Professional Experience

Hanbiao entered the Shanghai Institute of Acupuncture & Meridian in 1984, and had worked as a researcher in the field of Ancient Chinese Acupuncture Theory until 1989. At the same time, he served part time at the outpatient department of the Institute as an acupuncture doctor.

When he was in Japan since 1991, Hanbiao kept doing practice in the fields of both Acupuncture and Chinese TuiNa therapy—a therapeutic bodywork from TCM. In the fall of 1996, Hanbiao co-found a complementary medical school in Tokyo, and had served as the dean and later the president while giving students lectures at class and supervision in the school’s student clinic. Hanbiao had been tremendously active with compassion in the school—Research Institute of Holistic Therapy until he left Japan in the summer of 2000.

In 2001, Hanbiao was nationally certified in Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in the U.S.A. He has been licensed in Maryland since 2002 to practice Chinese Acupuncture in Baltimore and Ellicott City /Columbia area.
