Yang Yang is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in the state of New Jersey. She grew up in Chengdu, Sichuan province, China, which is famous for the Huoshen branch of Chinese medicine. After she graduated from Southwestern University of Finance and Economics with a master's degree in management, she moved to the United States. Inspired by her childhood experience and passions for traditional medicine, she went to Pacific College of Health and Science to systematically study oriental medicine. After gaining her master's degree in oriental medicine and state licenses, she pursued her doctorate degree in acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Yang Yang is also a certified Chinese language teacher and has been a teacher of traditional Chinese music in the Huaxia Chinese school since 2016. She believes many chronic illnesses and autoimmune diseases are manifested as physical disorders but rooted with emotional disturbances. Combining acupuncture and herbal formulas, she has successfully treated patients with emotional, digestive, and gynecological disorders along with back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Yang Yang is excited to join Thompson Healthcare & Sports Medicine/Atlantic Health System with their excellent multidisciplinary medical team to continue to help patients out of pain. Yang Yang loves to read classic Chinese medicine textbooks and apply those ancient wisdoms into her practice. As an active member of the Young Acupuncturist Association of America and American TCM society, she is willing to delicate her life to Chinese medicine and help as many patients as possible. In her free time, she likes to play traditional Chinese instruments and piano. She also enjoys making seasonal recipes to nourish life.
