Learn about Paul Ryan

Care Philosophy

At East-West Integrated Wellness, we offer safe, effective and holistic treatments based on Chinese understanding of health and illness. Chinese medicine says that health – both physical and mental – is governed by the flow of qi through a number of channels and organ systems. When these systems become unbalanced or thrown into disharmony, the body and mind manifest various forms of pain and diseases. Physical trauma (acute or chronic repetitive strain), unbalanced diet and lifestyle, emotional turmoil and excessive stress, can unbalance and disharmonize the body-mind. In many instances, restoration of normal flow of qi by application of acupuncture, manual therapy, or intake of herbal remedies combined with removal of the disrupting factors will result in a return to health and well-being. However, when the flow is severely damaged, or the disrupting factors cannot be removed, regular maintenance care can provide relief and prevent the progression of the disease.

I can't speak highly enough of Paul Ryan - his practice has literally changed my life. I began working with him a year ago while I was recovering from a massive intestinal surgery. His acupuncture drastically improved my ability to digest and process food. What I value so much about his work, though, is his holistic approach: we have since used acupuncture, meditation, and cranio-sacral therapy to support me as I went off of my SSRI and conceived my first child. Not enough room here to rave!

Paul Ryan is head and shoulders over any other acupuncturist I have seen. Every time I see him, he takes the time to talk to me and see what would be the best treatment for me on that day. He does not program a plan of treatment that he sticks to without consideration of the changes that have taken place since my last visit. Not only that, but the variety of approaches and techniques he is proficient at is unparalleled. I cannot recommend him more highly.
