We employ exceptional faculty and cultivate a rich academic environment. Our heritage lineage of acupuncture manipulation techniques has been passed on from Master Jin Zhang, a world renowned expert in needle manipulations, and we carry this tradition on to you.

Our mandate is to share the wisdom of tradition and our lineage with you while we explore the possibilities of practice in today’s diverse medical world.

​Our specialties include advanced needle manipulations taught by Master Jin Zhang, Wu’s Head Massage created by our president, TCM as practiced in integrative medical contexts, and qigong or energy medicine.
