Sterling Richards LMT, MS, BCMT, CSCS, BCTMB
Dr. Robert Silverberg AP, BCTMB
As I learned more about this ancient medicine, my passion for it grew and I soon realized it was something I could share with others and pursue as my chosen field. After more than ten years, I decided to leave my music biz career and never looked back! I relocated to Austin, TX and attended the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. Studying with top practitioners from Chengdu, China, it was there that I developed my expertise not only in acupuncture and herbal medicine, but also other natural healing modalities including moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, tui na massage, qi gong, and tai chi.
As an acupuncture physician, I have treated patients in different healthcare settings all over the world including private practices, hospitals, community clinics, and even on cruise ships based in Australia! I love that I can do acupuncture almost anywhere! I am now practicing this medicine in Florida to be closer to my parents and sister who relocated to Winter Park. I currently retain licenses in both Texas and Florida.
And while I have the utmost respect for western medicine, as my own father is a retired physician, I believe there are too many individuals today who have unnecessary surgeries and/or are overmedicated. It is my passion to introduce as many people as possible to the more natural and holistic ways of healing that Chinese medicine provides. It is my sincere belief that everyone has the ability heal given proper treatment, guidance, and lifestyle. I am excited to help you get there!
