Biographical Info

Chris’ passion for medicine stems from a profound desire to help others dramatically change their lives. Chris believes that true health isn’t just a matter of treating disease or fixing pain; rather, true health means aging gracefully, living free from pain, fatigue, or chronic health problems. A truly healthy person is happy, energetic and vibrant. A healthy person wakes in the morning with a smile on their face and love in their heart. That is a healthy person.
To this end, Chris has spent time treating patients in variety of settings and with a broad spectrum of health conditions. Chris received his Masters of Oriental Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. He has spent considerable time working in-patient at Woodwinds Hospital and Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute while living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Following this, Chris worked for Carolinas Healthcare System (CHS) working at CMC-Northeast Hospital and Northeast Internal & Integrative Medicine. While here, Chris spent time in almost every department of the hospital seeing patients who were not responding well to conventional treatment. One of Chris’ proudest achievements while working for CHS is co-authoring a treatment program for people suffering from fibromyalgia syndrome. Chris also spent 2 years working for the Acupuncture & Wellness Center in Poulsbo, WA. This is one of the largest clinics in the US and Chris was able to treat more than 30 patients per day with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
Chris is now a partner at The Vitality Center in Denver, CO. He specializes in the treatment of chronic problems such as chronic pain conditions, fibromyalgia, arthritis, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The Vitality Center is a unique clinic in that rather than just applying treatment to a disease (we call this “bandaid medicine”), the practitioners work to educate the patients in how they can improve their lifestyle such that it promotes health, wellbeing, and longevity.
Apart from Chinese medicine, Chris spends most of his free time with his two sons. He loves playing music, hiking, martial arts, and any time he can spend with friends and family.
