He understands the body to be a veritable healing machine, designed to heal itself provided the right environment, and closely linked to our mental, emotional and spiritual health. Patrick’s course of study in acupuncture included the adjunct therapies of tui na massage, cupping, moxibustion and gua sha. He is certified in medical Qigong, a certified Reiki master, and well-versed in rehabilitative exercise. Patrick has helped patients with a wide variety of conditions, including musculoskeletal injuries and pain, neurological conditions, sleep disorders, digestive issues, stress/anxiety, migraines, chronic illness and more.
Patrick is also a certified instructor for Tai Chi, Qigong, Animal Flow and Systema, the Russian system of healing movement and martial arts. He enjoys teaching in an environment that encourages interaction, exploration and individual expression.
Patrick’s medical and movement practices have been shaped by years of international study with teachers of diverse healing arts, martial arts and intuitive skills. He is passionate about sharing this complementary blend of modalities in helping clients toward healing, fitness and overall wellbeing. In conjunction with Eastern medical diagnosis, Patrick also uses intuitive methods to help guide patient evaluation and develop a treatment approach that considers “the whole patient.”
