The Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences was established in 1982 by Master Wei Tsuei. At the time, Master Tsuei operated the Taoist Center, a non-profit organization focused on educating the masses in Taiji, Qigong, and meditation, as well as TCM. Even though the majority of the Western world did not accept acupuncture and TCM as a prominent, viable form of health care, Master Tsuei and the first Academy directors knew that introducing organized TCM to the Western world would be the first step towards realizing health care integration and bridging the cultural gap between the East and West. Thus, the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences was founded as a private, non-profit institute for the training and advancement of traditional Chinese medicine within the context of Chinese culture. As an accomplished practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, Taiji Quan, and Taiji meditation, Master Tsuei paved the way for the first official Oakland TCM program. The Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences became the second institution of TCM in the United States.

Throughout its existence, the Academy cultivated a community where people from all walks of life could receive affordable, effective TCM health care. Now, the ACCHS clinic is a busy center for preventative medicine and serves as the institutional teaching clinic where students train to become competent health care providers.

Over the years, the Academy has matriculated 553 graduates...the passing rate for the California Licensing Exam always reaches 85% or so, and the National Certification Exam is often 100%, which proves the preparedness, competence, and excellence of our graduates.

While the Academy’s principle purpose is to enable students to obtain a license to practice acupuncture, it does not stop there. The curriculum encourages the philosophy that through the healing of oneself one can understand how to heal others. The emphasis is on cultivation of the intellect and the comprehension of human nature.
