Michael Cohen is a licensed acupuncturist with undergraduate and master’s degrees from the University of Florida and Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California.
Michael’s desire to become an acupuncturist began after three of his loved ones became ill with cancer. At the time, he was working in finance for a Fortune 500 company and decided to make a shift from helping people with their money to helping people with their health.
The decision to choose acupuncture over western medicine arose from his desire to find an alternative for people to feel better without resorting to the potential side effects and often costly alternatives of taking medications or immediately getting surgery. Through careful research from The World Health Organization and PubMed and first-hand experience of receiving treatments from a Licensed Acupuncturist, Michael discovered and chose acupuncture.
In his spare time, Michael enjoys running near the Aliso Viejo area and training for marathons, playing the guitar, and trying new restaurants and breweries.
