A Chat with John Aguilar, Jr, DAOM, EAMP
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? I offer professional, comprehensive Chinese medical services, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, diet and lifestyle counseling, as well as one-on-one tai chi/qigong, yoga, and meditation instruction. I stand at the leading edge of the field with a doctorate in acupuncture and Oriental medicine.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I have a passion for maximizing health and happiness, and Chinese medicine is the ideal system of medicine to act on this passion. It allows me to assess all aspects of an individual's being and offer treatment and guidance on reducing suffering and improving all aspects of life.
What do you love most about your job? Helping people transform their lives. It begins with symptom alleviation, but, at its best, the medicine as I practice it is about seeking out ways to motivate and assist in making the most out of life.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? Many times people have been absolutely amazed at how deep the medicine is. Pain has been removed, function increased, debilitation erased, but, even more, people rise to levels of enjoyment of life. They are more successful and excited in their day-to-day activities.
