This content was provided by Robert Clickner "Raised in Northern Virginia, Bob Clickner originally planned to work in early childhood and elementary education, but somewhere in college (Virginia Tech) realized it was not for him. He moved out to New Mexico where there is a strong interest in acupuncture, and ended up enrolling in acupuncture school while working in a food co-op to pay the bills. After finishing his Masters Degree in 1999 Bob worked as an apprentice under Vince Black, Lic.Ac., a martial arts instructor and practitioner of Chinese Medicine located in Tucson, AZ. During this apprenticeship Bob learned Western bodywork techniques which work wonderfully in concert with Chinese medicine. He continued to add bodywork skills to his tool set at Acupuncture Associates of Annapolis, the internal medicine practice of Margaret M. Mullins, MD, where he was hired in 2000. A love for Virginia brought Robert and his family to Charlottesville, where he established his own acupuncture practice in 2002. Besides treating patients in clinic, Bob periodically lectures and gives demonstrations to medical students at the University of Virginia. Bob wrote an entire curriculum for herbal medicine students in addition to lecturing and serving as clinic supervisor for several years at Sacred Plant Traditions in Charlottesville. He was also a lecturer in anatomy and physiology at the Virginia School of Massage. He enjoys speaking to groups about new ways to think about your own health care, having given talks at Whole Foods, Integral Yoga, ACAC, and UVA's Cancer Support Group. Bob is married with two children, two dogs and a cat."
This content was provided by Robert Clickner "I work together with the patient to find the root cause(s) of their condition; people often have important information and instincts that will help me solve their health problem. Often we will find an old injury or illness that is still affecting their health, even in a different area of the body. Once that old problem is treated, the body can finish the work and rebuild itself. I may use more than acupuncture -- bodywork, herbs and diet may play a part in restoring health."
