UEWM Acupuncture Clinic
The University of East-West Medicine Acupuncture Clinic is located within the UEWM campus at the corner of Lawrence Expressway and Duane Avenue in Sunnyvale, California. The clinic provides a variety of services and treatments such as acupuncture, cupping, tuina, and moxibustion. The clinic also offers customized herbal medicines in the form of dried herbs, pills, plaster, and more.
The UEWM Teaching Clinic represents the integration of health care and education. The treatment is performed by licensed acupuncturists (clinic supervisors) and qualified, supervised clinic interns (advanced level students). The hands-on practice provides students opportunities to serve patients with different cases for more clinical experiences. We committed to provide low-cost and high-quality treatments for patients and the community to get benefit and become more familiar with the principles, health care, and practices of Traditional Chinese medicine.
The UEWM Specialist Clinic is staffed by outstanding professors and experts in Chinese medicine with many years of rich clinical experience to provide the public with excellent comprehensive health care. Some of the more difficult cases may require collaboration between colleagues via telephone, video or in person, in order to find the best treatment plan. Either way, our specialists are here to serve you.
TCM Treatments Including
Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin, to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions.
Developed millennia ago in China, numerous recent studies conducted by scientists in Europe and the United States have found that acupuncture is effective in treating pain and nausea.
Herbal medicines are one type of dietary supplement, and they are an essential part of TCM therapy. They are sold as tablets, capsules, powders, teas, extracts, and fresh or dried plants. People use herbal medicines to maintain and/or improve their health.
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called “moxa” are burned on or very near the surface of the skin used for Pain due to injury or arthritis, especially in “cold” patterns where the pain naturally feels better with the application of heat. Digestive problems and irregular elimination. Gynecological and obstetrical conditions, including breech presentation in late-term pregnancy.
The term Tuina (pronounced “twee naw”), which means “pinch and pull,” refers to several types of bodywork, including massage and acupressure. Compared to massage, Tui na is not generally used for pleasure and relaxation, but rather as a treatment to address specific patterns of disharmony.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage
The ancient Chinese practices of Taiji (Tai Chi) and Qigong (pronounced Chee-gung) combine slow, deliberate movements, meditation, and breathing exercises to keep your body, mind, and spirit in constant and harmonious motion. Qigong, in general, focuses more on health benefits whereas Taiji focuses more on building and increasing strength.

Best acupuncture I ever visit, this is a university with students and doctors and their equipment and traditional medicine is provided at less expensive price. No appointment, just walk in and first come first serve. And special thank you for “Summer” and “Winter” my favorite students at all time. Congratulations on your graduation next month. Thank you for giving your best experience
After taking Qi Guan lessons with Dr. Wang for three months, my posture is getting better. I am standing straighter than before, plus my waist is smaller and it has increased my energy a lot.
No more need for naps in the afternoon, now that my sleep at night is more deep and restful. I wake up without tossing and turning, and every morning my blankets look neat like I am just about to get into bed. Sometimes, I think did I actually go to sleep last night?
I am so happy to have rejoin Dr. Want to learn HeGuan glorious Qi Guan after a 28 years break. Dr Wang also uses acupuncture and helps us open meridian points. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to improve their general health and sleep quality to come to this place!!
UEWM, thank you for your program! I am a self-starter and deeply motivated, but needed the guidance to the right materials. I chose your school because of the high quality of graduates you send onwards to the California Acupuncture License Exam.
Your support these past 3 years gave me all the foundations needed to pass the California Acupuncture License Exam and receive my MSTCM.
I am ramping up to come back for the DAOM, so see you again soon!
I just want to make a testimony about study in the DAOM program. The Doctoral program (DAOM) at the University of East-West Medicine is unlike any other I’ve observed. Every part of the program is geared towards putting the students’ needs first. Not only are the teachers chock full of clinical experience, but they are actually willing to share and teach from that personal experience. Free discussion is encouraged on all kinds of clinical challenges, making the school environment a nurturing atmosphere that is truly conducive to a holistic education. The openness of the classrooms is reflected even in the comprehensiveness of the curricula, proving once again that the university’s primary goal is to provide a complete and quality tutelage for all students. Besides the professors, even the administrative staff holds the collective goal of providing any and every resource for each individual student. They work with students to ensure the accommodation of their needs in every way possible. I consider myself incredibly lucky to be part of this DAOM program, as not only is it an affordable program, but I believe it is also one of the best one.
