About Our Acupuncture Practice


My own involvement with acupuncture came about as a result of addressing side effects from surgery. Debilitating night sweats kept me from sleep for months until a talented acupuncturist stopped my symptoms with a single treatment!  My curiosity was peaked which led to another graduate degree, this time in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. With those amazing results, I knew I had to learn this great art and share it with as many people as possible.

Helping people move beyond the pain and suffering is my passion and my reason for living. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to assist people over my many years as an acupuncturist.

I graduated from the Eastern School of Acupuncture in 2005.  I am licensed to practice acupuncture in both Connecticut and Massachusetts. With my wife, Michele, I have operated our clinic since January 2006
