Traditional Asian Health Services is dedicated to providing quality preventative health care in several traditional fields of Chinese medicine. It was envisioned by the late John C. Kang Sr., the founder of Health Essentials in Carytown, who hoped to educate the public about Chinese approaches to mental, emotional, and physical health.
As our Chinese name "Fu Kang Tang" implies, we want to help our visitors find fulfilling and healthy lives through exercise, counseling, and treatment.
A group of practitioners of traditional Asian health is now networking with the common goal of creating a Center of Traditional Asian Health, located in Richmond, Virginia.

John Kang, L.Ac, M.S.
Coming from a family with several Western Medical Doctors and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)practitioners, John was exposed to acupuncture and herbal treatment during his teens. At that time, his uncle and current advisor Hsiung-Fei Kang had immigrated from China and showed John the use of moxa treatment and herbal medicine.
From 1995, while living in Taiwan, John started an acupuncture apprenticeship with Doctor Betty Lung and had his first chance to treat patients for common ailments such as headaches, back pain, insomnia, and others. He began formal study of TCM in 1999 at the Meiji College of Oriental Medicine in Berkeley, CA, the branch school of the Meiji University of Oriental Medicine in Kyoto, Japan. He has also done clinical training at the Sino-Japanese People's Friendship Hospital in Beijing, China. In practice, he has a particular interest in treating infertility, gastro-intestinal disorders and mental-emotional issues.
