The superior virtue is like water,

It stays in the inferior place without contending;

The great virtue carries things with it,

The Dao follows natural self-being.

I received a PhD in Anatomy and Neuroscience and an MD Neurology in China. I worked as a scientist with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the U.S. and received an Award for Research Excellence from NIH.


I also hold the international certificate of Chinese Medicine Doctor (CMD) by the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies (WFCMS). I received a Master of Acupuncture from Tai Sophia Institute, Laurel, Maryland. I am a national board-certified Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist (Dipl. O.M. (NCCAOM)).


I was apprenticed with my grandfather in traditional Chinese medicine and inherited Zhu Danxi’s Nourishing Yin School. I am also the 5th generation of Cheng’s Acupuncture and Moxibustion (CAM, lineage of Cheng Xinnong 程莘农 院士, Academician of China Academy of Sciences).


I have  published more than 20 peer reviewed journal articles and am the author of the book Surface Anatomy of Acupuncture.
