As a child Nicholas battled chronic asthma and digestive problems. His Western doctors told him there were no known “cures” for these conditions, but through acupuncture, Nicholas’ life and health were transformed: both as a practitioner, as well as a patient.
Diseases and dysfunctions are often messages from our bodies that it’s time for something to change. Acupuncture has the power to treat these issues of the physical body, along with those of the mind and spirit. Often it simply requires an energetic nudge for the body to regain balance and find its natural way. Nicholas identifies the root of your issues and helps restore your body’s balance.
As a patient, Nicholas felt alienated by the separation of body and mind, and the total disregard of spirit within conventional medicine. So Nicholas began his deep study and practice as an acupuncturist to honor the spiritual aspect of the healing process as taught by the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine.
Nicholas uses acupuncture as preventative medicine to keep his and his clients’ bodies strong, mind centered, and to correct imbalances before they manifest as disease.
Nicholas has been called a “healer’s healer,” having worked within the alternative medical field for more than 10 years. He has a M.S. in Acupuncture from the Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences; a B.A. in Sociology and Philosophy from Brandeis University; and continues to study under renowned Chinese medical master and Taoist priest, Jeffrey Yuen.
Nicholas is licensed by the State of New York to practice acupuncture. He is also student and practitioner of Taoism and Buddhism, a Reiki Master, Chinese Medical scholar, teacher and writer, using his knowledge and experience to educate and inspire.
