Paul G flat

Paul received his Master’s Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego.  He has pursued additional studies of Chinese medical classics with Dr. J. Min Fan and Z’ev Rosenberg, including the Nei Jing, Shang Han Lun, and Pi Wei Lun, as well as Chinese herbal medicine and Chinese language. Paul has also studied under alchemist and Cherokee herbalist David Winston, RH, (AHG).

He has treated patients in a variety of settings including:

  • Rady Children’s Hospital in Oncology and Pain Management
  • UCSD’s RIMAC Sports Training Facility
  • Acusport Health Center

Paul treats men and women of all ages with a variety of complaints, and is one of only a few San Diego acupuncture clinician that regularly treats children, gently and effectively.  One of his own children was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age, and this direct and daily experience gives Paul a unique understanding of managing this disease as both a parent and a clinician.

As an avid athlete, coach, and lover of the natural world, Paul has endured a variety of injuries. This experience combined with his extensive study of sports medicine, provides the foundation for a thorough and well-rounded approach in his treatment of sports injuries and musculoskeletal disorders. In addition to working with patients on relieving pain and correcting the functional imbalances, he also has the education and experience to monitor nutrition and training regimens.

Complementing his San Diego acupuncture and herbalist practice, Paul has studied western herbalism and Ayurveda.  This broad knowledge of herbal medicine expands his clinical success with his own patients. Many of the top acupuncture practitioners and other health professionals often consult with him when they are faced with difficult cases.

Additionally, Paul is a Functional Medicine practitioner.
