Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is about restoring balance - balance to the chi flow, balance to one's health, balance to one's life. I do this by educating the person, first and foremost; so it's not what I can do for a person but what a person can do for themselves. The acupuncture can help the chi flow better, and the raw Chinese herbal formulas I give can also do that. But I also look at a person's eating habits, and their emotional, social, cultural and spiritual habits, all in the name of helping a person cultivate their own innate healing capabilities.

Michael Wayne is a NY and CA Licensed Acupuncturist with over 25 years experience in the field of Chinese Medicine. He is the author of the book Quantum-Integral Medicine: Towards a New Science of Healing and Human Potential. Articles by or about him have appeared in many magazines, including the American journals Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, Well-Being Journal, Let's Live, Nexus, Sedona Journal of Consciousness, and Wisdom; and the European journals Positive Health and Kindred Spirit. He has also been interviewed on radio and television stations around the country. Dr. Wayne is the Director of the Center for Quantum-Integral Medicine, and the founder of the IdeaLab, a thinktank aimed at developing creative solutions to issues in medicine, technology, business and the arts.

His next book, due out in June 2007, is a complete change of pace - it is a humorous, irreverent and quirky novel called The Knuckleball From Hell. It is a story about life, love, the New York Mets, and everything in between, and includes quantum physics, Hare Krishnas, the Department of Homeland Security, the superhero Donutman, surfer dudes, a Russian Cossack, and a color-coordinated Transylvanian vampire.
