We have been blessed with so many incredible teachers over the years, who have played crucial roles in adding and help cultivate the large volume of knowledge that we have today.


Janet Travell MD, whose life’s work demonstrated and proved that pain occurs as a direct result of muscular dysfunction. Her incredible efforts to clarify pain patterns and how to eliminate them formed an unshakable base on which to grow our knowledge of dry needling.

Dr. Ismail Patel (L.Ac), who not only inspired us by his charismatic teaching methods, but was always an avid believer in the true miracles that one could achieve with a needle. He proved this time and time again in his own practice. Your wonderful spirit and knowledge is sorely missed. Rest in peace old friend.

Dr. John Amaro D.C; FACC; FIAMA; Dipl Ac (IAMA) (NCCAOM); L AC., who started inspiring Dr. Angus as far back as 1992 with his articles in Dynamic Chiropractic. It has been a privilege for both of us to have studied under your tutorage.
