    I met with Brent today, he made me feel comfortable and at ease right off the bat. I have a lot going on with my health and I experience a lot pain and different symptoms. For many years a lot of different Drs would brush off what I am experiencing, throw their arms up in defeat and give me more medications. Within 10 min of Brent working on me, I had relief and some idea of what could be the cause of a lot of my issues. For the first time in a long time I have hope! I am looking forward to working with Brent.

    Brent is in tune and in touch. He's exceeded my hopes in every session. He's personable, professional, and fun. Brent understands the language of the body in a way that makes it feel like he's psychic. He's rough and tough enough with me that I feel like I'm getting my money's worth, and gentle enough with my wife that she's no longer terrified of acupuncture. Magic!

About this pro

I provide comprehensive, organic, integrative treatments to help people live active, pain-free lives. I draw on a wide range of treatment options when deciding how to approach each patient. My integrative service incorporates Chinese, Japanese, and Western acupuncture techniques along with clinical massage and bodywork. Treatments may also include East Asian modalities like cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, and herbal medicine as well as nutrition recommendations and trigger point therapy. Every patient doesn't receive every type of treatment, but no matter what a client needs, I have the right tool to address that need. I like helping people feel better, and when they thank me for that help, it's very satisfying. I enjoy interacting with clients, learning about their health, and discovering what past experiences may have gotten them to the condition they're currently experiencing. I also love drawing on my experience to make suggestions that are customized to a client's needs. I've gained a wealth of knowledge from my teachers about what produces a healthy lifestyle, and I'm eager to pass that knowledge along to those who can benefit from it.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My pricing structure is $100 for an initial 90-minute visit, which includes consultation and treatment. Follow-up treatments, one hour in length, are $90. Packages are available, and treatments from any package are transferable to friends and family.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      The client fills out some basic paperwork, and then we meet for an initial consultation. This involves up to 30 minutes of conversation, so I can understand health history and current difficulties and determine what I can do to help. This is also a great opportunity for all the client's questions to be answered. The consultation is immediately followed by a one-hour treatment.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I hold a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, which included coursework in acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, and other East Asian modalities. I have also completed over 100 hours of training with the president of the National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists. I am licensed as an acupuncturist (LAc) and massage therapist (LMT) and certified as a myofascial trigger point therapist (CMTPT). I am also a Reiki Master practitioner. I thrive on continuing my education, and I'm always seeking opportunities to learn from master practitioners.
