What is Acupuncture?

The term acupuncture has come to mean much more than just the expert insertion of fine needles at specific locations on the body. A licensed acupuncturist may draw upon different cultural traditions, styles of practice and techniques, usage of needles, magnets, electricity, finger pressure, the application of herbs or essences, sounds or words to elicit a healing response. Therefore, we can say Acupuncture is a principle not a technique. The needle is the calling card of acupuncturists but by no means their only tool!

"Acupuncture stimulates the body's resources, boosting its natural tendency towards health."

Your Oriental Medicine Practioner: Daniel Nemer

Daniel Nemer, M. Ac., L. O.M., Dipl. O.M.has been working in the field of East Asian Medicine since 1996, with continual study, vast and varied experiences and an innate gift of compassion. Translating Health LLC, of which he is the founder, has become a flagship for his life work and mission. Incorporating acupressure massage, needle and non-needling therapy, energy work, and herbal preparations, Daniel’s emphasis in treatment is to release blocks or holding patterns from the body, restore balance, and promote “superior health,” the ideal state where a person may reach their full potential.

A lover of travel and adventure, in 2006, shortly after returning from study in China, Daniel left Philadelphia for five years to become one of a select few of practicing acupuncturist at sea––treating people on the largest “floating cities” and ports of nearly every continent. It was there he refined his techniques with an ever-changing international client base that demanded immediate results in only days, not months. During this time, he also gave regular lectures on Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Since returning to Philadelphia in 2011, Daniel’s holistic healing practice has flourished while also maintaining positions as a clinical supervisor, instructor and adjunct faculty for both the acupuncture and Chinese herb programs at the Won Institute of Graduate Studies, in Glenside, Pennsylvania. Daniel holds a Masters degree in Acupuncture from the Maryland University of Integrative Medicine, formerly the Traditional Acupuncture Institute, one of the oldest acupuncture schools in America and in addition holds certificates of advanced training in Facial Rejuvenation (the Acupuncture Face-Lift), Chinese Herbal medicine, Pain management techniques, Auriculotherapy and massage. A lifelong musician and composer, Daniel can also be heard singing and performing on the guitar.
