From Our Website

Life Rising was established in 1985 by Zhengang Guo, our master herbalist and acupuncturist. It is the culmination of his lifelong pursuit of proficiency in TCM and Western medicine. This pursuit led him to Chicago where Life Rising was founded. Life Rising provides background information for general knowledge and recommendations for educational opportunity in TCM. Be sure to browse our site to learn more about us and TCM. As you'll soon discover, we strive to offer the best of TCM in Chicago.


Spearheaded by the best herbalist and acupuncturist in Chicago, our TCM School continues to lead the way. Master Guo and his team of TCM practitioners incorporated Chinese herbs and other related TCM methods into his practice well before TCM gained momentum in the United States. The Chicago School of Traditional Chinese Medicine is Master Guo's next venture. In the spirit of continuing education, Master Guo also makes a monthly seminar available to guide patients and the general public in the pursuit of a healthy, balanced lifestyle through traditional Chinese medicine.
