Paul J. Robison, L.Ac., MTCM, NCCAOM Diplo

 

Paul believes that when we bring greater awareness to the small choices we make every day, our health begins to flourish.

 

From having cancer in his adolescence to an emergency sigmoidectomy during a stressful corporate career, Paul has overcome many personal health crises. His different experiences with illness and injury slowly reshaped his perception of health and eventually aligned him with a holistic philosophy of living, motivating him  to shift his career and study medicine. 

 

The positive experiences he had with acupuncture  during his healing led him to study Chinese Medicine at Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, CA, where he obtained his Master's Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and completed a 2,200-hour intensive clinical apprenticeship with an emphasis in tui na, craniosacral, and martial arts.  While a student, he practiced qigong, discovered meditation, found a healing community, and began striving to cultivate peace and wellness in all facets of his life. 

 

Today, he  lives with his wife in the wonderful town of Mount Rainier, Maryland and practices his healing arts in the heart of Washington, DC.
