Helping people help themselves. Heal.
BRET ROGERS, LAC., MACOM, AOBTA-CP
Bret came to Traditional Chinese Medicine through his practice of Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong. He began studying martial arts in 2007 and instantly felt drawn to the forms the body made in Tai Chi. The deliberate movements, the focus on qi, resonated with him and he quickly delved into the practice. As his interest matured, the academic within him began to yearn for the a deeper understanding of what was happening within these practices. In 2011 he decided to attend the AOMA School of Integrative Medicine earning a Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM). In 2017 he started the Doctoral Program at AOMA and is focusing on acupuncture outreach for treating addiction in the Austin area.
He is currently on Faculty at AOMA as the Clinical Resident Supervisor, primary Teaching Assistant for the Biomedical Department and Acupuncture Techniques Department, and instructor for the Biomedical Terminology course.
Bret practices acupuncture because of its integrative and holistic approach, particularly with respect to Women's Health. Having seen so many women and female bodied friends helped tremendously by this medicine after being dismissed by many other practitioners, he made it a primary focus of his studies. He also has focuses in pain management, sports injury, addiction, and mental health. Schedule online with him, or call to directly at (512) 450-4228 to make an appointment.
