Sean E. Chillemi, a life-long resident of Tarrytown, NY, is the owner and primary practitioner of Ren-Shen Healing. Sean is a graduate of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine with a Bachelor of Professional Studies in Asian Holistic Health and Massage, as well as a dual degree of Bachelor of Professional Studies and Master's of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine.

His studies in Oriental Medicine began after completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics at Pace University. This career change came after he was diagnosed with skin cancer at age 21. During this difficult time, Sean learned and appreciated the importance of alternative medicine in healing the mind, body, and soul. In return, he is dedicating his life to helping others restore their energy and health.
Sean is currently undertaking the challenge of obtaining a Ph.D in the Integration of Eastern and Western Medicine with a focus in Neurology from the Liaoning University of Traditional Chinese Medicine located in Shenyang, China. He is driven by an unrelenting desire for knowledge and skill to aid in the healing of others.
