Dr. Richard Yennie '53, founder Acupuncture Society of America (ASA)
Richard Yennie, DC, Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM) was one of the first non-Asians in the modern era to bring acupuncture to the United States and the first to combine acupuncture and chiropractic in a healing arts practice. Dr. Yennie has included acupuncture as a central part of his chiropractic practice in Kansas City for more than half a century and has taught it to tens of thousands of chiropractors. When he began, acupuncture in North America was hidden in backrooms in the Asian-American communities of large cities, principally New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Now, it is well on the way to becoming an integral part of American culture and mainstream health care.

Dr. Branden Rech - Rech Chiropractic and Acupuncture, Lincoln, Neb.
Dr. Rech received his Acupuncture education from Dr. Richard Yennie, a 1953 Cleveland graduate, at the Acupuncture Society of America. Dr. Rech is nationally board certified through the NBCE in Acupuncture. He concentrates on Auriculotherapy in his practice. With hundreds of acupoints located on the ear, Dr. Rech is able to treat many conditions though Acupuncture and/or Acupressure. As for the success of this form of alternative health care among patients -- the results speak for themselves. Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used alternative or complementary procedures in the world. Originating in China more than 2000 years ago, Acupuncture has now become widely known in the United States. From neck pain/headaches to weight loss/indigestions, Dr. Rech helps patients get back to their normal pain-free lifestyle with Acupuncture.
