About Julie Hwang, MSOM, LAc
I have been practicing acupuncture for 10 years. I fell in love with Chinese medicine because its tenets echoed how I strive to live my life, both in philosophy and in action. I have personally found the combination of acupuncture, herbs, qigong (breathing and movement exercises), tuina (Chinese massage), and lifestyle adjustments have helped me to heal over and over again, from emotional trauma to physical sickness and injuries.
Education & Credentials
Bachelor of Arts, Davidson College
Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM) with a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Classical Chinese Medicine, National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM)
License of Acupuncture, Tennessee
National Acupuncture Certification, National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM)
I have been fortunate to study with some of the most talented Classical Chinese Medicine practitioners in the world:
I apprenticed for many years in Neijing acupuncture techniques and philosophy with Edward Neal, MD.
I studied Chinese herbal formulas with an emphasis on Shanghan Lun and Jingui Yaolue under one of the foremost herbalists in the Western World, Heiner Fruehauf, Ph.D. and also under the late Dr. Zhang Jun.
I have worked extensively with Teamonk Po and Heiner Fruehauf in Asian tea arts, especially Chinese and Taiwanese pu-er and medicinal teas.
When not in the treatment room, I can be found attending my other passions: climbing rocks, drinking old tea, eating pie, cooking, working on various kitchen projects, and playing with my amazing puppy Ollie. 💕
