Gerry became interested in Chinese Medicine after witnessing his martial arts teachers treating students with tui-na, herbal medicine, acupuncture and qigong. In 1997 Gerry lived with his martial arts teacher Master Yang Fu-Kui. Master Yang introduced Gerry to the fundamentals of Chinese Medicine, as well as to the arts of taiji and qigong and encouraged Gerry to study Chinese medicine. In 2004, Gerry completed his Master's degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York. After PCOM, Gerry traveled to Beijing, China where he studied with esteemed clinicians in several hospitals. He has completed extensive post-graduate training in tui-na and maintains a private practice in Manhattan. Gerry has been teaching at PCOM since 2009.
