About Me

Wei Cheng

I was originally trained as a biochemist, and received a Bachelor of Science Degree from the prestigious Nankai University in China. I came to the United States to pursue my graduate degree with full scholarship. I spent more than a decade as a scientist worked on several pre-clinical and clinical trials, developed approved clinical diagnostic assays and generated multiple US patents.

​Having grown up in a family of engineers and studied scientific theories all my life, I was at first not a believer of traditional Chinese medicine. My interest in it started after I met my father-in-law, Dr. Shiyue Sun, who was a practitioner. Dr. Sun opened a whole new world to me, I saw many patients, most of whom have been considered hopeless in the eyes of modern medicine, get cured and are living healthy, normal lives. By talking to Dr. Sun, the holistic and natural methods made so much more sense to me. Fascinated by it, I made the career change and finished my Acupuncture program Magna Cum Laude from New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

​I practiced in Long Island and Manhattan before I moved to the Capital Region. My practice style incorporates both Traditional Chinese Medicine and modern scientific theories.
