Dr. Liu is one of a few acupuncturists who holds both MD and PhD degrees with oriental and western medical training. She graduated from ShanDong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in 1988. After she practiced Chinese medicine and acupuncture in hospitals in China for over ten years, she moved to Japan to earn her PhD of Medical Sciences at Kyoto University in 2005. She then came to Washington University Medical School for her post-doctoral fellowship. Now she is a nationally certified acupuncturist by NCCAOM, as well as a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Missouri. Dr. Liu uses her oriental and western medical training background to diagnose the root of disease, which enables her to provide the holistic treatment that will help her patients live a pain-free and healthy life. She successfully treats a wide range of diseases, including arthritis, migraines, menopause syndrome, GI issues, depression, anxiety, pre- and post-surgical pain, and other common health issues. Her strong medical training background, passions for her patients’ well-being, and her painless needle technique have satisfied patients who trust her for their ongoing health.
