Ms. Chen's journey to becoming an acupuncturist began when she experienced the pain and loss of one of the most important people in her life. It all started during her fifth-grade winter break when her mother passed away after battling breast cancer for two years. Her mother’s passing impacted her deeply and inspired her to pursue a career in the health field. She aspired to enter the healthcare field because she wanted to help herself and others who suffer from pain and illness.

Ever since middle school, she suffered from stomach aches and knee pain. Her worst stomach ache occurred when she was diagnosed with a stomach ulcer at the age of seventeen. She suffered from countless sleepless nights due to the pain caused by the ulcer. Back then, the only medicine she knew was antibiotics. Had she known about the benefits of acupuncture, it could have saved her from the pain.

Her body was slowly deteriorating when she graduated from her undergraduate studies and continued her studies in MBA. During the two years of the MBA program, she suffered from panic attacks, migraines, stress, stomach pain, stomach ulcers, and knee pain. The opportunity to seek an acupuncturist was presented when one of her friends approached her about acupuncture and how it could benefit her life and body. She was curious about acupuncture and Oriental Medicine; thus, she sought her friend’s advice and began studying acupuncture. She experienced her first-ever acupuncture treatment, which was extremely beneficial.

Since then, she has been able to treat her own stomach problems and knee pain with acupuncture and cupping. Learning acupuncture and Oriental Medicine has also helped her balance her emotions, which allowed her to cope with stress. She has yet to experience extreme flare-ups of pain and has not had any panic attacks or migraines. That is why she has become extremely passionate about acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

She was awarded the Board of Trustees Award and graduated at the top of her class at South Baylo University. After graduating, she worked in a busy clinic and treated many patients with extreme and chronic pain. She has seen countless patients with various types of pain, stress, emotional problems, insomnia, and other illnesses.

Every experience she had with patients was very rewarding because she was able to witness the patients' improvement from acupuncture treatments and traditional Chinese herbal medicine. No reward is greater than knowing that the patients' lives improved after treatments. She welcomes everyone to begin their acupuncture and Oriental Medicine journey at Gin's Integrative Medicine.
