Haase first became interested in Chinese medicine when he was in Canada. After graduating from high sc

hool, he entered the Oshio College of Acupuncture & Herbology in Victoria. Haase’s teacher then was from Hunan.

“He taught us a lot of interesting things about Hunan, like the great herbalist doctor Zhang Zhongjing. He also told me tha

In order to learn Chinese medical theory, Haase studies Chinese medicine
