About

Welcome to TCM Time! My name is Kathy Yang and I am passionate about sharing my knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to help people attain health and balance—spiritually, mentally and physically.

I have been practicing Chinese martial arts, Tai Chi, and Qigong for over three decades. I began training at the age of six under the guidance of my father Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming.

As an active competitor, I have been awarded on several occasions the Grand Champion title in both internal and external Chinese martial arts from renowned US tournaments such as:

  • Tiger Claw Elite Championship (Kung Fu Magazine)
  • International Chinese Martial Arts Championship (ICMAC)
  • USA Wushu Kungfu Federation (USAWKF)
  • A Taste of China USA All-Taijiquan Tournament

I received my Master’s degree with distinction in Chinese Medicine from Middlesex University in London, UK with a joint degree from Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. I also hold my BSc in Clinical Exercise Physiology from Boston University and was honored with the Scarlet Key Award, one of the University’s highest academic honors. I bring a wide range of clinical experience and knowledge working in a Beijing hospital and in neuroscience research at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital.

I am based in New England where I regularly teach classes and workshops, as well as offer private lessons and consultations. I have also taught at the New England School of Acupuncture at MCPHS University and in other locations around the United States, South America and Europe.

I created TCM Time as a resource for you to discover Chinese medicine through videos, online classes, blog posts, podcast, and much more. With this platform I will introduce you to some of my favorite topics such as:

  • Stress relief and pain management
  • Acupressure massage and meridian health
