After graduation, she was fortunate enough to become the fellow of Dr. He-Sheng Yao, a great master of TCM in China. In 1988, Dr. Lihua Sheng was hired as the attending licensed physician at the TCM hospital in Shanghai.

As a senior practitioner of TCM, Dr. Sheng pays attention to the whole integrated body approach, evaluating the patient’s complaints and symptoms by applying a traditional diagnostic manner, combining physical observations, communication, pulsing, and tongue exam, in order to find the root cause. Acupuncture points are determined along meridians, to promote energy circulation and restore ‘YIN-YANG’ harmony. In TCM, the energy flow, referred as ‘Chi’, flows throughout the entire body. Unblocking and balancing Chi is vital in preventing and remedying bodily disorders. Beyond acupuncture, Dr. Sheng is also proficient in bodywork therapy, herbal supplement and dietary/nutritional support. Dr. Sheng is always seeking for a patient’s optimal health with her valuable professional skills and enriched clinical experiences.
