For Jade Fang, her profession is a real gift. Born in Taiwan, Fang is a second-generation acupuncturist who followed her parents’ footsteps and has been helping people heal in Winona for almost a decade. Fang hasn’t always been around the Midwest. When she was 6, she moved to Florida from Taiwan and grew up there, watching her mom curing people at her acupuncture clinic. By being exposed to the techniques from her family, she decided to go into the same field as well. She then attended college and kept pursuing her education goal through a master program in acupuncture at the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine. Afterward, she took up an internship in Shanghai that gave her the practical knowledge she needed to start her own business. In 2009, love brought her to Minnesota, and Fang opened up her acupuncture clinic in downtown Winona. “I was scared at first,” Fang said. “It wasn’t easy to move from Shanghai to Minnesota.” At her clinic, Fang wants to make sure her patients experience complete relaxation in a cozy and warm environment.
