Traditional Chinese medicine in the 20th century, along with acupuncture, took off in France. Nguyen Van Nghi is one of the most important carriers of Chinese medical knowledge outside of China. He is a doctor by Western training, but can read oriental texts; he contributes to the spreading of this knowledge in France and in Europe. He left a rich legacy to French acupuncturists.
