Dr. Zhenguo "Tim" Ding, a licensed acupuncturist in Florida, is passionate about Traditional Chinese Medicine and its value to an individual's physical and mental well-being.
Dr. Ding started his medical career in 1984, completing a dynamic eight-year medical program in China where he was trained in both Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine. In his native China, Dr. Ding is an orthopedist.
A fully trained doctor with a medical degree, Dr. Ding worked in a large hospital in China for more than a decade, treating hundreds of thousands of patients and teaching students at Qingdao medical school.
As an acupuncturist, Dr. Ding uses a combination of Chinese therapies to help clients, from teenagers to those in their nineties, to achieve an optimal level of health and wellness. Besides the placement of threadlike needles into focused locations on the body to release trapped energies, Dr. Ding offers acupressure, cupping, moxibustion and tui na—a form of bodywork meant to regulate your qi.
What's the ouch factor? Dr. Ding's patients feel little or no discomfort as the needles are inserted. The process itself is typically painless. Different sensations, such as slight soreness, numbness, warmth or pressure, may be felt. The feeling, though unfamiliar, is often described as pleasant and comforting.
