I am Vincente Mascarenas, a Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner (Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine).
Every individual is unique and complicated, so too is their health, I believe in looking at the body as a whole; mind, body, spirit and environment. So as to encourage a natural healing process, that we may treat the root of problems and not only suppress the symptoms.
I have lived in USA, Mongolia, Japan and Canada where I studied various forms of holistic and traditional medicine acquiring broad knowledge and experience in Traditional Oriental Medicine, nutrition, fitness, qi-gong, western herbalism, massage, and life-balance therapy. I am a compassionate practitioner who integrates all the tools at my disposal including:
- Gua sha
- Tiuna massage
- Herbal medicine
- Nutritional counseling
I believe there are many useful forms of medicine, and no style can cure everything but if we work together in the health profession, we can help many people.
I enjoy hiking, martial arts, healthy cooking, listening to music, and writing books.
I also teach children martial arts and volunteer for the environment.
As a practitioner I am able to address a variety of health concerns:
- Chronic and Acute Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Cold and Flu
- Digestive Issues
- Stress Management
- Menstruation Pain & Regulation
- General Health and Vitality Maintenance
- And much more….
