Dr. Eric Brunn incorporates a wide variety of modalities into each treatment to offer a gentle, balanced approach that is relaxing and restorative. Having been heavily influenced by Japanese traditions, Dr. Brunn utilizes Japanese Meridian Therapy and other Japanese styles of Acupuncture in every session. Treatment regularly includes care for both the front and back of the body, including manual bodywork and moxibustion. He enjoys treating children as well as adults, with success in treating a wide range of complaints such as, but not limited to: stress, pain, sports injuries, sleep and digestive disorders, and health issues unique to men and women. He will often incorporate manual therapies with Acupuncture by retaining needles while doing CranioSacral therapy or MyoFascial Release. He is a firm believer that prevention is the best medicine, and that you don't know how good you can feel… until you do!

His passion for Japanese Meridian Therapy led Eric to study with many masters of Japanese Acupuncture both stateside and in Japan. This study included an in depth focus on non-insertive Root Treatment (holding fine instruments on or near the skin without inserting needles in the body), using handmade Silver Needles (Teishin), Moxibustion, Extraordinary Vessel treatment, Japanese Strain / Counterstrain treatment (Sotai), Kampo herbal diagnosis, Pediatrics (Shonihari), and numerous styles of handwork from the Japanese tradition.

Dr. Eric Brunn is nationally Board Certified by the NCCAOM, and licensed by the State of New Mexico as a primary care physician.


Personal and Professional Background

Eric has been fascinated by holistic medicine since his early youth. As a young athlete he became well versed in natural approaches to recovery through simple remedies like Traumeel, Arnica, and Calendula. This expanded to in-depth Nutritional, Herbal and Homeopathic treatment, as well as hands-on therapy to find solutions to his health concerns. A nagging shoulder dislocation brought him to Integrative Manual Therapy. IMT is a manual therapy that has roots in Osteopathy, but has become a distinctly unique form of therapy. It incorporates MyoFascial Release, CranioSacral Therapy, Strain Counter-Strain and many other techniques.
