"I always knew that I would become a health care practitioner but I was unsure of which field was appropriate for me. After discussing the matter with my family chiropractor, when the field of acupuncture was mentioned, I knew intuitively at that time that acupuncture was the right one for me. I immediately pursued my degree and worked without breaks for almost four years to complete the entire process, including medical board tests and licensing requirements."
"I began studying philosophy and world religions in my twenties and I also became fascinated with the world of health and medicine. After being put on the pharmaceutical drug 'wheel' myself after a skiing accident I took it upon myself to use only diet and exercise to cure my pain and was successful after six months of determined hard work, an experience I will never forget."
After having moved from New York after Hurricane Sandy in 2012 Thomas and his wife and two sons now live in Austin, TX, which is where they now call home.
