Pacific College of Oriental Medicine is proud to announce that Giovanni Maciocia will be joining our San Diego faculty. As a world-renowned practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine he will be an exciting new force on our campus. Giovanni will be a regular faculty member of our doctoral program and a guest lecturer in our master's program. He is also slotted to participate in our Pacific Symposium and special events at our Chicago and New York campuses.

Often noted as the father of Chinese medicine in Europe, Giovanni Maciocia is best known as the author of "Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine", "The Foundations of Chinese Medicine", "The Practice of Chinese Medicine", and "Obstetrics and Gynecology in Chinese Medicine". His textbooks are a learning staple in acupuncture colleges worldwide.

Maciocia's own education began in England where he attended the International College of Oriental Medicine and graduated with a degree in acupuncture in 1974. Since then he has attended three post-graduate courses at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and graduated from the National Institute of Medical Herbalists in 1977.

In 1996 he was appointed as a visiting professor at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the top Oriental medicine college in China.

Giovanni Maciocia is an innovator of medical technique and theory and an experienced guide in the world of Oriental medicine. He is constantly adapting Oriental medical techniques and theories to Western cultural conditions and diseases. Most recently, Giovanni formulated an original theory on the aetiology and pathology of asthma and allergic rhinitis. He also penned a theory on the aetiology, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome, a newly discovered disease with no Chinese medical documentation.

Also well known for his successful herbal formulas "The Three Treasures" and "The Women's Treasure". Giovanni is also credited with developing the first line of Chinese herbal formulae to treat women's gynecological complaints.
