Christian Cristiano Bio:
Christian Cristiano received his Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. The school’s renowned full-time program requires students to combine coursework with concurrent clinical internships, providing exposure to patients during the entire four years of study.
Christian received his B.S. in Business Administration and Marketing. After graduating, he started and managed a successful personal training business instilling in him a passion for helping people reach their goals.
Christian also studied at the University of Madrid at Cumplutense, where he became fluent in Spanish. After spending two years in Madrid, Christian was recruited for an extremely stressful position at a high-profile company in Chicago. He soon started suffering from shortness of breath and other respiratory issues, prompting him to visit several western MDs. Each diagnosed his condition as stress-related, and despite the fact that he was in his 20s and in otherwise good health, two of the doctors prescribed heavy tranquilizers.
Christian never filled the prescriptions. Instead, he visited a prominent Acupuncturist, Dr. Tony Lu, who cured his ailments in just three treatments. These incredible results, coupled with his passion for health and fitness, inspired Christian to pursue a career in Chinese medicine. He moved to San Diego to study Acupuncture, and has since developed an esteemed reputation for his comprehensive skills and goal-oriented practice.
Christian works to help patients achieve their healing objectives as quickly as possible. For some patients, it may be simply to heal an illness or injury. For others, it is a crucial element in a health maintenance, illness prevention or overall wellness plan. In addition, some programs may require weekly visits to ensure a homeostatic state so that organs function properly and in balance.
In his free time, he enjoys surfing, yoga, qi gong, lifting weights and running with his dog in the canyon. He continues to study Chinese Medicine.
