Certifications & Specialities
As a Pennsylvania Licensed and Nationally Board Certified Acupuncturist practicing in the Lehigh Valley, Warren Miles is a pioneer in providing safe, effective, and meaningful acupuncture to people with acute and chronic pain, including individuals involved in motor vehicle accidents, and those suffering from sports or repetitive strain injuries. At Saucon Valley Acupuncture, Warren Miles performs structural acupuncture, a new style of treatment that is groundbreaking in the healing of musculoskeletal disorders. Warren developed this style utilizing several different healing modalities over two decades of study: Structural integration (Rolfing®); Spinal mechanics; Visceral manipulation; neural manipulation; and finally acupuncture.
Warren received a Master of Science in Acupuncture (MSAC) from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City, achieving honors in Kiiko Matsumoto’s Japanese style. Tri-State is one of the oldest acupuncture colleges in the US. Its founder, Mark Seem, developed Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM), a highly effective style of acupuncture combining Janet Travell’s trigger point therapy with a French Vietnamese meridian style.
The Miles Method®
In addition, Warren has training in motor-point technique a highly successful western therapy developed in the United States. Motor-point therapy utilizes a gentle electric stimulation to individual muscles via acupuncture needles. This stimulation “resets” the tension in the muscle via your nervous system. Similar in appearance to Transdermal Electrical Stimulation (TENS), motor point technique may only be performed by board certified state licensed acupuncturists as they utilize acupuncture needles to connect with the motor-point beneath the skin. Highly effective at bringing swift relief to tense painful conditions, often misunderstood by other healthcare providers, Warren’s “Miles Method®” is the keystone to his safe and effective approach.
Warren is also a Certified Advanced Rolfer with over twenty years’ experience, training at the distinguished Rolf Institute Of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado. He is a Pilates instructor with countless hours of personalized and group instruction with many teachers over the years: Including Master Teacher, Karen Carlson in Allentown, PA in the 1990′s, and also in Philadelphia.
Alternative Healthcare Clinic
Warren opened the first Pilates studio in the Lehigh Valley area over a decade ago, and has many years of experience and depth of biomechanics. Continuing to expand his method of acupuncture as an alternative to traditional healthcare, he has plans to teach his Miles Method® to acupuncturists and certify them in the very near future.
