Autumn Bear M.S., L.AC, DIPL AC

My formal training in classical Chinese medicine was transmitted directly to me by the esteemed Taoist master and 88th generation practitioner Jeffrey c. Yuen of the jade purity and dragon gate lineage. I apprenticed with the commonwealth herbal program in Boston mastering dietary therapy and western herbal medicine.  I worked toward a Masters of Public Health at the University of Arizona (with a specialty in international medicine and maternal and child health), where my continued focus was in the areas of epidemiology, nutrition, environmental health, physiology, and psychology.  I am licensed to practice acupuncture by the states of New York and New Jersey, and I am a certified diplomate of acupuncture as conferred by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAM).  My Masters of Science in acupuncture is from the Swedish Institute of Health Sciences in New York City. 

I have had the great privilege of teaching as a professor at the Pacific college of oriental medicine (New York), as well as in programs focused on integrating acupuncture into mainstream medicine at both the University Paris xi Faculte de medecine Paris-sud (Paris, France), and at the Wu Ming Dao healing center (Moscow, Russia).
