Giant on the move
Beijing’s American acupuncturist
The U.S. President may be in China but it is business as usual for Beijing’s American acupuncturist.
Connecticut born Bryan McMahon is treating a Chinese patient in his traditional courtyard in the backstreets of Beijing.
Bryan has spent years studying Chinese traditional medicine in both Beijing and Shanghai.
He says that part of the reason he chose Chinese medicine over its western alternative was the way in which it is so deeply rooted within Chinese culture.
Bryan’s patient Sai Na believes the American-Chinese approach to acupuncture offers a new and improved form of treatment.
