Daniel Nemer L. O.M., Dipl. O.M.

Daniel Nemer AcupuncturistDaniel Nemer has been working in the field of East Asian and Alternative Medicine since 1996, with continual study, vast and varied experiences and an innate gift of compassion, Translating Health LLC, of which he is the founder, has become a flagship for his life work and mission. Incorporating acupressure massage, needle and non-needling therapy, energy work, and herbal preparations, Daniel’s emphasis in treatment is to release blocks or holding patterns from the body, restore balance, and promote “superior health,” the ideal state where a person may reach their full potential.

A lover of travel and adventure, in 2006, shortly after returning from study in China, Daniel left Philadelphia for five years to become one of a select few of practicing acupuncturist at sea––treating people on the largest “floating cities” and ports of nearly every continent. It was there he refined his techniques with an ever-changing international client base that demanded immediate results in only days, not months. During this time, he also gave regular lectures on Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Since returning to Philadelphia in 2011, Daniel’s holistic healing practice has flourished while also maintaining positions as a clinical supervisor, instructor and adjunct faculty for both the acupuncture and Chinese herb programs at the Won Institute of Graduate Studies, in Glenside, Pennsylvania. Daniel holds a Masters degree in Acupuncture from the Maryland University of Integrative Medicine, formerly the Traditional Acupuncture Institute, one of the oldest acupuncture schools in America and in addition holds certificates of advanced training in Facial Rejuvenation (the Acupuncture Face-Lift), Chinese Herbal medicine, Pain management techniques, Auriculotherapy and massage. A lifelong musician and composer, Daniel can also be heard singing and performing on the guitar.
