Initially, Shu Kyi Ide studied with and assisted Dr. Su six days a week for several years. Later, after she entered Community College of Philadelphia and then attended New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, she devoted one or two days a week, except when preparing for exams, to study with Dr. Su.
Shu Kyi Ide completed her Master of Science degree for acupuncture in December, 2011. She is licensed to practice acupuncture in Pennsylvania.
During her time with Dr. Su, Shu Kyi Ide observed Dr. Su use a variety of acupuncture techniques to successfully treat many different conditions. In addition to the acupuncture treatment techniques that Shu Kyi Ide learned at New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, she also relies on her study with Dr. Su when treating her own patients.
