My name is Charles Raymond. I have been practicing Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine here in Boise since 1992. I studied four years at the Five Branches Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I  am Licensed by the State of Idaho, and NCCAOM certified.

My desire for each patient that comes to see me is two fold. One is to alleviate your health challenges, and two, provide you with a greater sense of well being. My first experience with acupuncture began in 1978 as a patient. My acupuncturist and my treatments left me so inspired that I decided I wanted to study acupuncture. I spent 2 years studying with Michael Turk in Chico CA. In 1988 I enrolled in a 4 year program in Traditional Chinese Medicine. For the last 22 years I have practiced in Boise and continue to study, taking classes yearly.

I utilize several types of acupuncture styles to create, what I believe to be, one of the most effective treatments available today. I also have a comprehensive understanding of Chinese Herbal Medicine and my office has a very complete pharmacy, providing you with GMP quality (pharmaceutical grade) herbal products.

I have served on the Board of the Idaho Acupuncture Association for 8 years and the Idaho State Acupuncture Board for 13 years.  I am Licensed in California, Idaho, and NCCAOM certified, providing affordable health care since 1992 to the Treasure Valley.
