Dr. Shengyan ‘Grace’ Tan, was born in Chengdu, China into a traditional Chinese medicine family. In their family lineage of Tan’s, her father and grandfather are both Chinese medical doctors. Her father, a well-known university professor, is an expert in dietary therapy and herbal preparation. After completed her PhD in traditional Chinese medicine at Chengdu University of TCM, Dr. Tan taught TCM in Chengdu University of TCM and also worked as a TCM doctor at the teaching hospital of Chengdu University of TCM. In 2011, following several visiting professors invites at institutions abroad, Dr. Tan made Austin, Texas her home and became a full-time faculty member and professor at AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. While the focus of her education has been on ENT(ear-nose-throat), ophthalmology (eye disease) and classic herbal prescriptions, Dr. Tan always comes back to the basics of classic TCM. “Returning to the root of Chinese medicine reminds me that everything is connected”. she explains her philosophy of the medicine. “TCM treats each person and each disease as a holistic system, so if you understand the principles of the medicine one can effectively treat all kinds of problems. In western medicine, if you specialize in something like ophthalmology, you can only treat the eyes”. Dr. Tan has more than 11 years of clinical experience of treating neurological, sensory organs and psycho-social disorders.
