The last Chinese Corner of spring quarter will be held on Thursday, May 31, at 7 p.m. in Thompson Hall, Room 317, at the University of Washington.
We will host a public lecture by Liangxi Zheng, who teaches acupuncture techniques and participates in clinical training at the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine.
Professor Zheng will talk about various methods of traditional Chinese medicine: exercise to restore health, including qigong and tai chi; Chinese herbal medicine and foot massage; and acupuncture, including body acupuncture and ear acupuncture therapy.
