Nate began his study of Chinese medicine as part of my studies of Northern Shao Lin Kung Fu, Yang family Tai Chi Chuan, and Qi Gong. he began studying these arts, and Tui Na from Sifu Brian Moran in 1997. Since then he have continued his study of Chinese martial arts as well as medicine in several ways; he is still studying with Sifu Moran to continually improve his Tai Chi and Qi Gong knowledge. Nate traveled to Oregon to study Tui Na, Qi Gong, and Tai Chi with Sifu Moran’s teacher Tai Sifu Dale Freeman. Nate graduated from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR. in 2009. The curriculum at OCOM included Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and Tui Na.

After graduating with his Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree Nate moved back to his childhood home, the Appalachian mountains of NC. He has been operating a practice in Waynesville, NC since 2009 as well as teaching Tai Chi and Qi Gong.

As an acupuncturist who always wishes to learn more, and as a licensed practitioner who needs CEUs to recertify, Nate has taken many continuing education courses; some that were really great and some that were really terrible. The vast majority of the CEUs he has taken were extremely expensive as well. Nate's goal is to offer quality, affordable continuing education courses for both acupuncturists and massage therapists.
