OIM Staff Spotlight: Greg Cicciu

By | Acupuncture | No Comments

Meet Greg Cicciu, our resident acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine specialist. He has studied and practiced traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture for 20 years. Greg assesses his patients by reading the patient’s pulse. Because your blood touches every single part of your body, from a cellular level to circulating through all of your organs, it tells a story about your body’s past, present and future. As a trained acupuncturist Greg says he reads his patient’s pulse the way a radiologist reads an MRI. Different types of pulses clue him into what is going on with his patient’s physical and emotional…

Developing my mind beyond anything I ever thought possible will be my focus this year and will continue long after this year. I have spent time developing my mind in the past, but not to the level I’m planning on this year. I welcome those who wish to join me with all or some of the things I’m doing below. Being an osteopathic…

5 Doctors Told Said There Was No Hope For Her Unborn Child

By | Osteopathy | One Comment

It’s not every day I post a review a patient left for another osteopathic physician. This story, however, is beyond worthy of sharing because many of us need to be reminded about the potential power of what osteopathy can accomplish. Stephen Myles Davidson, DO is my mentor and colleague. His osteopathic treatments are at another level than anyone else I have met. I heard about it many months ago while talking to him, but now the patient has also shared her story. So often, I read about so many osteopaths and other organizations from around the world who spend their…

Unfortunately over a year later, her pain had not gone away still. She had tried going to a chiropractor and physical therapist prior to seeing me. She said that although the chiropractic treatment had helped,…
