Welcome

I’ve just begun working on this site, so please excuse.

I am the creator and a practitioner of the Integrative Acupressure bodywork modality, synthesizing traditional Chinese medicine with my own forms of structural and emotional/trauma work. I founded a school in 1984, the New England Institute for Integrative Acupressure, that ran until 1996.  I currently split my time between my acupressure practice and my web development business, Itabix Inc. Yes, they’re an odd combination but I need and love the variety.


I’ve finally gotten my 1982 album, Music of the Five Elements, re-released, this time on the wonderful Séance Centre Records out of Toronto, Canada. It’s first being released on LP, with CD and digital download to follow.

Music of the Five Elements was a result of my research at Hampshire College, into how sound and music can affect the meridians of acupuncture/acupressure.  More Information and purchase


I’ve also been gradually chipping away at a pretty drastic revision of my 1998 book, Integrative Acupressure, and I’m hoping to re-release that again pretty soon. If you’re interested, please submit your name and email address in the form on the Contact page and I’ll let you know when it’s available.

Thank you for visiting, and please come back hopefully after I’ve gotten more work done on the site.
