Hi. I'm Doug.

I'm a fully-trained and -licensed acupuncturist and Dao healing & wellness arts practitioner based in Bangkok, Thailand.

Body

Spirit

Acupuncture for all levels of being.

The core of my clinical practice is acupuncture. From physical conditions such as an aching back, long-term digestive dysfunction, or infertility, to psycho-emotional issues such as depression, anxiety, or incapacitating self-doubt, to spiritual concerns such as the loss of life-direction, the search for meaning, or a desire to cultivate personal authenticity, there’s a really good chance I can help.

A big-picture approach to treatment.

Symptoms are a sign of some sort of underlying imbalance. The questions we need to ask when evaluating any given situation include, “What’s driving these symptoms? Is the imbalance purely physical? Or is there an emotional or lifestyle component that needs to be addressed?” If the problem is purely physical, acupuncture may be all that’s needed. But if other factors are contributing, then lifestyle or other self-care guidance may be necessary. Teaching clients how to contribute to their own healing process is the most rewarding part of my work.

The most rewarding part of my job is teaching people how to use the Daoist healing and wellness arts to facilitate and maximize their own healing process.

Dedicated to helping you heal.

American-trained and -licensed, and in practice since 2005, I have experience successfully treating a broad spectrum of conditions. And though my core training is in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), I consider myself a practitioner of Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM). Unlike TCM’s highly-standardized model of treatment, CCM embraces the classical spirit of adapting treatment to an individual’s immediate physical, psycho-emotional, and spiritual state, as well as factoring in other considerations such as the timing and location of treatment.
