Breast and Prostate Health
Prostate cancer is the most frequent cancer in men, while breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Modern biomedicine has so far done little except to advance the accuracy of diagnosis, but Chinese medicine may offer techniques that can really prevent or improve the condition of the breast and prostate, key to nourishing the life of women and men.
Alex A. Tiberi, Lic. Ac.
For the past twenty-five years, Alex Tiberi has practiced East Asian medicine in both its most traditional and most modern forms. Having served as an apprentice with a sixth generation Korean master of East Asian medicine, Alex is proficient in the ancient five element and constitutional forms of acupuncture. His training in modern western science has allowed him to integrate traditional East Asian medical concepts with modern biomedical theory.
Being a long term practitioner of the martial arts and a participant in many diverse athletic pursuits has stimulated Alex’s research in the treatment of orthopedic disorders and sports medicine. He is particularly proficient in using modern orthopedic assessment methods to guide Chinese medical treatments. He incorporates a wide range of physiotherapy techniques in his treatments and is an accomplished practitioner of several different styles of tuina.
A father of two children, Alex has developed a clinical speciality in pediatrics. He combines the Japanese method of shoni-shin, Chinese pediatric tuina, acupuncture and herbology, and cutaneous electrostim to provide a comprehensive treatment method for children.
Alex is a graduate of the Institute for Acupuncture Studies in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He has also studied at the Shang Hai College of TCM in the People’s Republic of China and has participated in a variety of specialized training programs including electro- acupuncture, laser acupuncture, Qigong, etc. He is currently Vice-president and Dean of the Dept. of Oriental Medicine at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, San Diego, CA.
