Following his recovery, Dan enrolled in an acupuncture program at Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine of the New York Chiropractic College where he graduated with a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture in 2019. While in school, Dan completed 3000-plus hours of clinical training during which he gained proficiency in modalities that are instrumental in Traditional Chinese Medicine such as Acupuncture, Zhen Gu Tui Na (Chinese orthopedic massage), gua sha, moxibustion, cupping, and qi gong.
He also furthered his understanding of TCM by studying at the Zhejiang Provincial Hospital of TCM in Hangzhou China where he completed 100 hours of clinical training in advanced acupuncture and tui na. There he observed how Eastern and Western medicine can be combined to obtain the highest level of recovery for patients. Dan continues to incorporate this in his practice.
Specialties include treatment of painful conditions both acute and chronic; mental health concerns such as stress or anxiety; digestive issues including IBS and Celiac disease; asthma, immune function disorders, and other autoimmune conditions.

Witnessing truth, facilitating healing, and being of service has embedded a set of values and principles in me that gives my life true meaning.
Adi holds a B.S. in Biology from Virginia Tech and a B.S. in Physical Therapy from the University of Pittsburgh. His P.T. work now constitutes one of several vehicles he uses in his quest to draw from, and integrate, a variety of approaches, theories, and techniques as needed to help others improve their lives.
My intention is to unlock the full human potential in each of my clients by bringing their physical wellness and metaphysical wellness into harmony.
After experiencing profound changes in all facets of her life, Jenn made the decision to get certified in yoga and help others realize the amazing healing powers of Eastern and alternative practices. She remains ever-curious and open-minded to new modalities of energy and body healing, most recently exploring mindfulness, reiki, reflexology, and other forms of energy/body work.
I find an enormous sense of gratification in helping others relax because I know what it is like to be very much in need of self care and to just sit still and be. I hope to help others find that while I'm here.
