now the chief acupuncturist of the Neurological and Post-Stroke Department at the Yanda Health City in Beijing. She also works at the Suicide Prevention Center in Beijing to contribute to the benefit of society providing acupuncture treatment severe cases of depression and suicidal tendencies. On her free time she continues to research classical texts such as the Zhou yi and the Zhenjiu Dacheng as well as the Shang Han Lun and Jin Gui Yao Lue.
