David Gaglione has been inspired to practice traditional oriental medicine through his experiences in the martial arts. He has trained in hapkido, aikido, jiu-jitsu, and taichi, and maintains his practice by training in qigong and taichi under Master William Ting. He is a 1999 graduate of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, with licensure in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. Prior to his formal medical studies, he taught for the US Peace Corps in the Solomon Islands, and later High School mathematics in El Paso, Texas. He has since come back to his hometown, establishing and maintaining a lively business in oriental medicine since the year 2000. He lives locally with his wife Teri, and is a step-father to Teri’s two children Joshua and Serena, as well as grandfather to the first child of Serena and husband Matt, “baby” Carter!
Dr. Beverly Gaglione, his mother, practiced along with David from 2004-2017, having passed away at the end of that year. Beverly enjoyed a 30 year tenure as professor of nursing at the local East Stroudsburg University; upon her retirement, she enrolled in the Eastern School of Acupuncture in Montclair, NJ, graduating in 2004. Unbeknownst to her son, she too was influenced by acquaintance with an accomplished martial artist (Patrick Browne), who also happened to be an acupuncturist in the 1970’s, and who would visit her classes to lecture from time to time.
