Chad is an expert in Acupuncture, Oriental Medicine, Tui Na Massage, Qi Gong, Tai Chi Chuan and Martial Arts, who brings an enormous wealth of knowledge and experience to each of his treatments or classes.
He discovered the Martial Arts at an early age and began formal classes at the age of 12 while growing up in rural Pennsylvania. His love for eastern teachings quickly developed into a much deeper passion encompassing meditation, philosophy, healing as well as martial arts. As a teenager, he learned Tui Na, Chinese Massage & Manipulation, and similar techniques from his martial arts instructors to complement his self-defense skills. He earned his Undergraduate degree at Temple University in Exercise Physiology. While in Philadelphia, Chad managed his instructor's martial arts center (Master Tom Updegrove, www.martialposture.com). Chad attended many various martial arts and healing seminars but specifically toured and trained with Grandmaster Remy Presas (Modern Arnis/ Hilot) and Ama Guro Billy Bryant (Kuntao Silat Cadena de Mano/ Kidlat Escrima/ Sandata). He used the move to Santa Fe for Graduate School to open his own martial arts school and expand his desire for teaching. Through traveling and research he was able to experience a wide range of fighting styles (5 black belts) and healing techniques.
He relocated to Miami in 1995 and has been a successful Acupuncture Physician and teacher at Shin Wellness (www.shinwellness.com). Since moving, he has been a professor at Florida College of Natural Health, Miami Dade College and the Acupuncture and Massage College as well as local, national and international seminars and retreats. Chad is also a freelance writer being published in Black Belt magazine, Inside Kung-Fu, Fitness 2000, etc.
