Acupuncturist Trina Lion has provided pain relief for children and adults since 2005. She has a decade of clinical experience in Shanghai, China and has lectured on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at Johns Hopkins University, Yale University, and University of Maryland Medical Center. Trina is the Eastern Meditation and Movement Specialist at the Retreat at Sheppard Pratt.
TCM is a form of mind-body medicine which includes dietary theory, movement, and bodywork. Do you have headaches and stress? Back pain and exhaustion? Cosmetic concerns and indigestion? Whatever your combination, Trina teaches as she treats so you can understand your symptoms and make choices that support your health and well-being.
"I never felt better than I did when I was being treated by Trina. I felt like my body was working together instead of against itself. What I enjoyed most about the treatment is the way she explains everything that’s going on in your body; she doesn’t just treat the symptom. I really felt like I was in sync on a lot of levels."

After graduating from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in NYC, Trina moved to Shanghai, China to experience local, urban TCM. She interned at ShuGuang Hospital and worked as an acupuncture intern at Shanghai Humanity Hospital, including stints as a TCM specialist in a foreign clinic and as TCM instructor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. During her 11 years in Shanghai, Trina also lectured on TCM in locales including NYU in Shanghai, NFL China and L'Oréal China. She was the cover story on Shanghai Family magazine and a TCM specialist on the Shanghai TV show "Culture Matters."
Trina relocated to her native Baltimore in fall 2015, where she has been providing TCM treatments to children and adults in her signature caring style. Trina draws health comics for the Shanghai University of TCM journal Chinese Medical Culture and writes on wellness for JMORE. When you wonder "can acupuncture help?" by all means, ask Trina!
