Mr. Boyle is a Diplomat in Oriental Medicine, which is awarded by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine when all four national board exams (acupuncture, herbology, western bio-medicine, and Chinese medicine) are successfully passed. He is also a diplomat in chinese herbology and acupuncture.  As a Diplomat in Oriental Medicine, practitioners must complete 60 hours of continuing education every two years.

At the prestigious Florida College of Integrative Medicine (FCIM), Mr. Boyle graduated at the top of his class (summa cum laude – 4.0 GPA) with a four-year Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine.

Mr. Boyle  completed his undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh, which is known for its prestigious medical program.  For the last 5 years, he has been Dr. Cushing’s apprentice and studied many other natural modalities, skills we feel separate him from the average acupuncturist.
