I’m Eric Grey, and I am the founder of Chinese Medicine Central, among other things. This website has been running since 2006, and has gone through periods of intensive development followed by long, mostly silent pauses. That’s the nature of professional life, I suppose.
Currently, on the blog and elsewhere, you’ll find me weaving together philosophy, sociology, history, pop culture, technological how-tos, inspired rants, overly personal reflections and multi-media explorations as I investigate topics like:
- The wise use of technology by acupuncturists (and our patients)
- How to run an acupuncture clinic from vision to marketing to employees to business planning and absolutely EVERYTHING in between
- Issues in ethics including medical ethics, environmental ethics and especially the connections between the two
- The character, nature, history and future of the acupuncture profession in the US
- Musings coming from my classical Chinese medicine perspective especially around Chinese herbal formulas, growing Chinese herbs domestically and the fundamental science of this medicine
- How acupuncture and the wider field of holistic medicine intersect with various aspects of contemporary life including the economy, the Internet and urban development
You could say I have varied interests.
The most important things to see here on the site, other than the blog linked above are:
- The growing store of cheap, relevant content for acupuncture students and practitioners looking to make a living, and live a life, while practicing East Asian medicine
- The contact form, also located below, where you can make recommendations, ask questions, and otherwise interact with me
