Teresa Shen, LAC
For many children, aches, pains and "boo-boos" are just a regular part of growing up. But for Teresa T. Shen, L.Ac, they were stepping stones on a path to a fulfilling career. At age five, Shen suffered from chronic bloody noses. During one of these episodes, her father, an acupuncturist, gently inserted a needle into a spot on her arm. This marked the end of Shen's nosebleeds — and the beginning of her lifelong fascination with Chinese medicine. Inspired by her father and amazed by the firsthand results she saw from acupuncture, first for her nosebleeds and later for severe abdominal pain, Shen herself decided to pursue a career in acupuncture and Chinese medicine. During her schooling, she apprenticed alongside her father. Today, Shen carries on a family tradition as the latest of four generations of Chinese Medical practitioners. Shen, who earned her Masters of Chinese Medicine in China at Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2006, is now CEO of Eastern Medical Center in Pleasanton, where she also serves as lead physician and acupuncturist.
