Philip has been in the health industry since 1971. While working in the Federal Government, the positions held included manager of inspection teams for nursing homes and private hospitals. This position collaborated with State and local departments to ensure high industry standards.
An acupuncture practitioner since 1980, Philip Strong upgraded his Adv. Dip. Acupuncture to Bachelor Health Science Acupuncture, in 2002, at University of Victoria.
Philip has been the owner/operater of The Energy Centre since 1998. He is an AACMA Fellow, since 2013, and a member of the Toyohari Society, Japan, since 2002.
In 2002, Philip developed a non insertive technique that changed scar tissue at the cellular level. This was both at the superficial layer and at the deeper internal scar tissue layers. To maintain the interlectual property and the integrity of this development, it was initially presented to the international delegates at the AACMAC of 2007.
Due to his long standing support of the MoxAfrica TB research charity organisation, Philip presented at the WFAS 2013 in Sydney for the 8th Conference, on the findings and benefits of moxibustion.
Philip first published his procedure in the November 2012 edition of the North American Journal of Oriental Medicine, titled “Scarred for Life”. [Volume 19 Number 56]. This created international interest in 2014 and a series of seminars began in Zurich, Frankfurt, London, Birmingham, Dublin, and York.
This led to Philip receiving an invitation to present two workshops at the AGTCM Rothenburg Kongress in 2016 on Scar Tissue Rejuvenation, and also his new development of removing abdominal adhesions. During this opportunity he also presented lectures at the Qing Bai campus in Amersfoort, Netherlands; Olten, Switzerland; Munich and again in London at the ICOM campus in East Grinstead.
Philip has presented at several Australian seminars in Melbourne, Sydney, Townsville and the Brisbane national conferences AACMAC 2017.
Philip has also been published in the Swiss journal for TCM “Yin Yang Magazine” in March 2015, The Meaning of Ki?? – Understanding Relationships between Qi & Scar Tissue?
In April 2016, the edition of the AGTCM Journal “Qi Magazine”, The Importance of Qi, Understanding the Relationship Between Qi & Scar tissue.
