Bio of Craig Amrine L.Ac.
Craig Amrine is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Arizona (L.Ac.) and has received his Masters of Science degree in acupuncture from the accredited Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture (PIHMA) in Phoenix, Arizona. He is also a nationally board certified Diplomate in Acupuncture with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). He runs acupuncture clinics both in Tempe and Eloy, Arizona.
His academic background includes a B.S. in Ceramic Engineering from Alfred University at Alfred, NY in 1991. His engineering career has included research and development in fields of glass composition and property modeling, field-emission display development, and a revolutionary embedded chip technology for semi-conductor packaging applications. He currently holds 18 patents within these fields and has several additional patents pending. Craig's passion for learning is now directed, however, to the latest studies and research within Acupuncture and Low-Level Laser Therapy.
Craig also has over 24 years as a martial-artist; both teaching and training in several forms of Japanese and Brazilian martial-arts. He also has over 13 years teaching and training in Ashtanga and Power Yoga. The experience gained in these studies led to the pursuit as a healer within the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Craig’s vast background as a scientist, professional athlete, teacher, and healer has given him a unique perspective on health, fitness, nutrition, and Eastern philosophy, and he utilizes this experience towards his style of treatments for his patients.
When not practicing or researching acupuncture and cold-laser therapy, Craig spends his free time teaching yoga at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA) in Tempe, teaching martial arts, and competing, coaching, filming, or photographing freefly skydiving at Skydive Arizona in Eloy, Arizona.
