At the helm of Cultivating Vitality Acupuncture and Herbs sits Spring Cheng, an expert in both Western and Eastern medicine. A PhD in molecular biology, Cheng grew dissatisfied with modern medicinal approaches to healing in her biomedical career. She decided to return to her roots and follow in the footsteps of her grandfathers, who both practiced Chinese medicine. Now, the licensed acupuncturist combines her scientific and holistic-healing knowledge to treat a variety of maladies. Using techniques such as acupressure, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and tui na massage, she works to assuage conditions such as allergies, addiction, insomnia, and headaches, altering her treatments on an individual basis.
