Doctor

China yī shēng
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

Note: Sometimes this same term is used in Korean but not common.

Japan i shi

Japan i sha
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

Doctor

China yī shī
Japan i shi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the title used to refer to medical doctors or physicians in old Korean Hanja.

Notes:
Also means "doctor" in Chinese but not the most commonly used title.
This is the ancient/traditional form of doctor in Japanese (they simplified the first character in Japan after WWII).

Benevolent and Skilled Doctor

China miào shǒu rén xīn xuán hú jì shì
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This phrase celebrates the benevolence, skill, and service to his/her patients.

Here's a breakdown of the characters:
妙手 miào shǒu admirable skill in curing disease (when used in reference to doctors).
仁心 rén xīn kindheartedness, charity, benevolent heart.
悬壶济世 xuán hú jì shì practice medicine or pharmacy to help the people or public.

Benevolent and Skilled Doctor

Short version
China miào shǒu rén xīn
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This phrase celebrates the benevolence, skill, and service to his/her patients.

Here's a breakdown of the characters:
妙手 miào shǒu admirable skill in curing disease (when used in reference to doctors).
仁心 rén xīn kindheartedness, charity, benevolent heart.

Acupuncture and Moxibustion

China zhēn jiǔ
Japan shin kyuu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

鍼灸 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja word for acupuncture-moxibustion.

Acupuncture

China zhēn shù
Japan shinjutsu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

針術 is a way to write acupuncture in Chinese.

The first character means "needle" or "pin."
The second character means "technique" or "method."


This is theoretically a Japanese word as well but not commonly used.

Acupuncture

China zhēn liáo fǎ
Japan hari ryou hou
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

針療法 is one of two ways to write acupuncture in Chinese and Japanese.

The first character means "needle" or "pin." The second character means "to treat" or "to cure." The last character means "method" or "way."

This is the only reasonable selection if your audience is Japanese. This is the formal way to express acupuncture in Chinese, so this version is universal in most of Asia (the best all around choice in most cases).

You May Learn from Victory,
You Will Learn from Failure

China bǎi shèng nán lǜ dí sān zhé nǎi liáng yī
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This Chinese proverbs literally translates as: [Even a general who has won a] hundred victories [may be] hard put to see through the enemy's [strategy], [but one who has] broken [his] arm three [times] [will] be a good doctor.

Figuratively, this means: One cannot always depend on past successes to guarantee future success but one can always learn from lessons drawn from failure.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.


A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
