Brian Yang, MS, LAc
Background and skills
I earned a Bachelor’s in Science in Kinesiology Movement Science at Penn State University and worked with a variety of Penn State athletics teams. This experience sparked my interest in sports performance and human anatomy.
After graduation, I pursued a Master of Acupuncture Studies degree from the Won Institute of Graduate studies. There, I learned different styles of acupuncture, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture Physical Medicine, and Five Element. At Won I also acquired knowledge in meditation, Qi Gong, cupping, gua sha, Eastern nutrition, and other skills.
As I dove deeper into pain management through my student clinic experience, I was motivated to learn more and specialize in this area. I started working with Grace, Paolo, and the rest of the Bridge Acupuncture team during my first year at Won Institute and am very grateful to have a team that has supported and encouraged me in my journey as a practitioner.
I continue to study the art of acupuncture at every opportunity to hone my skills and acquire updated approaches with which to help my patients. The study of medicine is a life-long pursuit, and this is what makes it a demanding but fulfilling profession.
Of course, balance is also important! In my free time, I enjoy weight training, traveling, reading, and most importantly, spending time with my family.
