Born in a family of generations of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) doctors and educators, I have long been pondering around the relations among patients,doctors, diseases, struggles and the nature. While the modern science and technology have greatly improved life expectancy and eradicated many disastrous plagues, much more areas remain unknown. Even worse, many chemical centered medications bring up severe side effects, sometimes fatal or irreparable.
To some extent, the Conventional Western Medicine side effects are rooted in its philosophy, Mechanism, which focuses on the disease, instead of the patient. On the contrary, TCM philosophy – Vitalism, focuses on the patient, believing in balanced energy within human body, harmony between mind and body, and unity with the Mother Nature. With TCM, the healing process is not about the doctor diagnosing the disease, followed by the chemicals fighting against bacteria. It’s more about the TCM doctor teaming up with the patient, helping the patient regain balance of energy, guiding the patient toward mind and body harmony, and celebrating the unity of healthy elements.

As I am pursing the highest degree of TCM, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, at the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine, acupuncture has gone beyond my profession, and become my passion. I look forward to each and every single curing day with my patients.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world. Originating in China some 3,500 years ago, only in the last three decades has it become popular in the United States. In 1993, the Food and Drug Administration estimated that Americans made up to 12 million visits per year to acupuncture practitioners and spent upwards of half a billion dollars on acupuncture treatments
Several theories have been presented as to exactly how acupuncture works. One theory suggests that pain impulses are blocked from reaching the spinal cord or brain at various “gates” to these areas. Since a majority of acupuncture points are either connected to (or are located near) neural structures, this suggests that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system.
As acupuncturists, our collective vision is focused on creating western medicine alternative modalities in pain management. Because in many cases, acupuncture is equally effective, yet at substantially lower risk with few side effects, when compared with traditional western pain relief techniques.
