Zheng Gu Tui Na (ZGTN) is a highly specialized form of bodywork which focuses on structural reintegration and postural realignment. Preserved through the martial arts, ZGTN offers a wealth of exercise strategies cultivated from Daoist Longevity practices and the Internal Martial Arts.

To this powerful modality Marcus adds orthopedic-style acupuncture, the many sub-modalities of Chinese Trauma Medicine and craniosacral techniques to complete a multifaceted approach to the body.  The result has been many years of providing relief from all manner of injury and pain.

Through the lens of Chinese Medicine these modalities also combine to become very effective in treating a wide array of internal disorders including migraine headaches, TMJ, digestive imbalance, symptoms related to Lyme disease, neuropathy, post-surgery recovery, insomnia, anxiety, high blood pressure…and so many more.

TESTIMONIALS

Bio-Round

Marcus DeGrazia is a New York State licensed acupuncturist who has studied Qi Gong, Ba Gua Zhang and Zheng Gu Tui Na intensively since 2006. He is also a classically trained musician with degrees from the University of Michigan. In 1995, shortly after completing his studies in Ann Arbor, Marcus relocated to New York City and formed a collective of musicians that toured the United States, Canada, and Europe extensively. Through years of improvising with musicians and modern dancers, Marcus developed a love for movement, bodywork and martial arts.

In 2006, Marcus began an apprenticeship with Tom Bisio, delving deeply into the Internal Arts, Tui Na, and Chinese Medicine.  In 2009, after completing a degree at Tri-State College of Acupuncture , Marcus joined Tom’s clinic as a practitioner specializing in trauma, Chinese sports medicine, and orthopedic conditions.  Marcus was fortunate to work closely with Mr. Bisio for almost 7 years.

In 2012, Marcus became a certified instructor for New York Internal Arts and Zheng Gu Tui Na. In 2014, Marcus relocated to the Hudson Valley where he practices acupuncture, teaches Qi Gong and plays music.

Chinese Medicine asks the patient to become an active participate in the healing process.  This means daily exercises aimed at regulating the problem or injury while re-thinking diet and lifestyle choices.  The patient can then move away from clinic visits empowered with a strategy that can help maintain health and vigor.  This idea of "working together" makes a profound difference in the patient's success and rate of recovery.
