About Us

“Ping” is a Chinese word that means balance, health, tranquility, harmony and peace. In hopes of bringing “Ping” to all people, Dr. Liyan Lu and her husband, Mr. Gan, founded Ping’s Acupuncture & Herb Center in 2000 in the city of Santa Clarita, California. For over a decade, Dr. Lu and her staff have thrived on bringing balance, peace and health to all their patients. As a 2010 New Year’s resolution, Dr. Lu has decided to publish her formulas, techniques, and findings for free on www.heathyping.com in order to bring “Ping” to all who seeks a healthier lifestyle.

Our Mission

Famous proverb: Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for the rest of his life.

It is our mission to improve people’s lives by teaching preventive care. We wish to share our knowledge of health preservation and nourishment to help everyone achieve a healthy and happy life. To fulfill our mission, Dr. Lu will periodically publish her clinical experience, nutrition recipes and herbal formulas on this website.
