AnnSheng Chinese Medicine Clinic is a licensed provider of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The clinic was founded over 30 years ago by Dr. Ai-de Men, PhD, who is trained in both Chinese and Western medicine. Before moving to the U.S., Dr. Men was a practicing OBGYN physician and faculty at Shandong TCM University Affiliated Hospital in China. Through her experience treating hundreds of patients with western medicine and TCM, Dr. Men believes that TCM is the most effective in treating various illnesses, dysfunctions and imbalances of the human body. Her focus is to try to find out the root causes of illness or symptoms, and restore the body’s balance with the appropriate treatment for each individual. Especially in cases of chronic or severe illness, Dr. Men starts by treating the entire body as a whole to bring it back into harmony.
In addition to the treatments she provides in clinic, Dr. Men also emphasizes dietary and lifestyle factors that can help support the body’s natural ability to heal itself. She specializes in functional disorders such as menstrual disorders, infertility (both male and female), menopause, mental or emotional disorders, insomnia, long-term digestive disorders, metabolic disorders, autoimmune disorders, and pain relief.
Aside from her clinical experience, Dr. Men has also over 30 years of teaching experience. She is currently a faculty professor at American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, where she has been teaching since 1997. Previously, she also taught at Emperor’s College of TCM in Santa Monica, CA from 1988-1992.
The treatment principle and techniques are based on classic texts passed down 4000 years ago in Ancient China. We believed that human functions are made possible by the Qi circulation in our body. Through the use of modalities like Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Herbal medicine, Cupping and Tuina Massage, we can restore the body’s balance and as a result restore health.
