Chris Butler is a Licensed Acupuncturist with a specialization in fertility and gynecological issues. After graduating from a four year training program from NEW ENGLAND SCHOOL OF ACUPUNCTURE of school in 1996, 1993 Christopher completed an 18-month training in Chinese Medicine focused on gynecology. In 1998, he became the Lead clinician at THE ALOHA CLINIC where he treated patients with a range of acute and chronic health issues.
In 2008 Chris was Board Certified in Oriental Reproductive Medicine by the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, whose members are required to complete extensive study in the field of reproductive medicine, pass a Board Exam, and commit to continued training to remain in good standing.
A clinician committed to research and study, Chris began studying Functional Medicine in 2006. As a compliment to his training in Traditional Chinese Medicine, this has led to an even more robust understanding of how the body works as a system and insight into treating health issues that have not responded to other treatments.
Certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture, Chris believes educating his patients on how to become and stay healthy is a large part of his role. In addition to using acupuncture, herbal remedies, nutritional medicine, lifestyle counseling, to help his patients feel better, Chris helps them notice how sleep, exercise, diet, and relaxation affect their overall health, too.
Chris and his wife Darlene live in Chestnut Ridge, New York and has a daughter and two sons.
