"I have asked Peter to help me twice with sports related injuries. In both situations, I was very concerned with pain and a slow recovery. The areas around the injuries were severely swollen and, until the swelling resolved itself, I was out of action. Peter was able to help me reduce the swelling much faster than if I had just let the healing process follow its natural course. After a number of visits to Peter, the swelling abated, and I was able to return to my regular activities. I highly recommend Peter’s services to anyone who has an athletic or other type of injury that results in pain or other problems related to excessive swelling."
"I came to Peter for assistance with chronic neck pain and migraines. These issues had been bothering me for over 7 years, and I would have a migraine every two weeks on average. Today, I rarely have migraines, and my neck pain is minimal. I found that, over time, our treatments became more wholistic, focusing on internal and external sources of stress. By bringing the treatment to a deeper level, we were able to relieve the more superficial symptoms by addressing the underlying cause. I found that the treatments resulted in significantly less frequent migraines and reduced neck pain as well as an improved sense of well-being."

About me

My Story: I unexpectedly began my exploration of Chinese medicine as a patient, in 1996. After suffering for 20 months with a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome, acupuncture gave me my life back and helped me return to living my dreams. In 2007, I established Braasch Acupuncture to realize a new dream- working with people who find themselves suffering and helping them to overcome seemingly intractable health challenges.

If you are suffering and feel stuck, it would be my honor to serve as your partner. I would love to help you reclaim your dreams by living a more vigorous and fulfilling life.

What I Do: I practice Chinese medicine (acupuncture, herbs and Qi Gong- therapeutic exercise). I find great inspiration in helping people to transform their suffering into growth, healing and health. When I am not working with clients, I enjoy cooking, percussion, kayaking and caring for my three young sons.

Before studying Chinese medicine, I worked for a variety of environmental non-profits, a Congressional campaign, a management consulting company and the United Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.

My Credentials: I hold a Master of Acupuncture degree and Certificate in Chinese Herbal Medicine from the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture. I have also received a Certificate in Medical Qi Gong. I am Nationally Board Certified by the National Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and licensed by the Pennsylvania Medical Board as a Practitioner of Oriental Medicine. I have served as a board member for Pennsylvania’s Association for Professional Acupuncture (APA). I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Yale University, where I received honors in History and Environmental Studies.

Lifelong Learning: For me, practicing Chinese medicine is a lifelong journey in learning and spiritual growth. Since graduating acupuncture school, I have pursued a variety of ongoing studies and practices. One of my strongest influences has been the mentorship of Thea Elijah and her teaching of Whole Heart Connection. Since 2006, I have studied the spiritual healing practices of the Shaduliah Sufi. I also continue to study classical Chinese medicine from a number of different sources. On a daily basis, I strive to support these studies by integrating my traditional Jewish observance, qi gong exercise, Sufi remembrance, yoga and swimming into a dynamic blend of practice to support my body and spirit.
