Our History As A Team

 Dr. Lifang Liang O.M.D., L.Ac. has regretfully closed her practice due to personal health reasons in November 2012. In an effort to provide continued support for our patients, a new clinic called Secret Garden Acupuncture was opened in December of 2012. Until this time, Suzanne and Yu-Hsuan helped many patients achieve healthy pregnancies as staff acupuncturists under the mentorship of Dr. Lifang Liang.  We are grateful to have been gifted with the wealth of knowledge Dr. Liang has past on to us. Our experience, both as students and working along side Dr. Liang in her practice.

As a team at Secret Garden Acupuncture, we look forward to continuing her work. We are confident employing the traditional Chinese medical diagnosing, acupuncture point prescriptions, and formulation of Chinese herbal remedies that Dr. Liang proved to be so successful in her practice.

Traditional Chinese medicine can be used to treat all health conditions. We will remain focused on the dynamics of fertility, gynecology, pre-natal, and post-natal care in addition to providing treatment for other medical presentations as needed. Our aim to assist patients reach their health care goals with the best possible care.
