At River Street Wellness, we feel that good health care is a cooperative experience with the individual at the center of a caring team
Josh has been practicing acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in Montpelier, Vermont since 2003. In that time, he has come to love our central Vermont community through the relations he has gained from his patient care. Josh has a genuinely enthusiastic interest in his patients, always seeking the root of the presenting illness or dysfunction. He is told that he is a compassionate listener and effective practitioner.
While pursuing his pre-med degree from Emory University, Josh took a semester break from his studies and traveled extensively throughout the world. In this time, he explored what medical care was like in other countries and before our Western medical culture evolved to what it is today. The Chinese culture and perspective on medicine greatly attracted him to eventually live in Shenyang, China for a year and, after a three year Master's program, graduate from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. He is a diplomate in acupuncture from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and is licensed in the state of Vermont. Josh uses the various tools of Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture, herbs, and massage to support his patients toward improved health.
Josh strongly values an integrative model of care, working with other providers in a team effort for his patients' greatest benefit. He spends two half days a week at National Life Cancer Treatment Center in Berlin, Vermont helping patients more easily and effectively move through their cancer treatment. He is the founder of River Street Wellness, a collaborative of practitioners under one roof at 301 River Street in Montpelier working together to care for the central Vermont community. Josh lives in East Montpelier with his wife, Michelle, and children, Ruby, Jaden, and Hazel.
