After graduating from high school in Charlottesville, Virginia, Xia Chen found a personal respect for acupuncture when she helped translate for a friend who needed treatment. The acupuncturist inspired her to go back to school and learn Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Then, Xia Chen studied at the Virginia University of Integrated Medicine in Fairfax and has a Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and obtained a Doctorate in Oriental Medicine. She was trained in both Chinese and Korean style acupuncture and has studied Chinese herbal medicine. Since graduation, she has been partially joining Dr. Xiaoming Tian’s team.
