Marco Leclerc, DAc., LAc., MAOM
Marco was introduced into the exciting field of East-Asian and Holistic medicine through his exploration into personal health and wellness. He originally developed an interest in the healing arts through learning and practicing Reiki and Yoga, as well as learning about lifestyle, diet, and various herbal therapies. Deeper interest developed with how Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help the body overcome or manage chronic health and pain issues. This prevents an individual from achieving a sense of well being in life. Marco believes healing can arrive for a patient in a myriad of forms. Various avenues and combinations of traditional, holistic, and modern medical therapies can work in tandem to improve the quality of life for an individual. Marco strives to become aware of each patient’s individual needs, working to achieve the highest potential for healing.
