Craig completed the Master in Acupuncture program at the New England School of Acupuncture & Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Worcester, MA. He also holds a B.A. in Psychology from Loyola University in Baltimore, MD.
Craig's practice is non-specific; he treats both acute and chronic conditions: from pain management, musculoskeletal, and digestive disorders to anxiety, depression, men's health, and stroke recovery/rehabilitation. Post-graduate studies have focused on Yamamoto Scalp Acupuncture, seminars in orthopedic acupuncture, Master Tung's acupuncture, stroke recovery/rehabilitation, Chinese dietetics and nutrition, and Qi Gong.
Craig brings intention and focus to his practice. The goal is to create a relaxing, nourishing experience, one that brings deeper healing on all levels of the body and an unfolding of one's authentic self. Through education, encouragement, and individualized treatments, Craig meets each patient on their life's journey, assists in bringing whole-body balance, and invites each patient into a deeper self-awareness and realization that everyone holds the key to their own health.
When not practicing acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, Craig finds joy in music, nature, food, and travel.
