Jonathan's Story

Jonathan saw the impact chronic disease can have on people while working as a Physical Therapist in a group of rehabilitation centers. He felt he could help people live independent and fulfilling lives despite whatever physical hurdles may have been dumped on their doorstep.


Physical Therapy does give you the ability to help people keep their independence, however it also has limitations. Those limitations are what lead Jonathan down the path of learning how to help people with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.


When a patient Jonathan had been working with stopped seeing results from his Physical Therapy treatments, his medications weren’t helping, and the patient felt other medical specialties had written him off, he began to feel hopeless. Running out of options the patient began to explore other possible treatment solutions.

The patient began asking if other patients had any experience with Acupuncture. At the time, Acupuncture was more of a fridge medicine, and no one had any experience with Acupuncture, positive or negative. He ultimately sought the help of a well-known Doctor of Acupuncture in the Buffalo region.


After a few weeks, the patient returned to the therapy clinic for a follow-up appointment, and the results he saw from Acupuncture were unbelievable. The Acupuncturist had cut his pain in half, his balance had significantly improved, he could sleep soundly through the night, and he was beginning to golf again!


Jonathan’s interest in Acupuncture began, he had seen firsthand what Acupuncture could do for people. Jonathan had exhausted all his treatment options from a physical therapy scope, literally sweating, trying to help this patient. Then the patient sees a guy a few times a week who sticks a few needles in him and then goes and sits on his but! Naturally, Jonathan had to learn more.


Once Jonathan experienced acupuncture and the powerful results it can yield he was confident that this was what he wanted to bring to the table. He began studying Chinese medicine at the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine. He even had the opportunity to study abroad in China to master this ancient art & science.


Jonathan opened his acupuncture clinic in Buffalo and now resides in Williamsville with his wife and two children. He has served the Western New York Community for 20 years at his private Acupuncture clinic in Cheektowaga, just a few minutes from the Main Street exit of the 290.


BAM's mission is to provide those who are condemned to 'deal with it' find effective non-pharmaceutical solutions to their health condition with Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine.
