Bartosz Chmielnicki graduated from Silesian Medical Academy with an MD degree in 2002. Two years later he finished an acupuncture course for doctors and started working as an acupuncturist in a Pain Management Clinic in Tychy. Very quickly he realised that Western Medicine doesn't provide sufficient data for the practice of acupuncture, which is a part of a different, Chinese medical system. From 2005 to 2009 he was studying TCM. Bartosz has been practicing acupuncture for more than 10 years, he is the Co-founder of center for natural therapies – Compleo, and Silesian Academy of Acupuncture. President of Silesian Chapter and Board member of Polish Acupunture Association (2007-2009), and a President of Classical Acupuncture Association (2010 – 2014).
