Michael Max has been a student of acupuncture and Chinese medicine for going on 20 years now. It began as a curiosity as to how a few needles could not only resolve a stubborn health condition he’d had since childhood, but also improve digestion, quality of sleep and mood.
This lead him first to acupuncture school, and then Asia where he worked his way through the gate of Chinese language so he could study with doctors there. Today his work is informed by his clinical practice. The material he reads in Chinese from doctors of centuries past, and the teachers of our modern times, synthesize observations of the past with the challenges of the present.
