About David Buscher
Dr. David M. Buscher, D.Ac., Dipl.Ac., L.Ac. is a skillful, experienced healer with a multifaceted background that allows him to approach each challenge from a broad perspective. He holds degrees from the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Baltimore, Tai Sophia Institute, and the Maryland University of Integrative Health and has lived and worked in Chicago, New York City, and Baltimore. He became interested in wellness in the 1990s while employed by a publisher that specialized in health and human potential. In 1997, seeking relief from chronic pain, he began seeing an acupuncturist and in the process found that the treatment opened doors to increased immunity, a lasting sense of well being, and emotional growth that continues to this day. After the turn of the century, he owned two retail stores that focused on health and eco-friendly home products, opened (with several partners) a café that serves organic and all-natural fare, and began his acupuncture training.
Dr. Buscher is currently in private practice as a licensed acupuncturist in Baltimore, Maryland. He is also the coauthor, with his late mentor Bob Duggan, of the ebook Navigating Living.
"David has been treating me since January of this year. He is the fourth acupuncture practitioner I have had in the past 15 years, and he's one of if not the best I have ever had. Not only have I noticed a difference in me, but those around me have, as well. His bedside manner is excellent, and he seems to have a knack for getting to the root of my issues. Whether it is physical pain, stress, or the other random issues that seem small to me but turn out to be the sign of a larger issue, David always comes up with the proper treatment to get my body back on track. He has helped me to become more aware of what my body is saying to me and how to best fulfill its needs." --ED
"It's amazing what a few well-placed needles will do! The very first treatment made remarkable 'night and day' difference in the way I was thinking and feeling. My energy and mood improved dramatically, my depression lifted, and I have a renewed sense of myself. I am grateful for the skill and compassion David brings to the art of acupuncture and for the successful treatments he designed for me." --GG
"I began seeing David for several physical and emotional issues. I had been suffering from pain in my lower back (sacrum) and was being seen by a doctor and a physical therapist/chiropractor. Nothing was helping. The muscle relaxers and steroids the doctor put me on had terrible side-effects . . . David, in one session, using five special needles, fixed the issue. I have not had the need to take either of the medicines ever again and have had no issues with my sacrum . . . I was [also] dealing with mild depression, and David's sessions were really helping me cope." --SE
