MD, MPH, Physician Acupuncturist
Brian completed Harvard University’s year-long International Structural Acupuncture Course for Physicians in 2017. this foundational program taught a Japanese palpation-based style of acupuncture, brought to the US from Japan by Kiiko Matsumoto. Brian has continued his training by participating in a wide variety of courses that reflect the breath and depth of Traditional Chinese Medicine. These additional courses have included advanced palpation skills, ear acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, Tan Blance method, Five Element theory and several Classical Chinese Medicine seminars with Jeffrey Yuen.
He recently completed a two-year course on Shen-Hammer pulse diagnosis and Five Element Chinese Medicine with Lonny Jarrett. Brian is a certified NADA and Battlefield acupuncture practitioner.
Brian has successfully used acupuncture to treat a diverse range of conditions including musculoskeletal pain (back, neck, knee, shoulder), phantom limb pain, migraine headaches, constipation, anxiety, insomnia and PTSD. Prior to coming to Nashville, he worked at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. He successfully treated hundreds of service members, who had recently returned with injuries for the ongoing conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Brian initially trained as a western medicine physician. He understands the great physical benefits the can come from western medical treatments. However, he often found that his patients had unmet psychological or emotional concerns in addition to their physical conditions. He has discovered that one of the great strengths of Chinese Medicine is its ability to address a person’s needs on multiple levels - physical, emotion, psychological and even spiritual. Brian is excited to incorporate these elements within his practice at Seven Directions Acupuncture.
