Yuho Hayashi, Ph.D., L.Ac. (Owner)


Ancient Prescription was born out of Dr. Hayashi’s life-long pursuit of natural sciences, and of her ideology for medicine that is sincere, gentle, yet “amazingly” effective. In the spirit of “一期一会” (pronounced ichi go ichi e) meaning “each moment, only once in a lifetime”, Dr. Hayashi strives to help people find real and lasting relief from feeling and being sick; and to be a respectful and trustworthy advocate for the benefit of their long-term health.

Originally from Japan, Dr. Hayashi has lived and studied in Switzerland, France, and US. She completed her undergraduate degree in biochemistry at New York University, then her graduate studies in space immunology and physiology at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas and Ph.D. in cancer biology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. After completing three years of postdoctoral fellowship, she went on to study acupuncture and Chinese herbology at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California. She is also a commercial pilot with instrument rating.
