Margaret Fowler


Graduate Program Faculty Member


Dr. Fowler graduated Summa Cum Laude from LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 1981. For over 20 years, she was a companion animal practitioner where her practice was voted Best of Bay County. She spent 15 years as Director of Veterinary Services at a local zoo. As a prior student of martial arts with a long interest in the Eastern lifestyle, she started training with Dr. Xie and the Chi Institute in 2005 and discovered that TCVM was her life’s passion. Dr. Fowler became certified in all 4 branches. In 2013 Dr. Xie designated her Certified TCVM Practitioner, one of only 65 in the world. She earned her Master’s degree in TCVM in August 2016 from the Chi Institute and joined the faculty shortly thereafter. Dr. Fowler has published papers in the American Journal of TCVM and the IVC, presented papers and cases at 2 International Conferences of TCVM, and is a lab instructor and lecturer at the Chi Institute. Through the Chi Institute, Dr Fowler discovered her life’s second passion - teaching TCVM and advising TCVM veterinarians and students of the Chi Institute. Although she works closely with several conventional veterinary hospitals, Dr Fowler has devoted her practice solely to TCVM for over 11 years. Acupuncture & Holistic Veterinary Services of NW Florida has been voted Best of Panama City Beach for 8 years in a row. She has treated animals from all over Florida, the Southeast and even internationally. Her focus is companion animals but also treats exotics, horses, and zoo animals. Now retired from practice as of 2017, Dr Fowler devotes all of her professional time to teaching at the Chi Institute.
