Adam Cantor is an NCCAOM nationally certified acupuncturist, licensed in New York State. He is the owner and chief medical officer at Mind Body Medicine Acupuncture.
Training in martial arts on day, he was injured and when his physician offered no solutions, he found himself in the office of an acupuncturist. Amazed at how quickly he felt relief, Adam decided to pursue a masters degree from the Tri-State College of Acupuncture, one of the oldest Chinese medical schools in North America (honors). As a martial artist and former personal trainer, it was only natural that he was drawn to working with the human body. Adam's deep interest in medicine also drew him to China where he studied at the Beijing Traditional Chinese Medicine University, one of China's top medical colleges. While in China, he visited and studied at several Beijing hospitals, participating in rounds and lectures.
Back in the U.S., Adam apprenticed with the acupuncturist who healed his injuries, learning how to combine orthopedic bodywork (tui na) with acupuncture, structural mobilization and Chinese herbs to treat acute trauma, chronic pain and muscuoskeletal dysfunction. With a great interest in sports medicine, he also worked alongside Dr. Alex Moroz at NYU Langone Medical Center’s Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine in Manhattan, one of the top rehab hospitals in the United States. Adam also spent several years studying and refining advanced Osteopathic and Orthopedic techniques of Chinese medicine as taught by renown clinicians and teachers, Tom Bisio and Frank Butler.
Always interested in learning more, Adam has spent the past several years studying Classical Chinese medicine from the Jade Purity Daoist tradition of Jeffrey Yuen with master practitioner, Tim Aitken. He has traveled to the sacred Himalayan Mountains with his teacher to perform medical relief work in some of the poorest and most remote regions of the world.

Drawn to Oriental medicine because of its effectiveness in treating the whole person instead of just their symptoms, Adam's holistic approach helps to prevent the recurrence of illness and discourage new pathology from arising. The beauty of Chinese medicine is its inherent ability to treat the entire individual-- body, mind, and spirit, together.
