With some patients, Dr. Harasha uses his classical training of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Traditional Chinese Medicine uses diagnostic findings from the tongue, pulse, finger nails, and other body areas to help determine patterns of imbalance in the body. Orthopedics in this system is often done through older meridian channel theory and various balancing methods like Dr. Tan's. In some cases he may use Chinese herbs to help superficially or refer out to for in-depth herbal protocols.

What Our Clients Say:


"I was pretty desperate when I came to Dr. Harasha this past summer.  The pain from my fissure was lingering, and intense. I was on the verge of having surgery --  something I was dreading. As a last resort, I decided to give acupuncture a try.  What immediately impressed me about Dr. H (as I call him) was his knowledge and confidence.  We talked, came up with a plan, and then attacked my health issue. Not only did my condition begin to greatly improve --- but I enjoyed visiting with Dr. H and talking/learning about all sorts of health insights.  His acupuncture skills and lifestyle/food recommendations have been very beneficial. Fast forward a few months --- and he's now using a new, state-of-the-art laser on my fissure and other parts of my body. The laser is a new dynamic that really seems to have great healing powers.  It's pretty empowering to work with someone this knowledgeable and skillful, and so very passionate about utilizing cutting edge technology such as the laser treatments.

Bottom line: Dr. H is caring, committed, and very easy to chat with.  Not only that, but he spends time with you — I never feel rushed or slighted, as I have with other doctors.  I have recommended Dr. H to numerous friends and family members, and would highly recommend him to those of you reading this post. My body is healing. My surgery has been avoided. And I have a great medical resource in Dr. Harasha." - Jim D.

"Since finding Jim Sullivan in 2013, I rarely see my primary doctor or chiropractor. This is because Jim takes care of most of my health needs. His acupuncture wards off colds and flu, menopausal hot flashes and stress and anxiety. His body work stops the aches from head to toe. Oh, and his dietary and supplement suggestions to help with those hot flashes and boost immunity? All spot on. To borrow from a classic Heart song about Jim: "He's a magic man, he's got magic hands!" - Toby W.

"Anyone experiencing pain need's to explore acupuncture. I have had Jim Sullivan treat me for a degenerative disease I have in both wrists which leaves me with shooting pain. His treatment has been excellent in controlling the pain" - Tom K.
