From Seven Generations of Physicians of Chinese Medicine

Wei Li, L.Ac.

Despite being the youngest of four daughters, Wei Li earned the sum of her father’s knowledge of Chinese medicine. She was born in Hefei in the Anhui province of China. She took an interest in Chinese medicine from an early age, and began studying acupuncture and herbal medicine at the age of 12 under the tutelage of her father. Within 5 years of study, Wei Li opened her own practice as an acupuncturist and herbalist Since then she has also studied many traditional treatises with considerable depth, including texts on exceedingly fine details of acupuncture and herbal remedies.

Four years later, with greater aspirations and the support of her parents, Wei Li attended the Anhui Medical University, and graduated magna cum laude with a medical degree in western medicine. She then went on to attend graduate school to specialize in nephrology in both eastern and western medicine, again graduating magna cum laude. Within one year of her graduation, her medical research papers were twice awarded first place in the Anhui Province.

Wei Li has practiced acupuncture and herbal medicine for nearly 50 years. Since coming to the United States, she taught at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) for over 12 years. She currently practices in Portland, Salem, and Tigard. Read her patients' testimonials.
