Miriam Lee has been practicing acupuncture for over 40 years. She came to the U.S. from Singapore where she lived for 17 years after leaving mainland China in 1949. In China she was a nurse and midwife before becoming, an acupuncturist, and lived through the Japanese occupation and World War II. When she arrived in California acupuncture was illegal, so Miriarn worked on a factory assembly line and gave treatments quietly out of her home, later sharing space with an open-minded MD. In April, 1974, Miriam was arrested for practicing medicine without a license. With the overwhelming support of her patients she was acquitted and made part of an acupuncture research project at San Francisco University, where she practiced until 1976 when acupuncture was legalized in California. Miriam Lee has been an important voice in the promotion of acupuncture legislation in California, has taught hundreds of Western students, and treated thousands of patients. Today Miriam has her own clinic in Palo Alto, California.
