Chris Fadgen, M.Ac.

Chris Fadgen completed his Master of Acupuncture degree from Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH, formerly Tai Sophia Institute) in 2008. He studied Five Element Acupuncture with early pioneers of acupuncture in the United States and offers a really unique blend of Chinese Medicine and personal empowerment counseling. His degree is from a fully accredited, three year graduate level program. Chris has completed extended studies in the Yao Shan Chinese Herb Program and the Chinese Medicine Specialty Rotations Program through Yao Shan Seminars.

Chris has served as a Transformative Practice Group Leader at MUIH for 2+ years. His role of TPG leader was to guide students of the acupuncture program in the embodied practice of skills related to patient centered healing and patient empowerment. He brings a strong focus on transformative counseling to his sessions in addition to symptom relief.

Chris’ approach encourages clients to view their symptoms as “teachers” that, if recognized and embraced, can open up new possibilities for better health.

Massage Therapy

Joshua Summers, RMT

Joshua Summers is a Registered Massage Therapist in the greater Baltimore Area for 5+ years.  He has worked with horse trainers, mothers, Special Forces, Naval veterans, roofers, and NBA players.  Joshua provides Sports Massage and Deep Tissue Massage and is a Certified Trivita Health Coach.

Josh believes that most healers come from a journey of pain, either through personal experience or second hand; his journey to holistic healing was a mixture of both. Growing up he watched as his mother worked through pain due to poor body mechanics and lifestyle choices to take care of her family, and had his own ailments from years in the martial arts world: Roman Greco, Folk style, Freestyle Wrestling, and Taekwondo. 

Josh’s goal is to restore and maintain the homeostatic balance of the patient, with Massage Therapy being a key aspect of healing. He loves collaborating with different specialists to create a true patient-focused environment.
