Covid Changes

Discounted Herbal Therapy

I am seeing patients on Zoom for herbal consultations and basic medical advice.   Right now I am able to offer $40 discounts for all follow-up appointments for herbal consultations.  The initial appointment is still $90.  If you are used to getting acupuncture please consider herbal therapy; I am able to address many systemic problems, such as allergies, fatigue, pain, digestive irregularities, fertitility and Gyn, weight gain and metabolism issues, skin problems, and immune problems.

I'm Open for Business

I have opened the office for acupuncture treatment on a somewhat limited basis.

If you would like a treatment please see the Covid treatment page linked below.  If you fill out all the forms we can schedule an appointment very smoothly.

In addition to seeing patients at his private practice in Watertown, in 2004 Jeff started the acupuncture practice at the Wellness Center at Harvard University Health Services a practice only open to the Harvard community. 

Jeff received his first exposure to Chinese Medicine through his grandmother, whose knowledge of folk medicine made a deep impression on him.  He is a 1998 graduate of Wesleyan University with a B.A. in East Asian Studies.  Jeff started studying Taichi with Gin Soon Chu, the 2nd disciple of Yang Shou Zhong in 1999.  He is indebted to Gin Soon Chu's sons Vincent and Gordon, who continue to teach. 

Before studying acupuncture, Jeff worked overseas at Nanjing University, and for the Japanese Ministry of Education.
