Dr. Joseph "Chip" Beardsley MSOM, AP-DOM graduated from Florida College of Integrative Medicine in Orlando.
During his time there his interest in natural healing through Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine led him to auricular therapy, an ancient form of healing that uses the ear to detect and improve health problems. He found it to be so powerful that he spent time outside school to learn the art further.
For three years Chip studied the teachings of Dr. Li-Chun Huang, China's leading researcher in the field of Auricular Therapy and studied the techniques of Terry Oleson and Jim Shores, PhD who researched Auricular medicine from a technical, scientific view. Using fMRI, CAT scans and other western technologies to investigate the workings of the auricle. Coming up with a very detailed map and formularies for treatment of many illness and injuries.
Chip is one of few that has studied and trained in the use of both eastern and western techniques.
This gives him a distinct advantage when it comes to the treatment of illness and disease.
Dr. Yang has bestowed the title "Master Auricular Therapist" to Dr. Chip due to his extensive training under Dr. Li-Chun Huang tutelage and his energetic methods of bringing this ancient art back to life.
