Sun is a graduate and teaching assistant at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM). He began his journey into the medical field by pursuing and obtaining a doctorate in pharmacy.  He practiced for 10 years as a pharmacist before shifting gears to pursue traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).  Burdened with multiple knee surgeries for sports-related injuries, he set out to explore less invasive options to the western medical paradigm of pharmaceutical and surgical interventions for pain relief and recovery.  With TCM, he discovered a path leading to a more natural, holistic, and balanced state of well-being and healing. He decided to forego practicing pharmacy to pursue his life’s calling. After graduating from OCOM, Sun spent two months volunteering in Nepal with the Acupuncture Relief Project, providing primary care and medical support to those with limited access to immediate and reliable healthcare. He has now joined our team of passionate and dedicated healers to address a wide array of ailments and conditions.  
 
Combining both his western and eastern medical knowledge, Sun incorporates the “best of both worlds” in his approach to healing and recovery.  He addresses all conditions and disease states and has a keen interest in physical assessment, orthopedics, and sports/work-related injuries, and musculoskeletal disorders.  He utilizes acupuncture, herbal medicine and a wide array of auxiliary healing modalities – Tuina massage, cupping, Gua Sha, moxibustion, and electro-stimulation – to effectively address the root cause of the condition.  

In his free time, Sun enjoys sports, exercise, martial arts, reading, and traveling to faraway destinations.
