Dr. James Shyun
LAc. OMD. Ph.D.
Dr. Shyun is an expert in traditional Chinese healing arts, with over 50 years of experience devoted to his work. He began his studies when he was just 9 years old, as an apprentice of Master Wei Xiao Tang in Taipei, Taiwan. Dr. Shyun spent four years studying the theory and practice of Chinese healing arts before embarking on 18 years of hands-on clinical practice of diagnosing and treating patients under the guidance of his master.
Dr. Shyun has a unique approach. Different from many other doctors you may have gone to. As a healing artist, he stresses the importance of recognizing the oneness that must be understood in order to treat a patient most effectively. He sees diseases afflicting us as part of our nature as well. He posits, for example, that when treating a patient with some type of disease, many medical doctors think of the disease as something separate from the patient. Dr. Shyun, however, emphasizes that the disease is still part of the patient’s essential oneness, and so it must be treated as such in order for the healing arts to be effective.
Dr. Shyun has worked with thousands of patients and doctors throughout the world, and has also developed curricula for teaching other doctors how to use Chinese medical arts in their own practices.
Specialties include: Acupuncture, Acupuncture for SCI and Stroke, Tui Na, Botanical Herbs, Cupping, Moxibustion, Internal Medicine, Chronic Illness, Nutritional Counseling, Healing Chi Kung, and Musculoskeletal Therapy.
