Dr. Wei-Chieh Young
Certified California Acupuncturist Certified Chinese Medical Doctor in Taiwan
...
Dr. Wei-Chieh Young, now practicing in Rowland Heights, California, is originally from Taiwan, R.O.C. He was born in a family with Traditional Chinese Medicine background. That endowed him to learn Traditional Chinese Medicine, Orthopedics and Traumatology, and Acupuncture since he was young. In 1965, while he was around high-school age, he started to study with the Great Master in acupuncture, Master Tung Ching-Chang, as a direct-line disciple. He then became Master Tung's clinic assistant after 4 years of apprentice.
While studying in National Chengchi University, Taiwan, Dr. Young founded the Student Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and started to teach Master Tung's Acupuncture with his master's permission. He offered free consultations and treatments to the students. Since a sophomore, he practiced part-time at Wuei-Yuan Clinic and Tai-Sheng Clinic in Taipei until graduation. Immediately after his graduation, he started his own clinic, Fu-De Acupuncture and Traumatology Clinic (later renamed to Young Wei-Chieh Chinese Medicine Clinic.)
Dr. Young and Master Tung's Acupuncture
Master Tung was a quite person. He didn't talk much. Many times he would respond to students' questions as "observe and think by yourself". This way of teaching allowed Dr. Young to think freely and forced him to study hard and develop his own theories. Dr. Young was an intelligent and diligent student of Master Tung's. In 1971, he developed a powerful and effective technique named "Chien-Yin (Pulling & Guiding) Needling Technique". This technique is one of the so-called "3 Major Needling Techniques in Master Tung's Acupuncture". The other two are "Dong Qi (Activate Qi)" and "Dao Ma (Serial Needles)". In 1973, Dr. Young developed "Zhang-Fu Bei tong (Organ Divergent Communications) theory", which originally idea is from Nei Jing.
...
This theory is one of the theories Dr. Young applied to explain Master Tung's Acupuncture. In 1975, Dr. Young published "Zhen Jiao Jing Wei" (The Longitude and Latitude of Acupuncture and Moxibustion), the first book ever documenting Master Tung's points with expanded theories and clinical experiences. Master Tung highly commended the work and gave his encouragement.
The same year, Master Tung passed away. But his lifework is not ended. Dr. Young continues the journey of dedicating in glorifying, broadening and heightening Traditional Chinese Medicine and Master Tung's Acupuncture. The theories developed and expanded by Dr. Young and his clinical experience he shared complete the Master Tung's Acupuncture system. In the past 30 years, every day he follows the conduct as "practice in the day time, study and research at night time". He doesn't hold his findings privately. By books, journal articles, and seminars, he has been sharing his valuable discoveries without concealment.
With Dr. Young's efforts, the powerful effect and value of Master Tung's Acupuncture is affirmed. It's now very popular worldwide, especially in Taiwan, China, Korea and US. It has also become must-learn acupuncture knowledge. In China, Master Tung's Acupuncture is a requirement for continuing education.
Education and Licensure
Dr. Young is a certified Chinese Medical Doctor in Taiwan (the average pass rate is only 7%), California and NCCA certified acupuncturist and herbalist. Dr. Young receives his Doctorate degree in Medicine at Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ph.D. in Philosophy at Beijing University, and Ph.D. in Oriental Medicine from Samra University of Oriental Medicine. Dr. Young believes clinical practices and academic studies benefit by association with each other. After decades of clinical practices, self-studying, and learning from master-level doctors, he decided to reach for a higher level. He pursued his doctorate degrees in Chinese Medicine and Philosophy simultaneously.
