Paul Ryan's bio

This content was provided by Paul Ryan "Paul Francis Ryan is a licensed acupuncturist who brings 18 years of studying and clinical practice in China to his private practice and educational courses. He is the first Westerner to graduate with a master's degree from the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine and the only Westerner ever hired by the Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine as an acupuncturist clinician. He believes in the integration of mind and body and the integration of Eastern and Western treatment modalities. He is committed to serving patients through clinical practice that draws on all the major Chinese therapeutic techniques, as well as Western manual therapies like cranial sacral and myofascial treatment. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Paul Ryan "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.

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...more
