James graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR with a Master’s of Science in Oriental Medicine. When James first received acupuncture, he was fascinated by the treatments. He was very curious, asking the acupuncturist all kinds of questions about the treatment. Very quickly, Chinese Medicine became a hobby, and eventually, James decided to make his hobby into a career.
James main strengths are that he is passionate about what he does and that he is always curious to learn more. James’ practice focuses on pain, sciatica, GI issues, mental health, acute conditions, post-COVID, allergies and auto-immune diseases. One of James goals is to be a part of Chinese Medicine’s growing popularity in the west, and help people seek out eastern medicine for all kinds of conditions.
In his free time, James enjoys being outdoors. He enjoys riding his bike, going for a hike, and spending time near water.
