Dr. Robert L. Bastress II, DACM, M.Div., MMQ, L. Ac.  

Dr. Bastress is a Nationally Board-Certified Licensed Acupuncturist. He earned a master's degree at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, Maryland, in 1999. He is a 2003 Jaffe Institute of Spiritual and Medical Healing graduate specializing in Spiritual Ministry. He earned a Master's in medical Qigong in 2016 and his doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Pacific College of Health and Science in 2022. Robert has extensive training in neuro-acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, and nutrition response testing. 
Robert has more than two decades of experience in private practice. He specializes in natural allergy elimination, neurological conditions, digestive disorders, and women’s health. 

He is certified in special allergy elimination treatments, including SAAT (acupuncture) and BioSET (laser) allergy elimination techniques. 
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is a diagnostic method that uses applied kinesiology to evaluate the nervous system, glands, and organs for hidden stress from foods, environmental pathogens, heavy metals, toxic chemicals, and scars that interfere with healing. Dr. Bastress includes NRT in the initial visit to get a clear picture of your health issues and how the seven hidden stressors may affect your health. 

His background in Sufi spiritual ministry complements the acupuncture sessions. Research shows that painful emotions, especially from childhood, are associated with most chronic ailments. Spiritual healing focuses on connection with The Divine (or whatever helps you to connect to Love) to receive compassion and brings healing, peace, wisdom, and resolution to the heart.

He provides free community lectures discussing holistic approaches to headaches and migraines, chronic pain, digestive issues, allergies and asthma, and women’s health. He teaches classes in crane style and medical Qigong exercises.

Dr. Bastress shares, "I had migraines with vomiting, night sweats, and bowel issues from age six. Medical exams, including bloodwork, x-rays, and sonograms, revealed no issues or help. This led me on a journey to discover the roots of my health issues through acupuncture, herbs, qigong, and spiritual healing, and it has helped me tremendously. It would be my pleasure to help you!
