Our Founder

The Yang Institute of Integrative Medicine was founded by Jingduan Yang, M.D. in 2004. Dr. Yang is a board-certified psychiatrist and 5th generation Chinese medicine and acupuncture doctor. In his early years, he followed a comprehensive educational path through top medical, educational institutions in both China and the West.

As he was learning, he found that these radically different medical systems – Chinese and Western medicine – seemingly clashed with and contradicted each other at times, while simultaneously, amazingly complemented each other! And from this unique perspective, he founded the Yang Institute of Integrative medicine.
