Dr. Naran received his first qualification as a medical doctor in South Africa in 1987. He spent three years there, working in various hospitals practicing internal medicine. He then came to Canada in 1990 and worked in Chetwynd (a northern community in British Columbia) for two years as a family physician after which, he moved to North Vancouver in 1993 and opened his own family practice.
He obtained his Acupuncture qualification at the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1995. Since then, he has practiced acupuncture concomitantly during the day with the general practice patients. In 2008, he obtained his certification in Trigger Point Therapy at the George Washington University, home of Janet Travell. He is also affiliated with the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Canada since 1990 and a member of the Canadian Foundation of Acupuncture.
Dr. Naran believes that first, he needs to inform and educate his patients and then guide them towards understanding and experiencing the benefits of exercise, nutrition and weight management in order to alleviate and manage pain. These factors, according to him, will help reverse degeneration and ill-health, not just for his patients, but their families too.
