Dr. Ryan Altman, DACM, L.Ac., HHP is the Founder and Executive Director of Alternative Healing Network. Ryan is a graduate of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and practices a combination of Classical Japanese acupuncture with Reiki, offering gentle, energetic treatments that follow meridian theory while using lighter gauge needles and a shallow insertion. This is good for anyone who may be a bit more needle sensitive.
While still a student at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, Ryan created the San Diego Healing Arts Festival, a free community event that brings music and healing together, allowing a fun and accessible forum to teach the public about integrative health care. With the help of affiliations with Pacific College, and other local institutions of higher learning, he created a series of Free Community Wellness events (“Integrative Health Nights”) to offer health services to under-served communities. This became the foundation of the entire organization and Alternative Healing Network was born. In June 2008, Ryan created Adams Avenue Integrative Health (AAIH),as a community oriented integrative health center that operates on a sliding scale to make services available and affordable to everyone.
