Professional Narrative

Searching for relief from my own neck pain and insomnia, I discovered profound physical and mental level healing in acupuncture with the late Sifu Kenny Gong in New York City. Amazed at the results, I joined the next class at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, MD in May of 1994. Since then my passion has been helping others experience the same freedom from physical and emotional pain that I did, as well as reclaim their own health and wellbeing. Specializing in sports acupuncture and orthopedics, I am dedicated to helping individuals experience optimal performance in all aspects of life, both on and off the field.

I have devoted the better part of the last two decades learning to treat orthopedic issues from the most renowned experts. Since 1998 I have studied extensively with Jeffrey Yuen, Dr. Richard Tan (may he rest in peace), Lonny Jarrett, Whitfield Reeves, Anthony Lombardi, Dr. Robert Chu, and in March 2017 I completed a 238-hour comprehensive program in Sports Medicine Acupuncture. Later that year I earned my Doctorate in Acupuncture. Currently I am enjoying advanced studies in Chinese Herbal Medicine.

During my career of over 24 years I have served as Chairman of the Maryland State Acupuncture Board, Secretary of the Maryland Acupuncture Society, Clinic Director and Division Chair of several departments of MUIH and presented at various national and international conferences on the benefits of traditional medicine.

One of my greatest passions is teaching the beauty and effectiveness of this medicine at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) and in my own workshops and seminars. There is so much more this medicine has to offer than pain relief and physical healing.

Personal Narrative

I’m an unquenchable learner, in awe of the majestic elegance of Nature, it’s cycles, and the human body. For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated by their secrets and how Life and our body work.

My absolute favorite is spending time at the beach or on the ocean. And I can’t get enough of traveling with my better half, Khadijah. We both adore exploring new places, making new friends and savoring new and unusual cuisine.

Through daily meditation and spiritual practices learned from my beloved Guide, I love to explore the World behind the world, the World of Unity and Becoming, and sharing this with others.

I confess a great fascination with Sci-fi, especially Star Trek. Who wouldn’t want to boldly go where no one has gone before?
