The Chinese calligraphy hanging in our clinic is a piece of artwork that
was custom made in 1982 by a famous Shanghai, China calligrapher.
The meaning of the four Chinese words on the wooden planks have
always reminded us, since the beginning, of how our clinic in Houston
should be operated; that the paramount importance of our business
should be to render medical treatment to all who are in need of help
regardless of their background. This means that we operate our clinic
with the spirit of 杏林春滿.
"THE PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE OF OUR
BUSINESS SHOULD BE TO RENDER MEDICAL TREATMENT TO ALL WHO ARE IN NEED OF HELP REGARDLESS OF THEIR BACKGROUND."
Now the story of "杏林春滿". In the era of the Three Kingdoms in China,
some 1,800 years ago, a general, Shi Xie, became mortally sick and was
in a coma that lasted for three days. Finally, a herbal doctor by the name
of Dong Feng of the Wu Dynasty was requested to give the unconscious
general treatment. Within hours after administering the first herbal
treatment, General Shi Xie opened his eyes and moved his arms. Five
hours later he was able to sit upright in his bed and four days passed
before the previously comatose man regained his speech. If Shi Xie was
an unknown farmer, this surprisingly miraculous treatment by herbalist
Dong Feng would not have garnered much publicity, however, Shi Xie
was no unknown farmer, he was a very well known and respected general
and Dong Feng's seemingly magical healing made the good doctor
renowned both far and wide across the land practically overnight. Then
something unexpected happened. Dong Feng shunned his newfound
celebrity status and removed himself from society to a remote place in
Lushan Jiangxi. Here he acquired himself a sizeable piece of land far
away from society to live by himself
as a hermit, but his solitude was not
long lasting as the news of his
successful treatment of the general
spread, people continued to seek out
his services. When his number of
patients increased, he began to refuse
payment which was unheard of at
that time. In lieu of a fee, he began
requesting that patients pay him by
planting apricot trees. Depending on the severity
of the illness being treated would determine how
many trees you were requested to plant as
payment. Those patients suffering from more
serious illnesses were told to plant five trees and
those with less life threatening illnesses were
requested to plant just one apricot tree on the
grounds of his property, better known today as a
It did not take long until his apricot orchard
began to grow in size. Having always had a love
for animals, Dong Feng used his apricot ranch
as a safe haven for all of the beasts of the earth
and the birds of the sky, and in return, they took
care of all of the weeds which grew in the
orchard. In just a few years, the number of
apricot trees surpassed 100,000 and Dong Feng
had the idea to build a warehouse to house all
"WHEN HIS NUMBER OF PATIENTS INCREASED, HE
BEGAN TO REFUSE PAYMENT WHICH WAS UNHEARD OF AT THAT TIME."
This unparalled commitment to take care of the sick and poor of society
was a very difficult attitude to find at any other time or place, which is
why Dong Feng is so highly revered by the Chinese medical community.
Dong Feng has left behind a legacy of practicing medicine which many
Chinese deem is worthy of imitation and is still promoted in modern
times. Today, the term "Apricot Forest" is used as another term for
medical community and many medical professionals refer to themselves
as "persons of the apricot forest".
"DONG FENG HAS LEFT BEHIND A LEGACY
OF PRACTICING MEDICINE WHICH MANY
CHINESE DEEM WORTHY OF IMITATION AND
IS STILL PROMOTED IN MODERN TIMES."
Our acupuncture clinic is among
the first of it's kind in Houston
and after 32 years of practicing
Chinese acupuncture we feel
extremely lucky to have lasted
this long. Back in 1982, we could
have never dared to imagine all
that we have accomplished and
that which we hope to continue to.
As of today, we have drawn
patients from every state in the U.S.A. and some 30 other foreign
Over some 20 years ago, we adopted a policy of never refusing treatment
to patients because of financial incapability; we have supplied treatment
to those without jobs or without enough money to pay. In this regard, we
feel we have an orchard full of apricot trees of our very own, just as Dong
Feng would have liked it.
"WE FEEL WE HAVE
AN ORCHARD FULL
OF APRICOT TREES
OF OUR VERY OWN, JUST AS DONG FENG WOULD HAVE LIKED IT."
of the apricots as they were harvested, then he posted a public notice to
inform all who wished to purchase his apricots that they need not inform
him, but to just leave a bucket of rice in exchange for a bucket of apricots.
He then used the rice to give away to the poor.
