In 1995, after obtaining her license to practice acupuncture in Quebec, Aina immediately started her practice in three different subleased offices in Montreal. As her practice grew, she consolidated her practice and moved to the current location on 4177 Decarie Blvd, Montreal, in March of 2002. Her clinic was renamed as Clinique Sinocare.
As her list of patients continued to expand rapidly, James Wang (王恽), her husband officially joined her practice and soon took over all non-treatment responsibilities in the clinic, so Aina could concentrate on patient care. In March of 2007, Aina and James incorporated their business together and the Clinique Sinocare Inc. was born.
Other than her unique educational and clinical experience in both Chinese and Western medicine, there are several important personal characteristics that contributed to her success as an acupuncturist and Chinese medicine doctor. She is calm, caring, sympathetic, meticulous, dedicated, professional, and extremely knowledgeable and experienced in both Chinese and Western medicine, especially in the treatment of infertility and gynecologic disorders.
Aina’s credentials include:
1. Licensed acupuncturist, Quebec, 1995
2. Master’s degree in gynecology, China, 1989
3. MD degree of Chinese & Western medicine, China, 1982
4. Apprentice to one of the best TCM gynecology masters – Professor Luo Yuan Kai （罗元恺教授）
5. 30 years of experience in Chinese & Western medicine
In 1977, after a grueling nation-wide examination in China, Aina was admitted into one of the five most prestigious Traditional Chinese Medicine universities in China – Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. On average, less than 1 % of total applicants were admitted into universities in that year, because it was the first year Chinese universities opened to applicants after 10 years of the Great Culture Revolution in China.
In comparison, Harvard University accepts about 7% to 10% of applicants in recent years.
In the summer of 1982, she graduated from the university and obtained her medical doctor’s degree in both Chinese and Western medicine. During her five years of full-time study in the university, Aina was a “straight-A” student, and that earned her the honor to choose her favorite gynecology department in the hospital to start her career, as the vast majority of jobs were dictated to each university graduate in China at that period.
After five years of practicing both Chinese and Western medicine, she went through another round of even more grueling examinations and was admitted to a master’s degree program in gynecology in the Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Only 1% to 2% of university graduates were admitted to post-graduate programs in China during that period. As always, Aina was again an “straight-A” student among a group of the most elite students. In 1989, Aina received her master’s degree in gynecology.
In the summer of 1983, after doing her residency in internal medicine, surgery, gynecology, and pediatric departments for one year, she started to work as a medical doctor in the gynecology department of the Second Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. With some luck and exceptional ability, she was chosen to be one of the last two apprentices to one of the most celebrated contemporary TCM gynecology master – Professor Luo Yuan Kai （罗元恺教授).
In the following years, under the guidance of professor Luo, she had treated thousands and thousands of gynecology patients with a large variety of illnesses, using acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, pharmaceutical drugs, and surgery. In her daily practice, she often used acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to treat her patients, but if needed, she prescribed medication or performed surgery.
Due to her outstanding ability to perform complex surgeries, she soon earned the honor to be the “first knife” to perform the largest and most difficult surgery in the gynecology department – hysterectomy. Those were the years that she built a solid foundation for her future career development in Montreal.
Since 2002, she gradually focused her practice to treat infertility and gynecology patients. Over the years, her professionalism and treatment efficacy have earned the admiration of countless infertility patients and impressed numerous fertility doctors in Quebec
With such high academic and professional achievement and long clinical experience, you may think that Aina is a nerd with thick glasses and gray hair. Well, you will be surprised when you meet her in person. She is a vibrant young-looking woman with full black hair. She was a natural athlete who frequently excelled in discus (铁饼), javelin (标枪), and shot-put (铅球) competitions in university, and some of her university records were held for many years.
After settling down in Montreal, she has always been physically active and loves the great outdoors. Her favorite sports include: cross-country skiing, long-distance cycling, hiking, aerobic and weight training and Tai Chi.
Here is an excerpt of her recent achievements:
1. In November 2011, she climbed Jade Mountain（玉山, 4000 m above sea level and the highest peak in Taiwan）in a single day. She and her husband covered 28 km of treacherous mountain road in 11 hours.
2. In July 2012, she completed an 800 km bike journey in Belgium and the Netherlands.
3. In Feb 9th and 10th of 2013, she participated Canadian Ski Marathon and completed 84 km of cross country ski trails in 2 days.