Committing my future to the University of East-West Medicine has turned out to be one of the most important and amazing decisions of my life. It feels so absolutely right and I only regret that I did not start sooner. Studying for my goal of DAOM achievement is exciting and a Challenge that is changing my life already in many ways. I have learned a different way of looking at health and diseases with the help of my professors. I want to particularly thank one lady teacher Miss, SHANSHAN LEE
who explains so clearly and precisely. She makes things easier to understand while she is so patient. She takes the time to be sure you get the full picture.
I am a student here and I will graduate by the end of this year! I have already been internship at the clinic. I have always liked Chinese medicine very much. I didn’t expect to have a chance to become a professional acupuncturist in the United States. I am very grateful to the school having Chinese class too, which solved my very big trouble!
In the afternoon on April 19, 2017, I came to University of East West Medicine hoping to find a doctor who could treat my post-concussion headache caused by a rear-ended car accident in February. When I learned that Dr. Wang knew how to open the gates in the body, I was willing to give a try.
After the car accident happened in February 2017, I had a severe headache and could not sleep in the night. I went to Stanford Emergency Care, seeing the doctors in Stanford Emergency Department, my primary doctor, and the doctors in Stanford Concussion Clinic. They could not find the reasons causing the headache. The only medicine I received was Tylenol. From February to April, I took 42 pills of Tylenol and 11 pills of Motrin. But it only temporarily relieved the pain. The doctor in the Concussion Clinic gave me a referral form so I could find a therapist near me. But the Therapist canceled the appointment the day before the appointment because the approval from my medical insurance was not received.
My work requires a lot of brain thinking which caused a constant severe headache. I became nervous in the day and was not able to concentrate while I was working. I was afraid of the symptoms I had: severe headache, insomnia, depression, and lower back pain caused by the car accident.
I heard a friend recently had a car accident and his headache was cured in the University of East-West Medicine. That was why I came to University of East-West Medicine. I was glad that I met Dr. Wang on April 19, 2017. Dr. Wang checked my neck and said that I need to have an X-ray on the neck and spine because the blood circulation in the head was not smooth. He said that I looked very depressed. With Dr. Wang’s referral, I took X-Ray in Image Center. The report of the X-Ray says “Hyper-mobility on extension at the C3/4 level…” The X-ray report indicated that my spine cord at C3/4 had shifted 2mm which caused headache. On April 21 I brought the X-Ray report and CD of the X-Ray to Dr. Wang. Since then I visited Dr. Wang three times a week for a few weeks. After that I received treatment twice a week. He gave me acupuncture, hot Chinese medicine bag, massage, and opening the body gates. I started to join Chi Gong class. From Chi Gong class, I learned Herguan quantum glorious universe and the beauty of the harmony between universe and human body. How the energy of the universe can come into human body and drives away the pains and diseases after the body gates are opened. Every night before I go to bed I practiced 30 minutes Chi Gong that Dr. Wang taught in the class. I was able to sleep deeply in the night since I practiced Chi Gong. I stopped taking Tylenol and Motrin. I noticed that after three weeks treatment my walking steps were faster than before. The energy came back to my body. I was able to smile naturally. The most important was my headache reduced from level 7-8 to level 2-3. I was able to concentrate when I was working. After a five months treatments, the pain in the head was under the control. Depression and lower back pain disappeared.
Dr. Wang noticed that my blood pressure was high since the first day I came to the clinic. (My blood pressure was normal before the car accident.) After one month treatment from Dr. Wang, the blood pressure became normal. To my surprise was my headache had a big improvement since then. I felt no more sharp pain in the head.
The intern students in the University of East West Medicine are kind and care the patients. I am impressed for their professional attitude, knowledge, diligent, and eager to learn.
