Are You Looking For A Way To Optimize Your Fitness & Health, Treat Chronic or Acute Health Problems In A Holistic, Non-Invasive Manner?

Whether you are looking for a holistic approach to entirely address your health concerns or a way to complement a more conventional approach, Traditional Chinese Medicine (“TCM”) is a time-proven method of addressing your concerns with few or no negative side-effects. This ancient and ever-evolving system of medicine is a subtle but powerful method that aims at harmonizing the body and mind rather than resorting to strong medicinal substances that carry numerous and severe risks.

Everett Churchill, L.Ac., discovered his initial interest in both bodywork and TCM during his martial arts training when a fellow instructor showed him the basics of Koho Shiatsu in 1990. Another martial arts contact introduced him to Qigong the same year, which he still practices and teaches today. Two years later he enrolled at the Touch of Life School of Massage where he studied Swedish & Sports massage immediately prior to his enrollment at the Minnesota School of Acupuncture & Herbal Studies (currently the Minnesota Collegeof Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine). After completing both the acupuncture and herbal medicine curricula he became certified by the NCCAOM (National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine) and licensed in 2001 by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice to practice acupuncture & herbal medicine in the state.
