Born and raised in Wyoming, Ryan works as a registered NADA ear acupuncture trainer and an acupuncturist in the US/Mexico border region, and serves as the Executive Director of Crossroads Acupuncture.  Ryan coordinates Crossroads’ training program for addictions and behavioral health providers as well as for health promoters.  Bilingual English and Spanish, he uses a variety of techniques in the clinic including scalp, auricular, “Tan” style, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Japanese.  His technique is extremely gentle, but he also offers Trigger Point therapy for appropriate clients.

He is licensed by the state of New Mexico as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, and is certified in NM as a supervisor for behavioral health programs that utilize ear acupuncture.   He received his education in acupuncture at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR and Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx, NY.  His experience includes working at acupuncture-based clinics such as the Warrior Resilience Center and the Interdisciplinary Pain Management Clinic at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, TX, as well as Hooper Detox Center, Project Quest, and Outside In in Portland, OR.  He is a contributing writer for acupuncture publications including Guidepoints and AcuTake, and has worked as a consultant for the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association.  He enjoys his free time hiking and traveling in the desert here in the southwest.
