PIHMA Faculty

I was born in a beautiful mountain city in China, where my parents still live. I am the only child in the family. My parents have given me all their love, and I am always concerned about my parents in my heart on the other side of the ocean.

I started studying Chinese medicine at Beijing University of Chinese Medicine in 2008, mainly studying acupuncture and Chinese Tui Na therapy. Immigrated to California, USA in 2012.
