It was inside his grandfather's herbal pharmacy in Taiwan that Shawn Tseng realized his passion for ancient acupuncture and oriental medicine. After beholding the renewed vigor and celebratory slam dunks displayed by patient after patient, Shawn hit the books in America before returning to his homeland for a hands-on externship at the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. Now, the acupuncturist surrounds himself with a passionate staff whose journeys are every bit as personal as his own. Just ask them and they'll attest to the positive changes they've seen in their own lives thanks to the healing properties of oriental medicine and mind-body restoration.
Trained to treat everything from arthritis and asthma to joint pain and sciatica, Shawn's crew cycles between traditional and electro-acupuncture and massage therapy, tailoring treatments to clients’ individual conditions and desires. In a comfy, half-open setting, patients rest on recliners or treatment tables as staffers restore mind-body balance via acupressure points, meridian lines, and cooperative spirit animals.
