Adejola Olatunji first trained in acupuncture in the United States in Chicago and also studied in Taiwan and China.
He moved to New Zealand and started practising acupuncture in Wellington in 1987.
His expertise is well respected and he was involved in the translations of what are now standard acupuncture texts in many colleges through out the western world.
In 1989 he set up the New Zealand School of Acupuncture and TCM which since then has become a fully accredited Bachelor’s degree course through NZQA and the college now also offers a master’s program.
The Acupuncture Clinic- On Air will be interviewing Tunji, as he is likes to be known, on the 22/09/14, 9:30am.

Maybe you are ready to do a PhD in acupuncture and if so, have a listen to Tunji to hear what he as to say about the future of acupuncture study and research in New Zealand.
