EASTERN AND WESTERN MEDICINE
In addition to Michael’s training in Eastern Medicine, he has worked with several widely respected Western Medical Doctors, Naturopaths, Addiction Specialists, Oncologists, Physical Therapists and Nutritionists. These influences have proven invaluable for strategizing treatment plans related to complex conditions. The synergy between Eastern and Western approaches to healing offers the benefits of holistic medical solutions while utilizing tangible, modern advances in human technological understanding. Michael’s approach to healing taps into the vast fields of knowledge inherent in both traditions.
Chinese Medicine has long been a part of Michael’s path in life. He was first exposed to Acupuncture at the age of 8 when an Acupuncturist was selected as Michael’s primary care physician where he was treated for allergies, athletic injuries and the common cold. The acupuncturist was also utilized as a preventative-focused health provider, performing routine treatments to maintain a healthful energy balance within the body.
When not treating patients or furthering his education by studying the latest medical advancements, Michael enjoys traveling the globe to experience the essence of other cultures and setting out for the great surf breaks, diving spots and snowboarding slopes our planet has to offer.
