With over 14 years of clinical and teaching experience, John offers a unique blend of Eastern and Western modalities by combining acupuncture, orthopedic massage, personal training and nutritional coaching to create a health and fitness plan customized to you and your goals. He has been an adjunct faculty member at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) since 2006, most notably as the lead instructor for the Tui Na Certificate Program (Chinese orthopedic massage) which covers treatment plans based on postural, movement, orthopedic and neurological assessments. He has also been an assistant instructor for Diagnosis, Acupuncture Sports Medicine, Acupuncture Theory and Techniques as well as a clinic supervisor in the Community Clinic at ACTCM. Ultimately, he loves it when people realize and take action on the fact that “you are your best medicine”.
He loves working with people who haven’t exercised regularly in over 3 months, are recovering from an injury, have run out of physical therapy but feel there’s more to do, or are afraid to exercise because of an old injury. Finding the right starting point for your health and fitness journey is crucial to safely achieve your goals.
Outside of work he is a dedicated family man, enjoys completing obstacle races with friends and family and is an avid surfer, musician and movie buff.
