Alumnus of Tai Hsuan Foundation Hawaii (World Medicine Institute) and studied under the founder Chang Yi Hsiang. The Institute originally opened as The School of the Six Chinese Arts in 1970 and was formally registered with the State in 1972. In 1974, some of the school's founders helped establish the Hawaii State Acupuncture Board. At the time, Hawaii was the second state to legally recognize and license acupuncturists. Chang Yi Hsiang (Dr.Chang) served from 1974 to 1978 as a Commissioner on the first Hawaii State Board of Acupuncture. The school was unique as it had a forty year history of training students in traditional Taoist healing arts, acupunture, Qi Gong, and herbal medicine. Originally from Shang Ching, Lung Hu Shan, Jiangxi, Dr.Chang began her Taoist training with Master Chang En Pu at age six in the monastery.  In 1969, she became the 64th generation Taoist lineage holder of a 2000 year tradition inherited from the Han dynasty.
