Motor Point Acupuncture for Pain, Mobility and Improved Sports Performance
Richard became interested in treating pain after his experience with sciatica. He was so surprised at how little our medical system could offer for pain management or even an explanation for his pain. After finding relief from acupuncture Richard became interested in learning everything he could about how it works and what the underlying theories of Chinese Medicine were. His acupuncturist suggested that he may want to consider formal study to become an acupuncturist.
Richard did make the leap and got his Master's degree in Acupuncture with a focus on Orthopedic & Sports Medicine from Pacific College in New York City. But that only scratched the surface for what Richard wanted to learn. He continued to study Western Medical Acupuncture from professors who taught at McMaster University's Neurofunctional Acupuncture program and he also added Master Tung Acupuncture and Dr. Tan's Balance Method to his studies as these forms of meridian style acupuncture can be very powerful for treating pain.
Richard now has a private practice in Manhattan where he treats professional and amateur athletes and people with chronic pain including migraine headaches.
