Zhong Wellness Center

Ancient Healing for
Modern Life

Welcome to the Zhong Wellness Center - 
Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine & Health Optimization in Honolulu

We are dedicated to optimizing your health in a natural and holistic way. 


Dr. Zhen Hui Zhong, D.Ac., aka Dr. “James” Zhong, uses Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and draws upon his over 35 years of medical experience to help you live your best life. He is one of a few practitioners in Hawaii who graduated from a TCM medical school in China. The goal of his personalized treatments are to relieve pain, restore, heal and balance.



Acupuncture is a means to restore balance and health by tapping into our body's own energy.  It stimulates specific points along your body's meridians (energetic pathways) using fine needles to bring about an equilibrium.  This promotes the circulation of blood, fluids and the flow of your body’s natural energy (or qi), bringing out healing in the most natural way possible.

Herbs and Remedies

Chinese Herbs

Herbal Medicine is most often used in conjunction with acupuncture treatments. Chinese herbal medicine can be used to treat a number of symptoms at once since they are combined for each individual, based upon particular concerns and patterns in mind. 

 Given under the supervision of Dr. Zhong, Chinese herbal medicine has a great record of being safe  with few, if any, side-effects.  It is meant to correct an imbalance and then to be discontinued or adjusted.

Health Optimization

The Zhong Wellness Center seeks whole-body wellness and health optimization for our clients.   

Utilizing Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dr. Zhong draws from a complete medical system that for over 5,000 years has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness.  Physical, emotional and/or lifestyle factors can contribute to imbalance, resulting in illness and pain.  Health optimization looks at all aspects of one's life and then outlines a plan to restore the body's natural energy flow.


​"Dr. Zhong is amazing. He's knowledgeable and experienced. I immediately felt at ease.  I had chronic pain and he was able to make me feel better after each visit to the point that my problem resolved itself. Dr. Zhong is a healer."

What to Expect

If you're interested in a whole-body approach to wellness, we welcome you to make an appointment with Dr. Zhong.   If you haven't been to seen us before, keep in mind the first appointment is going to be different than what you're used to.


While acupuncture might be new to you, Dr. Zhong will answer your questions and take a good 30-minutes to talk with you first to make sure he understands your background, symptoms, and goals.  Only when you're comfortable will the actual acupuncture appointment begin.
