Prior to his professional pursuit of acupuncture he studied psychology and traditional eastern art at Naropa University, where he was first introduced to Chinese medical theory and began his intensive study of Tai Chi Chuan under Professor Bataan Faigao in 2006. The study and practice of classical Chinese medicine has been the primary endeavor in John's life since that time.

"Acupuncture sessions with John are wonderful. I've had extremely powerful experiences in treatment with him. Issues I had struggled with for years were resolved after the first session. As a result I feel lighter, calmer, less anxious, more present and joyful. I'm so grateful to have met John." -A.C.
"John Patterson has been my acupuncturist for over 2 years. I first sought his services hoping to address a cluster of physical symptoms including sleeplessness, chronic fatigue, chronic pain and the emotional distress that typically accompanies such symptoms. In just a short amount of time, John’s treatments alleviated those symptoms in the short term, and he went further to address any underlying causes. Today, the pain remains gone, I sleep well each night and wake feeling rested and optimistic for each day. I’m not really sure how it all works, I just know it does. I find myself relieved and better able to take care of myself. I continue to seek periodic treatments for injuries, illness, stressful periods, or just a “tune-up” to refresh and refocus me. John is easy to talk to; his demeanor is gentle and compassionate and knowledgeable. It’s not often you can find someone with both skill and compassion. I feel fortunate to have found John and will continue to utilize his services for as long as he’s in business. Thank you, John!" -T.B.

"When I go to John I receive wonderful treatments that leave me relaxed and grounded. In the days following treatment I also notice lasting positive psychological shifts take place. I experience John as a real healer with a knack for giving present minded attention to me and my unique needs, and really hearing what I have to say about my body and health. I feel respected and cared for in his presence." -S.M.
"I've been getting acupuncture treatment with John for two years now and I have to say that it is one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself regarding healing and growth. He is attentive and precise, and for that I trust his methods, but he is also kindhearted and open-minded. I feel I can reveal the things that need the most attention and healing in myself without receiving judgment." -C.G.
