Brit C. Potter, Jr. D.Ac., L.Ac.

I have a B.S. degree in Mathematics and Computer Science, a M.S degree in Computer Science and a Masters Level diploma in Classical Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture and a Doctor of Acupuncture Degree, I am also a firm supporter of Western Medicine. I encourage my patients to use BOTH modalities, each when most appropriate. I work with other physicians when appropriate, to foster an integrated care approach.

I encourage patients to share their unique health story, then together we create a treatment plan to meet their healthcare goals.

I incorporate my knowledge of acupuncture, tai ji, qi gong, diet, and lifestyle modifications so that each person is supported in reaching their greatest health potential. I make every effort to provide consistency through pain or illness, which can be a difficult journey.

I know the human body to be a remarkable vehicle for change. I have witnessed first-hand the powerful potential of energetic healing and the challenges presented in achieving health. This has been my experience through managing my own autoimmune disease, which led me to study and assist others on their journey to alleviate personal suffering.

I received my graduate diploma from Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine, where I was taught to understand the energetic design of the human body and how it interacts within the laws of nature. Studies abroad in the Mayan healing technique of Divine Intervention support my underlying belief that in order to achieve true wellness, it is essential to treat the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies as a whole.

I bring these aspects into my approach to care by re-establishing a balance of the laws of nature, restoring the innate intelligence within the physical body and allowing the patient to become an active participant in restoring health within.

I have been a registered nurse for 40 years. I have experienced personally and professionally the benefits of acupuncture. It is important to ask questions. Why do I have pain? Why am I feeling this way?

Acupuncture allows the practitioner and the patient to work together to get to the root of the problem and it can work beautifully.
