Anthony DiSalvo, LAc MSOM

Anthony is a TCM Physician & California board certified Acupuncturist. He has been apprenticing with Master Shoubin Jia Yu for 6 years with interdisciplinary training involving martial arts, tuina, acupuncture and custom Chinese herbal formulas. While attending the Master's program at Dongguk University, LA, he worked at Yu Dayi Chinese Medicine Clinic for 4 years with an additional 1,500 hrs of clinical observation of the Yu Family method. Anthony now operates the Yu Dayi Chinese Medicine Clinic in Encino, CA. He is also a traditional martial arts and qi gong practitioner of 17 years. His extensive training had been under Master Wang Rengang in New York since 2005, for Plum Blossom Praying Mantis, Dachenquan & Xin Yi. It was Master Wang who introduced him to his kung fu brother Master Yu, and as we say, the rest is history. Through dedicated studying of martial arts Anthony was slowly introduced to Chinese medicine and tuina methods in order to help fix up all the bumps and bruises that go along with training rigorously. Qi Gong training is required and is an integral part of the Yu Family method. His journey with health issues and the desire to find a holistic way towards recovery lead him towards TCM. It was through this process of naturally overcoming his lifelong issues with environmental and food allergies, mental deficits and weak immune system which ultimately brought him to study under Master Yu. He now wishes to pass on what he learns to his patients and community. As a result of benefiting from the tuina training and helping his own daughter, Anthony conducts ongoing pediatric TCM massage classes for parents & kids, teaching how to utilize Chinese massage to overcome illness and prevent the onset of acquired diseases. It truly is amazing to watch a child thrive when their health is more balanced. Now, to help reach more family's and have more of an impact on children globally, he created Tuina4Kids Online learning. Anthony really sees how simple yet important it is to take care of our children. Tuina was the missing ingredient in his journey to a more balanced and healthy body. He wants to help parents give their children the best opportunity in life with a healthier mind and body. He wishes to bridge the cultural learning gap and share this helpful knowledge with you all.
