I have spent 15 years studying with Edward Obaidey, a world-renowned acupuncturist in Tokyo.
My interest in acupuncture and Chinese medicine originated over three decades ago, when I sought a healthier method to treat my allergies and asthma, after my local pharmacist told me the drugs I was taking were harmful. I was thankful and incredulous that these fine needles and exotic herbs could rectify my health concerns so effectively, enabling me to give up my allergy shots and medications.
As I continue on the path to wellness, Tai Chi, Qi Gong and meditation have been my allies. After 20 years of practice, I continue to deepen my understanding and my treatments continue to reach higher levels of refinement, month after month and year after year.
“There is acupuncture… And then there is Chris La Rosa…
The man is like a chemist with a deep knowledge of healing running through his veins and intuition guiding his practice of Japanese style acupuncture.” – Jay Christian
