Graduated from the Tai Sophia Institute (TSI), the oldest and only Middle States accredited acupuncture school in the United States. The education at Tai Sophia is unique in several ways, one of which is the fact that it is the only school that forces its students to study Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine separately. The curriculum is 5.5 yrs. instead of the usual 3-3.5 yrs. This is important to you the prospective patient because you can rest assured that our physician has been fully steeped in both of the major traditions of Chinese Medicine instead of trying to learn two huge fields at the same time. Since graduating from TAI, Drew has studied extensively with some of the most famous practitioners of the modern era including a two year clinical rotation course with Lonny Jarrett, the most famous practitioner of 5 element acupucture alive today. Drew has studied with Jeffrey Yuen, an 88th generation Taoist priest and chinese medicine master. He has also spent multiple hours with Li-Chun Huang, the world’s leading authority on Auricular Medicine.
