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 that 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 decided to seek the help of 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 was seeing from acupuncture were unbelievable. The pain he was experiencing had been cut in half, his balance had significantly improved, he was able to sleep soundly through the night, and he was beginning to golf again!


This is when Jonathan’s interest in Acupuncture began, he had seen first-hand 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 goes to see a guy a few times a week who literally sticks a few needles in him and then goes and sits on his but! Naturally Jonathan had to learn more.


After receiving a few treatments from the Doctor of Acupuncture his patient had seen for a sleeping problem he was having, Jonathan was convinced, this is what he wanted to bring to the table. He began studying Chinese medicine at the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine and 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 been serving 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.
