Foundations in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Dr Shangyou Zhong

The journey of our resident expert at Sunyo Acupuncture began at a prestigious Chinese medicine university in China, where the roots of traditional practice run deep. Here, under the tutelage of a master of traditional Chinese medicine, she immersed herself in the ancient art of acupuncture and the rich heritage of Chinese medicinal practices. Complementing this traditional education, she also gained proficiency in Western medicine technology, integrating the best of both worlds to enhance patient care. Her role as an MD in a major Chinese hospital for six years, including a critical stint in the emergency room for three years, saw her skillfully melding these approaches to treat a plethora of challenging diseases.

Bridging Eastern and Western Healing Arts

Transitioning to the United States, she brought with her a wealth of knowledge and expertise, securing both the California Acupuncture License and the National Acupuncture License in 1990. Her dedication to sharing her expertise led her to teach at the Los Angeles University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, influencing a new generation of practitioners. For 25 years, her practice flourished in the prestigious locales of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, where she honed a variety of sophisticated acupuncture techniques. Beyond traditional methods, she adeptly employs specialized forms such as abdominal, floating, scalp, and navel acupuncture, as well as sports and Dong’s acupuncture, catering to the unique needs of each patient.

A Legacy of Healing and Excellence

With over four decades of relentless learning and skill refinement, our expert has been at the forefront of providing high-quality, efficacious treatments, ensuring swift recovery times for a vast array of patients. Her exceptional work has not only garnered the respect of many Western medicine practitioners but has also drawn high praise from countless patients. Today, she continues her practice at two clinics in Santa Monica and Ladera Ranch, remaining committed to the art and science of acupuncture. Her mastery of diverse techniques and her dedication to patient well-being exemplify the standards of care at Sunyo Acupuncture, making it a sanctuary for those seeking holistic recovery and health.
