Dr. Saeks became interested in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in 1975, and spent many years learning on his own about this multidisciplinary field. When he and his family moved to Portland, Oregon, in 2000, Dr. Saeks enrolled in the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine where he completed his formal training in TCM. Steve’s initial interest in TCM was in traumatology — the understanding and treatment of physical injuries — and sports medicine. Over the years he expanded his study of TCM to explore the role it could play in the treatment of stress, addictive behaviors, and other psychological conditions.
