During her graduate work, Shanti traveled to Sichuan Province in China to receive additional didactic training at the University of Chengdu of Traditional Chinese Medicine and clinical training at Chengdu University hospital specializing in respiratory disorders. She is now a licensed acupuncturist certified in the state of California and is CNT certified by the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.  She is a member of CSOMA and the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.  Shanti is excited to be a part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic under the direction of Dr. Helen Hu.
