The Story of Dr.Philip Marquez-McBee

How It All Started for Dr.Philip Marquez-McBee

“I received my first acupuncture treatment 37 years ago. Seven (7) months prior to that appointment, I received a severe horrific beating from a bunch of street thugs. their rewards for my takedown: $2750 in cash, my leather bomber 2 platinum pinky rings and my baby: A Baby Blue Stratocaster guitar autographed by an up and coming Guitar Wizard: Stevie Ray Vaughn.

The results of these knucklehead's attack; 53 stitches to my skull, a damage right hand (no feeling was felt for a long time ) 2 near fracture eye sockets, distrust, fear, and anger ruled my days...and life. In desperation, I reached out to an Acupuncturist Dr. Wang.  After 12 treatments,(which included acupuncture, massage, and exotic herbs) I was able to muster the courage to take photos (as you can see on the right) and perform on stage from time to time. Life was slowly turning for the better...but there was more to come."..

The Calling

“I was enrolled in the University of Sydney, with intentions of getting a PhD in Music. In my head, I was going to be the next Jimi Hendrix...Boy was I mistaken! Even though I studied hard, I could not get my mind out of spiritual turmoil. I kept thinking: I must find spirituality, and I had to find it soon! At about the same time, I began to grow an interest in holistic healing; the acupuncture I received, was at times exhilarating,helpful.Soon I felt myself desiring to help others: I wanted to become an acupuncturist too!.. But my first love was music. I wondered..could I do both arts? A former band mate told me of a university that he felt would make it all come together for me .So I left Sydney for Canterbury.”

Canterbury… I Love "U"!!!

“The University of Canterbury was such a  powerful, invigorating, yet moving experience. At the Canterbury College of Natural Medicine, I didn't just study acupuncture.. I learned it well! Dr. Chun -Yan Chen, not only trained me through all the basics, but he also gave me the spiritual guidance I searched for. Dr. Olav Skille, of Norway, and Hans Causto were my greatest mentors and greatest influences in my later years.

Hans and Dr. Skille (Both are musicians) spoke and taught the amazing power of sound;  how it can be used to help and harm you in  body, mind , and spirit.  Hans is a Swedish mathematician, musicologist, an absolute wizard! Dr. Olav Skille : It is  extremely hard to describe this guy in many words; so  I will use just one: Phenomenal!!! I later learned: Everything, And Everything Frequency! So much music in this U-N-I-V-E-R-S-E!  In pain?  depressed? can't sleep? ...You're out of tune! How do you fix it?  It depends on what key you're in!" 

The Reward

“The day I received my Degree I felt victorious. All of the twist and turns in my life were just that...part of the plan! One of the muggers called me the loser when he was beating me. But on this day of graduation... I was a winner! I made history on that day: Receiving a combined Master/ PhD in Natural Medicine And was the first  Hispanic/African -American  to graduate from the college.

It was not long after graduation, when I started putting all that I learned in high gear. Fast forward, still treating people, assisting people to live holistically, advocating the rights of those whom want to live holistically...Yes.. I'm still living my dream! And in 2003....

I received that Doctorate in Music! Combining the power of music, along with my skills in acupuncture; I like to refer it as Sonic Medicine or
