Ted Gannon, LAc, PTA

Ted began his health care career as a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant back in 1996, which provided him with medical experience in health care settings that included acute care, ICU, cardiac rehabilitation, intensive rehabilitation, orthopedics and nursing homes. In 2003 he graduated from the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine and earned a Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine. He began his acupuncture career as a Primary Care Provider – as the law allows in Florida – in both private practice and in hospital settings. He is nationally certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and is licensed by the Ohio State Medical Board. Ted incorporates his knowledge of Western medicine with Eastern medicine, combining the use of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine toward the desired healing effect.

Ted is currently studying neuro-acupuncture with Drs. Jason and Linda Hao at the Neuro Acupuncture Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and is accepting patients for the below mentioned conditions. He has already begun helping patients with this new technique and knowledge.

Testimonials 

“Four years ago I had an organ transplant which left me in good health except that now I am plagued with neuropathy in both feet, ankles and legs. This has been ongoing for three years, because of the transplant there are many medications I cannot take, leaving me with very few options for medical treatment. As a last resort my primary care physician suggested trying acupuncture. He gave me the name of Ted Gannon who practices through University Hospitals Connor Integrative Health Network. To date after seven sessions I have had more positive results than ever before. I have regained feelings in both feet and legs and most importantly it has been a blessing to be able to sleep all night. I am going to continue the sessions as suggested by Mr. Gannon in hopes that my success will continue.”

Motto

“Acupuncture is about much more than the placement of a few needles. It is about the transmission of compassion, stimulating the patient's vital energy or Qi, and allowing the patient’s body, mind and spirit to heal itself.”
