More from our Acupuncturist, Chuck Sullivan
My passion in acupuncture is to bring effective help to people who want to use alternative therapies for their health care needs. I help my patients from all walks of life restore balance in their bodies to recover from many types of issues in a safe and reliable way.
While in the United States Air Force I developed a painful debilitating skin condition that was treated with anti-histamines. The medication, although effective for other conditions, was not effective for mine. A local friend recommended an acupuncturist who helped me figure out my condition and encouraged me to study acupuncture.
The experience of being ill and treated with a cookie cutter approach led me to believe that each patient requires an individualized approach. The theoretical framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine allows the practitioner to customize a treatment plan based on the individuals unique presentation. I have learned a variety of tools over the years. These tools include meridian style acupuncture, the original “dry needling” style of acupuncture, TCM acupuncture, herbal therapy, cupping therapy, gua sha, acupressure, Zen Shiatsu (2 years of study), tuina, nutrition and qigong.
Since 2005 I have been using acupuncture to help people in Memphis with a variety of medical concerns. My practice involves mainly treating chronic pain, acute pain, and infertility. In addition, I have treated everything from migraines to digestive issues.
Finding a solid, reliable, and knowledgeable complimentary medicine practitioner can be a daunting task. You should know that I thrive on helping people get well as soon as possible in a safe, ethical, and professional environment.
Chuck Sullivan, MAOM, LAc
Chuck Sullivan, L.Ac. has been in private practice since 2003. His practice focuses on treating neck and back pain as well as headaches. He went to acupuncture school after completing a tour with the United State Air Force. While in the USAF Chuck Sullivan started receiving acupuncture treatment for a condition that he could not get any relief from on the base. After receiving a session in 1998 his wife encouraged him to go to back to school to learn Traditional Chinese Medicine. His first school was the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. Due to family issues he moved back to California to finish at the Santa Barbara College of Oriental Medicine. Upon graduation in 2003 he moved to Springfield, Missouri to start his practice. In the summer of 2005 he moved to Memphis and took a position at Acupuncture and Healing Arts Medical Group. As of July 2013 Chuck Sullivan bought the practice and proudly serves the Memphis community.
By creating balance in your body, your life changes direction.
Mike Falcone, MSTOM , OBT, Dipl.OM, LAc
I hold a Master of Science of Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA. as well as a degree in Oriental Body Therapy. I am nationally licensed as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), and am a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Tennessee.
I started practicing Chinese medicine in Memphis in 2009. I have given talks on chronic pain management at the UT Family Health and Psychiatry Symposium (2011) and at Methodist University Hospital (2012). Since 2010 I have taught Eastern Approaches to Healthcare to each graduating class at the Massage Institute of Memphis. Since 2012 I have been a Professional Advisory Committee Member for them as well.
My major experience is in acupuncture for internal medicine, orthopedics, pain management, and mental-emotional disorders, as well as classical Chinese herbology and Asian therapeutic bodywork.
From 2007-2009, I worked with the Fertile Soul, under Dr. Randine Lewis, helping couples with fertility challenges.
I know that true health is so much more than the lack of disease, it is allowing the full potential of your body, mind, and spirit to shine and radiate through your entire being. Chinese medicine is the perfect vehicle for aiding this process as its ability to diagnose underlying patterns of imbalance before they manifest in symptoms allows real preventative medicine to take place.
