December 18, 2011, Dr. Cheng Kai and Dr. Yang Jinsheng, descendants of the famous Traditional Chinese Medicine professional, Cheng Xinnong, established the Cheng’s Acupuncture American Heritage Center with the University of East West Medicine. 

Cheng Xinnong was born into a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) family at Huaiyin, Jiangsu Province in 1921.  He studied basic knowledge of TCM from the age of10, and was taught by the famous professional, Lu Muhan, at age 15.  Four years later, he started a clinical practice that lasted for more than 70 years.  He was expert in acupuncture theory, acupuncture clinical treatment, teaching, research, and foreign exchange of ideas.  Cheng Xinnong was the Chief Scientist of Meridians Research in China’s “National Pan Deng Plan.” He hosted multiple academic meridian research forums.  Cheng has proposed a variety of academic theories and suggestions, and his Chinese Acupuncture Science is the popular textbook for Acupuncture internationally; it is one of the California Acupuncture Board’s designated teaching materials. 

Cheng Xinnong is the first Chinese Academic of Engineering in Chinese acupuncture, one of first national TCM professionals, and one of the pioneers of the new Chinese acupuncture as a career path.  He is regarded as the Dean of the Chinese acupuncture profession.

Cheng Xinnong emphasized the importance of needle holding to gain the balance between fingers and wrist force when needling.  During his long time clinical practice and teaching experience, he created an easy  to learn and to teach, and less painful needling technique, which is called “Cheng’s Sancai Acupuncture” from the Chinese philosophy  of Heaven, Earth, and Human.  

Dr. Cheng Kai is Cheng Xinnong’s direct descendant, an Assistant Professor at Beijing Traditional Chinese Medicine University, and the primary inheritor of Cheng’s Acupuncture tradition..

Dr. Yang Jinsheng is the Secretory of China’s Chinese Acupuncture Association, deputy director of the Institute of the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, and also an inheritor of Cheng’s Acupuncture tradition.
