Care Philosophy

I am the founder and the medical director of the Olympus Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine. I've been in clinical practice for over 30 years. We treat both adults and children using natural therapies such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, medical massage, physiotherapies, nutrition, and homeopathy. The range of conditions we treat is extensive and includes most chronic and acute illnesses, e.g., musculo-skeletal injuries, pain syndromes, women's health issues, digestive disorders, allergies, asthma, headaches, insomnia, depression, anxiety, skin conditions, and stress.  

We do not only treat illnesses, we specialize in preventative and anti-aging programs. Many of our clients who initially come for treatment of specific conditions return for acupuncture/bodywork tune-up sessions and elect to continue with herbal/nutritional therapies. Our integrative philosophy provides a comprehensive and resourceful approach to address your specific healthcare needs.

in Brooklyn, ny |
I have been receiving acupuncture from Dr Trahan for several years, initially twice a week, and now once a week, and my symptoms have almost completely disappeared. He also specially mixes up herbs that have helped my skin and my general health. He also treats me with homeopathic remedies, and helps me with dietary adjustments according to my symptoms, my constitution, and seasonal changes. His gentle acupuncture treatments leave me revitalized after every session. He is warm & accommodating
in Jackson Heights, NY |
Dr. Trahan is an exceptional doctor. I have been seeing him for several months and in the time that he has treated me I have felt a substantial difference in the way that I feel! This is in part due to his tremendous knowledge in both acupuncture and herbal medicine, but also his generous personality. Dr. Trahan is super easy to talk with, I feel very comfortable discussing any concern that I may be having about my health and my body.
in New York, NY |
He has years of training and clinical experience in herbs, acupuncture and homeopathy, so he can come at medical problems from one, or a combination of, several different approaches. Very warm and caring, takes a lot of time with you.
in New York, NY |
During a very challenging period of my life (physically, mentally, emotionally) I started going to him for acupuncture, herbs, and homeopathy. We worked together for a few years and he truly changed my life, dramatically, for the better. I feel INCREDIBLY grateful and lucky to have found him. I have never been to a holistic practitioner in the NYC area with as much dedication and the range of knowledge that Dr. Trahan has (I have a hard time imagining that there are many others).
in Bronx, NY |
Dr. Trahan treated me with acupuncture and homeopathy for energy, balance, and digestion, all related to my polycystic kidney disease, as well as body points directly corresponding to the kidneys. Not only did I feel stronger after my sessions, I credit him with helping me manage my symptoms until I got my transplant. As a physically nervous person, I found his warm, low-key manner welcome and comforting. I wish more doctors in traditional medicine were more like him!
