John Zhang was found guilty of professional misconduct by B.C.'s College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists over allegations he allowed his clinic to be operated as a bawdy house.
The clinic was shut down in January 2011 after a joint investigation by a bylaw enforcement officer and the RCMP, which lead to a discipline hearing that saw surveillance photographs taken inside.
The pictures are alleged to have shown signage referring to pornographic activities and women clad in short, lingerie-like dress.
Two male customers also testified they paid for prostitutes at the clinic.
The college has suspended Zhang until January 2014, he has been fined about $21,500, and he must pay for audits of his practice if he seeks to resume when the suspension is lifted.
