Chris Goodman-smith MD, DACM, Lac

Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine

About Me

I am a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM) with a passion for integrative medical practices that equip patients with a holistic approach to wellness.

I utilize acupuncture, cupping, massage, herbal medicine, nutrition, and breathing and meditation techniques to treat patients with an array of clinical needs.

My primary focal areas include chronic illness, pain management, sports medicine, oncology, neurological disorders and rehabilitation, mental and emotional health, digestive disorders, insomnia, and addiction.

I received my DACM degree from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco. My path to Chinese medicine was forged as a child growing up in Hong Kong and through an early fascination with health and nutrition as an avid rugby, rackets, and squash player throughout my adolescence in England. I went on to study Biochemistry at Colorado College, I was an apprentice to acupuncturists in Beijing, and I received a medical degree (MD) from the University of the East in Manila, Philippines.

Thanks to my varied experiences around the world, I have gained a deep appreciation for the many systems of care and medicine that can help people thrive, and I am grateful for the opportunity to share my knowledge with my patients.
