I just learned the shocking news of the death of Giovanni Maciocia after a long-term illness.

Giovanni was a giant in our field. His work in bringing TCM philosophy and methodologies in a clear and concise way for the traditional and modern Chinese medicine practitioner is remarkable and unparalleled. He was admired, respected and loved by thousands of students, colleagues and friends. We all have his many books and his tomes that will live on and continue his legacy.

Giovani will be missed.
