Joshua Warren

Joshua graduated from Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts in Asheville, NC with his Master’s in 2017. His education focused on the Classical roots of Chinese medicine, challenging him to develop a practice that investigates the deeper aspects of disease and one that embodies compassionate healing presence. He uses these perspectives in developing adaptable treatment strategies to meet old diseases with new names.

Joshua considers health to be a dynamic process of connection and communication, rather than a sentence or a destination. The use of not simply Acupuncture, but herbal medicine, moxibustion, tui na massage, daoyin movement as well as dietary therapy are all designed to adjust the biophysical process when we are unwell. His practice aims to empower individuals and to show them how health is of the highest of investments.

Joshua relocated to Washington DC in December 2017 to practice in both private and community settings, and now tends to the needs of a diverse demographic of people from varying economic backgrounds throughout the city . He has experience treating a wide-range of disorders, and has a particular interest in pain management and stress reduction, digestive and sleep issues, as well as psychoemotional concerns.

In his spare time he enjoys writing, drawing, hiking, drinking coffee, and discussing medicine and astrology with friends and kindred strangers.
