A National Board Certified (NCCAOM) Licensed Acupuncturist in practice for more than 20 years, I received a Masters of Acupuncture Degree from The Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, Maryland (now Maryland University for Integrative Health), where I was a member of the faculty for 12 years. My training included over 2,000 hours of study in the classroom, and over 1,000 hours of clinical practice under supervision.
Currently, I am serving as Chairman of the Maryland State Board of Acupuncture and am in my second 4-year term, appointed by the Governor in 2009 and again in 2013. The main goal of the Board is to protect the Maryland public through the licensure and regulation of acupuncturists.
In my more than 30 years as an acupuncture patient, I have found that it helps to keep me on track emotionally, physically and spiritually. I rarely am sick, not even with the common cold. In the few instances when I have required medical intervention or have not been up to par, I have recovered more quickly and fully than before I was in treatment.
My clients have taken me on many and various journeys over the years and I have observed transformations nothing short of miraculous. It has been an honor and privilege to be part of their experience.
