MEET THE TEAM

Moses Alvarez L.Ac., RN

Clinic Director

As a NCCAOM-certified professional, I can help you transform your vitality and your life for the better. I can help you look and feel your best. And I can help you enjoy yourself along the way.

My career began when my father taught me how to lift weights at an early age. He was a proponent of Charles Atlas Calisthenics Methods, which later sparked my passion for fitness and bodybuilding. I dreamed of owning my own Gold’s or World Gym and managed several spas and fitness centers before applying for medical school. In my search, I found interest in the mystique of the holistic arts due to my background in martial arts. It’s when I discovered acupuncture while reading a book on a shelf titled “Careers in Alternative Medicine.” After enrolling in an acupuncture college in lower Manhattan, became part of the fifth graduating class under 88th Generation Daoist Priest Jeffery C. Yuen, CH.

As my career continued, I noticed a trend in pain conditions while treating local farmers, athletes and highway workers. My continued search for education leads me to Dry Needling, Soft Tissue Mobilization, and advancing my electro-acupuncture training under Dr. Anthony Lombardi, DC, of Ontario, Canada. Today, my specialty focuses on EXSTORE, a proven method to assessing and restoring muscle dysfunction. I feel truly honored to serve and change people’s lives and look forward to doing the same for you!
