Jonathan Pyndus LAc., Dipl. NCCAOM, LMT, graduated from the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine & combines Chinese and Japanese modalities in his Houston Heights acupuncture practice.
After years of intermittent pain, a lumbar disc injury eventually introduced Jonathan to Traditional Chinese Medicine, after exhausting many other options. He found relief & ultimately full recovery through acupuncture & Qigong practice, inspiring him to share this blessing with others.
After graduating from the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, his martial arts teacher in Japan connected him with the Saitou family, who would introduce Jon to the philosophy, art, and technique of Japanese acupuncture.
Jonathan is honored to be a student of Saitou Kaoru Sensei, who instructs him in the Nihon Keiraku Chiryo tradition of Japanese acupuncture. He travels annually to Kashiwa in Chiba, Japan, to continue his studies in this 400-year-old lineage. Meanwhile, he stays in tune with the latest worldwide developments in Oriental and Complementary medicine via annual summits.
Jonathan is also a licensed massage therapist. His massage education at Avalon School of Massage (inclusive of Swedish, deep tissue, Thai, shiatsu & aromatherapy modalities) gave him a firm grounding in the musculoskeletal systems of the body. He combines this knowledge with his Tui Na Chinese Bodywork studies to provide the best physical care he can for his patients.
A lifelong martial artist, Jonathan holds instructor ranks in Japanese, Korean, Indonesian & Chinese systems including Tai Chi Chuan. He is a former competitor, with gold medals in stick combat and push hands, and silver in continuous sparring.
