I was inspired to become an acupuncturist while attending a Physical Therapy doctorate program. I have always been fascinated by the human body and realized I wanted a complete healing experience to bring into my practice as I have always leaned towards a holistic lifestyle. My current practice is focusing on women’s health and wellness combining acupuncture and Chinese medicine, physical therapy, Kundalini yoga and meditation.  I am so grateful for AMU for providing me with the knowledge and skills to be able to offer my patients options in their medical treatment.

Ms. Wang graduated from Alhambra Medical University (AMU) at the end of 2013 as the top of the class and immediately obtained her state License as an Acupuncturist in early 2014.  Ms. Wang was initially drawn to a career in engineering until she benefited from oriental medicine herself. She was convinced that it is one of the safest and most effective approaches to holistic health and she decided to dedicate the next chapter of her life to it. Ms. Wang was able to quickly equip herself and established a solid foundation in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) by the outstanding and precise instruction form AMU. She also received practical guidance from AMU and is now holding a successful career.
