After completing his Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the AOMA Graduate School of Medicine in record time, Anthony is very grateful to have an opportunity to practice here in Houston.


Anthony was the only student at AOMA to have completed the full program in three years.  He was awarded the AOMA Scholarship for overall excellence in Chinese medical studies and the Golden Flower Chinese Herbs Scholarship for excellence in acupuncture studies, herbal studies, biomedical sciences and clinical internship.  He was the only student to win two scholarships in the same year.  He was also served in the AOMA student Association as Secretary, Treasurer, and Acting President.

In his first ever clinical rotation, his supervisor commented that he had the skills and confidence of a senior intern.  His herbal clinic supervisor said Anthony “is one of the top herbalist that [he] had seen in [his 15] years tenure at the school.”  He was so highly requested by patients that he had permission to treat 4 patients by himself in a single clinic time slot (regular time slot requires 2 interns treating 2 patients).

Although Anthony loves Traditional Chinese Medicine, he is also trained in many advanced techniques.  Some of which are:

-  Master Tung point therapeutic

-  Balance techniques

-  Auricular Acupuncture

-  Scalp acupuncture

-  Second Metacarpal Acupuncture

-  Over 100 hours of clinical observation, treatment, pulse diagnosis seminar under Dr. Will Morris

-  Chinese orthopedic manual therapy (Tuina – “tway-nah”), a type of Chinese bodywork, for sports injuries,    

   internal disorders with Dr. Yongxin Fan.

-  Women’s health and fertility with Dr. Zheng Zeng, an expert in gynecology and obstetrics and the American Board of Oriental       Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) practitioner of the year 2011.

-  Tincture, pills, granule technique with Dr. Violet Song, an expert in TCM herbology, and TCM pharmacology.


Anthony loves to serve and that is how he got started in TCM, a holistic medicine.  He has been a part of the leadership team of Compassionate Service Society (CSS), a non-profit organization that promotes the practice of altruism through the teaching and practice of Integral Taichi, meditation, and volunteerism.  His involvements in CSS allow him to appreciate the value of a holistic cultivation.


Anthony is fully board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.  He is licensed by Texas Medical Board and the Texas State Board of Acupuncture Examiners.
