Dr. Trent Peng was born in Taipei, Taiwan, and attended McMaster
University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, with major in Psychology. He was
taking pre-med courses and planned to apply for medical school. During
college, Dr. Peng was exposed to Chiropractic, and was immediately attracted by
its drug-free, conservative, but effective approach to musculoskeletal
complaints. He decided to apply to Chiropractic School, and attended the
prestigious National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois.
Before graduation, he met his wife Cindy, who later moved to Georgetown, Texas
due to a job. After graduation, Dr. Peng followed his wife and settled in
Round Rock, Texas.

Wellness Center (PWC) in 2008, and took over ownership in 2012. Dr. Peng is the
present owner and clinic director for PWC.
Dr. Peng believes in an integrative approach in healthcare.

acupuncture, nutrition, and weight loss. The customized, patient-oriented

practice model for PWC to the present day.

USA, and has presented in these conference. He is awaiting the

for musculoskeletal problems, but also an information center for the
maintenance of the patients' health post-treatment. He looks forward to
serving patients in Pflugerville and surrounding areas for the years to come.
