Originally from Taipei, Taiwan, Dr. Chen grew up with a strong herbal tradition — her mother often used medicinal herbs in seasonal dishes when preparing the family’s daily meals. As a result, Dr. Chen continued studying the healing properties of food and plants, a journey that eventually led her to devote 12 years to practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine at the prestigious Tao of Wellness in Santa Monica, California. In 2017, Dr. Chen left to start her own practice where she offers herbal medicine, nutrition, acupuncture, cupping and facial rejuvenation among many other services.
Dr. Chen's extensive work with fertility, obstetric and gynecology has enabled her to help many many patients suffering from postpartum symptoms and other fertility-related struggles. These also interactions inspired her to co-author the book, “Sitting Moon” with Dr. Daoshing Ni, which touches on important themes relating to how a new mother must be cared for in the first month after giving birth. Dr. Chen’s practice also extends into pediatric care for children.
Dr. Chen earned both her Masters and Doctoral degrees at Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Los Angeles and her Bachelors in Psychology from Boston University. She also completed a post-graduate residency in the Chinese Orthopedics and Traumatology Department at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan. Dr. Chen is certified in Chinese Nutrition, Cosmetic Acupuncture and is a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
