Ron Lim first became interested in Chinese medicine while watching a prudent Chinese physician at work in the 1960s. He was fortunate to learn from him well into the 70s.
Ron finally took up a formal study of acupuncture in 1975 and received certification in January 1976. While practising acupuncture, he went on to an advanced course in 1978 and 1979 that included the acupuncture developed by Reinhold Voll in Germany.
On 25 April 2001, he obtained full registration as an acupuncturist from the Singapore Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Practitioners Board. He is also a permanent member of the Singapore Acupuncture Association.
Ron treats patients regularly and is presently looking at the theory and practice of acupuncture according to the ten celestial stems and twelve terrestrial branches.
He prefers to use point selection methods that involve points only at or below the elbow and knee.
He is receptive to other forms of complementary medicine so long as they benefit the person.
Despite a busy schedule, he takes time off to attend conferences on acupuncture, TCM, anti-ageing medicine and other medical topics of common concern.
