Today, traditional Vietnamese medicine is undergoing constant evolution. Heavily influenced by Chinese doctrine, and having incorporated Western medicine, it is changing constantly. 

Within these dynamics of innovation, the older doctors often appear to be the most cutting edge. They are experts on traditional Eastern techniques, and received training in Western medicine at the scientific institutes set up during the colonial period. Dividing his practice between his native village and his own clinic in Hanoi, 74-year old Doctor Dao Kim Long embodies the future of traditional Vietnamese medicine. Bernard sets out to meet the Master himself. Dr. Long explains to Bernard his practice, which is based on modernised acupuncture and complex herbal medicine, as well as the practice of meditation and martial arts.
