Douglas Eisenstark L.Ac.

For many years I had an interest in Chinese Medicine. This interest grew while living for 12 years in New York City’s Chinatown. After years of Taijichuan practice I read that a complete artist in Asian culture must also know the medicine as well. It was then that I resolved to go to school for this and I had my opportunity 25¬†years ago when I moved to Los Angeles. Since then I’ve made 3 trips to China and met a number of close friends and colleagues in the Chinese Medicine field. I’m now completely enjoying life as a “Chinese Doctor”.

Art and Chinese Medicine

what is Taiqi.ME? well, way back when when the internet was just starting I bought the name The name was worth some money so I was offered enough money that I sold it. I had been doing the site for 16 years.  It contained a bit of information about Taichi/taiqi, reviews of books dealing with acupuncture and a lot of my art work from over the years.

The name is worth a lot more in Asia as one could imagine. I think there is a Taiqi car company. But mainly I think its been in the hands of domain name speculators since I sold it 15 years ago and hasn’t been used. Oh well. 

So I slickly sold it and bought the web name with some money in the bank.
