Hello, I am Dr. Helen Yang (Hongyan), a Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) and Licensed Massage Therapist (L.M.T.) who provides alternative treatments for pain and many other ailments. I am passionate about helping people achieve optimum health, strength, and vitality.
Before falling in love with Chinese Medicine, I had received my MD in Preventive Medicine from Norman Bethune Medical University of China in 1989, and worked as an intern doctor in the gastrointestinal and infectious disease departments there. Always having had the dream of going abroad, in 2004, I earned my Ph.D. in Bio-Medicine from Helsinki University of Finland. When I came to the United States, I first conducted infectious disease research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and then worked on cancer drug development at a Biotech Company.
In 2006, I had severe chronic postpartum pain that had greatly benefited from massage and acupuncture. This special experience led me realized that my passion is to help people face to face and became a Licensed Massage Therapist in 2011. Initially, I worked in a variety of the best therapeutic massage clinics in the Greater Washington area for a while before I went back to school for Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology. I completed my 4-year fruitful study, earned a Master degree in Acupuncture and Herbology, and became a licensed Acupuncturist in 2016. Now, I am an expert in therapeutic massage, acupuncture and herbal medicine. I would love to partner with you on your journey to optimize your health and quality of life!
