Licensed Acupuncturist | Registered Nurse
My great-grandmother, grandmother and mother were all gifted herbalists and homeopathic consultants. My upbringing was imbued with an atmosphere rich in health care options and ideas. To pursue my longing to assist people in their health care, I became a registered nurse in 1986. My keen interest in natural healing led me to continue my studies in Western herbology. My passion for herbology compelled me to attend an acupuncture college and begin my studies in Chinese herbs and acupuncture.
After my children were grown I was able to go back to school full time and obtain my master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The program is a state-mandated 3,000 hour, full-time, four-year program. During this time of intense studying, I learned to think in a new and very different way. Since the diagnostic process for Chinese medicine is much more complex, the treatment can be more effective.
I have an extensive and in-depth education because of this combination of a strong Western medical background and the Chinese healing paradigm. This comprehensive background has enabled me to help my patients considerably.
Since I began my practice in 2001, I have averaged about 1,400 patient visits a year and “clocked in” more than 40,000 needle insertions per year. About 30% of my practice is women’s health, and the remainder is general practice which includes pain. I also specialize in anxiety, insomnia, and depression.
Linda Chung is a licensed acupunturist. Linda’s passion for understanding the human body was first ignited as a young girl by studying herbal medicine with her father in Taiwan. As an herbalist’s daughter, she was amazed how herbs can help people with their health. She was fascinated with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory and how it interacts with humans.
In order to introduce and help more people understand and accept TCM, she got her Master of Science degree in TCM from South Baylo University, California. In her experience a lot of people are tired of treating only the symptom and not the cause. Linda’s diagnosis can help patients get to the root of their problem, treating the cause of the disorder.
Linda treats a variety of conditions. Some of her favorite ones are: joint and muscular pains, headaches, digestive disorders, allergies, emotional disorders, women’s health issues and weight control.
