Leslie Shanai began her career in the healing arts in 1989 via extensive training in diagnostic style massage therapy at Hawaiian Island school of Body Therapies. During her training she also became a student teacher for the last year.

 Leslie Shanai began her studies into the 6 healing arts of China after receiving help from an acupuncturist for a chronic    health  issue. A few years after graduating Tai Hsuan Foundation Collage in 1996, Leslie Shanai became a professor for her Alma Mater for a total of 3 years. In 2002, Leslie Shanai and Chad (and their baby daughter) moved to Ashland to begin a shared practice. In 2007, Leslie Shanai and Chad, co-founded the first group style acupuncture center in the Rogue Valley: People’s Choice.
Leslie Shanai’s gift, in the realm of Chinese medicine, is in the art of pulse reading. Qi Kung training, especially taught by a Master, is the foundation required to become adept at pulse reading. Sensitivty to our own Qi is                                developed by internal self study, also known as Qi Kung. Acupuncture came into existence via Qi Kung and is therefore a very   important component to developing good diagnostic skills.
About Leslie Shanai’s Acupuncture school, Tai Hsuan:
Dr.  Lily Chang Hsiang is the founder of the school and is a 64th generation Taoist and Qi Kung master. Lily began her training into the six healing arts of China via a Taoist dr lily siou 1 Monastery, where she lived full time, beginning at the age of six. The traditional methods she learned were passed down orally. This was significant for the times, in that many important books of healing were destroyed during Mao’s reign. As a young woman, Lily was given the honor to uphold the lineage and was instructed to move to the West to bring forth this important medicine. Lily chose Honolulu Hawaii. After exploring Honolulu a little, Lily chose a large tree filled park near the ocean to begin performing Qi Kung. Lily received her first student that first day. After 6 months of teaching Qi Kung at beautiful Kapiolani Park, Lily now had 200 students. At that time she asked the class: “Who wants to learn more about the six healing arts of China?” Of those 200 students, 20 decided to go deeper, and so Tai Hsuan was born. Since that initial first bunch of students Tai Hsuan has continued to keep the classes small and intimate.
Acupuncture comes from a very old tradition and when we receive care in this medicine we also have the support of the lineage which has brought it into existence. It’s like getting to be part of a very wise family that takes us under their wing and shares knowledge that is beyond words.
Leslie Shanai has very much gratitude for both her acupuncture and massage teachers. They both gave tremendous support in helping her find a career she has passion and love for.
