Meet Dr. Glen Earl


With over 30 years experience in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Dr. Glen Earl brings a wealth of knowledge to Synergy Wellness Center.

Beginning his journey in the health profession in Big Sur, California his intention was to become a traditional M.D. After falling extremely ill, he received his first acupuncture treatment that changed his career path forever.

Dr. Glen Earl began his career studying under some of the most renowned Oriental Medicine Doctors in the world, including Dr. Tin Yao So, Dr. John Shen, and Dr. Ted Kaptachuck. During this time, he also lived as a Buddhist monk in a Korean Zen Center, fully immersing himself into the Asian lifestyle. Later, he received advanced training in both acupuncture and herbal medicine at the Long Wah Hospital in Shanghai, China.

As a founding member of both the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, he was instrumental in writing the national exam for both acupuncture and herbal medicine. During this time, Dr. Earl received his Ph.D., writing a doctoral thesis on lupus and autoimmune deficiency disorders.  During this time he received an Acupuncturist of the Year Award.

As an O.M.D practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine, he’s a family practitioner and treats a diverse array of concerns. Some of the techniques he uses, in both diagnosis and treatment, are known by only a handful of practitioners in the United States. We are proud to have Dr. Glen Earl’s unique experience on staff as we are confident he will deliver an unparallelled experience for our acupuncture patients.

“To me, Oriental Medicine is more of an art than a science. Don’t get me wrong, the science behind Oriental Medicine is sold. But what makes it truly effective – and occasionally transformative – is the intuitive nature that a dedicated practitioner develops through clinical experience.” – Dr. Glen Earl
