Meet Artin

Artin’s passion for acupuncture came about after a sports injury that left him in pain and with no options.  Acupuncture helped him recover so rapidly that he decided to study acupuncture and help people in the same way.

Since 2005, Artin has helped numerous clients with a variety of acute and chronic health issues ranging from depression and anxiety to digestive issues, PMS, and chronic pain.  He specially welcomes difficult cases.

Artin studied Oriental Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, and continued his studies at the Maryland University of Intergrative Health.

Artin’s extensive research  background in oncology, pharmacology, and immunology allows him to truly bridge eastern and western medicine principles to create optimal results for clients just like you.

Previous to acupuncture, Artin’s interests and work included research at institutions such as National Institutes of healthLombardi Cancer Center, and La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology, where he made numerous contributions throughout his research career.

Artin has over 20 peer reviewed publications in scientific journals on subjects ranging from neuropharmacology; cancer research; HIV infection and host response; basic and applied immunology; rheumatoid arthritis and sjogrens disease; to electromagnetism and foundations of life.

Artin is National Board Certified in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine by National Commission on Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAOM), and an addiction and detoxification specialist(ADS).
