About Daniel Wasserman
After years of being a marathoner and triathlete, Daniel Wasserman's nutritional hobby became his profession when he received his degree in Dietetics/Nutrition from Florida International University. While working as a nutritional educator for the Miami-Dade Health Department, he studied Traditional Chinese Medicine with a focus on herbology at the Community School of Traditional Chinese Healthcare in South Florida.
Immediately, upon graduating, he was asked to establish an Oriental Medical department at the largest Medicare provider group in South Florida. Beginning as an experimental pilot program at some of the Humana-affiliated clinics that serve mostly low-income elderly, the potential was soon realized when he began seeing 50 patients per day. At the same time, he joined the staff of a local birthing center. Here, he was called upon to assist at all stages of pregnancy, from conception and beyond. He began to work in the private chronic pain clinic of the University of Miami Hurricanes' chief physician, Dr. George Munoz. During this time, he continued to grow and amass priceless experience participating in an HIV clinic, as well as, at traumatology centers.
Continuing his interest in nutrition and other forms of natural healthcare, he began to integrate other forms of complementary medicine into the Chinese model of optimal health and disease prevention. Functional medicine, homeopathy, osteopathic techniques and acupoint injection therapy are some of the modalities utilized to achieve the Chinese medical concept of a balanced 'internal landscape'.
Being a fourth generation educator, teaching is literally in Daniel's blood. He has taught courses at local Chinese programs including the Chinese Medicine Institute and the Southeast Institute of Oriental Medicine. His reputation for teaching has steadily grown as manifested in numerous speaking engagements at universities including University of Miami School of Medicine, Florida International University School of Nursing and Barry University School of Podiatry.
For many years, he has provided continuing education for his profession. He is now focused on designing practical protocols for Integrative Chinese Medicine, which synergize various modalities that fall under his scope of practice. He maintains a busy private practice in Hollywood, Florida where he practices Integrative Oriental Medicine.
He is considered an expert in the treatment of Fibromyalgia. He receives referrals from psychologists, psychiatrists, orthopedists, chiropractors, rheumatologists, as well as other Oriental Medical practitioners. He has written a 250-page research manual on the evidence-based treatment of Fibromaylgia.
He has also composed a 70-page troubleshooting guide on Chinese Medical Midwifery with an accompanying DVD.
Outside of the world of Chinese Medicine, Daniel Wasserman has been a professor for an international learning program where he teaches a course on Jewish Ethics and the Rhythms of Jewish Living.
