Mr. Reinhard graduated from Georgia Tech in 1981 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering, specializing in Fiber Optics and Integrated Optics. He then moved to Seattle to work for Boeing. In 1983 he learned Therapeutic Touch and discovered his true calling in Alternative Medicine and realized how much more rewarding it was to help people feel better than it was working on planes or missiles. He received his training as an Acupressure Therapist from the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NIAOM) and was licensed as a Massage Therapist in 1987. In 1990 he graduated from NIAOM as an Acupuncture Therapist and received his State License (L.Ac., Washington) and National Board (DipI. Ac. (NCCAOM)) Certification in Acupuncture. After working part-time with an MD and a Naturopath/Acupuncturist, Mark founded Valley Acupuncture Center in 1991. In 1992, he was certified as a detox Acupuncturist by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) and then worked part-time at a detox clinic in Tacoma, WA for about a year. Mark has been a frequent guest on the cable health show “The Healers” and is former Membership Director and Treasurer for the Acupuncture Association of Washington. He has taught Electro-Acupuncture at NIAOM, SIOM and Bastyr University. He had a stroke in December 2015. During his convalescence, he decided to use the time to write about his convalescence and treating himself with scalp acupuncture(“Acupuncture and Stroke, a personal experience” (not yet released)). In it he describes his experience using acupuncture to treat himself. He then decided to write this book as well to share the knowledge he has gained over his over 29 years of practice. His specialties are Electro-Acupuncture and Scalp Acupuncture. Over 80% of the patients he treats find at least some relief. He is also currently designing and building several electroacupuncture machines as well that can do all the things described in this book since there is no such devices on the market.
