Dr. Steve Jackowicz began his study of East Asia as an undergraduate at Harvard University. He then studied traditional East Asian Medicine at the Korea Modern School of Acupuncture and the Hand and Foot Acupuncture Institute in Seoul. During that time he further apprenticed in traditional physical manipulation and therapeutic breathing techniques. He then pursued a Master’s Degree at the New England School of Acupuncture. Dr. Jackowicz became fascinated with the divergence of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese medicine and studied for a Ph.D. at Boston University examining the historical evolution of East Asian Medicine. His research has taken him to China and Japan. Dr. Jackowicz has taught at Tufts University, Boston University, New England School of Acupuncture, and Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. He has published on East Asian Medicine, Daoism, and history. He currently serves as faculty in the History Department of the University of Bridgeport.
