Acupuncturist and author DR. WING-BENN DENG (M.A.T.C.M., PH.D., L.AC., DIPL.AC.) emigrated to the United States from Taiwan in 1995, intending to pursue a career in Western Medicine. Personal health problems shifted his focus toward the study of Eastern Medicine and the "mind, body, spirit" connection.
Dr. Deng studied Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine at Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (http://www.yosan.edu) in Los Angeles, California. After graduating from Yo San University, Dr. Wing-Benn Deng joined the clinical faculty at Yo San, first as the manager of the Herb Lab, then later as a full professor. Yo San University was founded by the famous brothers Dr. Daoshing & Dr. Maoshing Ni, 38th generation of healers from China's reknown Ni family and sons of Hua-Shing Ni.
Today, Dr. Wing-Benn Deng writes books, articles, and supervises the training of Clinical Interns at Yo San University where he specializes in Pain Management. He is also the author of the widely read "Ask Wing" column in the monthly publication Communi-Chi. There, Dr. Deng answers questions from readers about the complex practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Dr. Deng is the Chair of the Acupuncture Department at Yo San University (http://www.yosan.edu) and the Acupuncture Supervisor of the Chronic Pain Clinic at the Venice Family Clinic (http://venicefamilyclinic.org) in Venice, California, the largest free Community Clinic in the United States.
