Brent Garcia, LAc. LMT
sBrent Garcia, LAc, LMT, is an acupuncturist, massage therapist, and herbalist specializing in the treatment of pain, chronic anxiety, and mood disorders.
He graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine - Chicago (now the Pacific College of Health and Sciences) in 2012 with a massage certificate, and in 2015 with a Masters of Science of Traditional Oriental Medicine.
Brent’s journey to becoming an acupuncturist and licensed massage therapist started on the soccer pitch. Soccer was a huge part of Brent’s life. He played competitively from the age of six through his late 20s, even after having his left ACL surgically repaired during his freshman year of college.
However, starting in 1999 he began to suffer a chronic Achilles tendon problem that made running painful and left him limping for two to three days after any game or training. He consulted an orthopedic surgeon, and his recommendations didn’t help much. Brent started a search for other ways to reduce his pain, increase his range of motion, and restore the freedom to live his life.
Therapeutic massage, sports massage, and bodywork all helped him run again. He completed his first 5K race in July of 2010, a decade after playing competitive soccer, and today his body functions at a much higher level than it did even five years ago. Therapeutic massage and bodywork produced the results he was looking for.
Brent’s introduction to acupuncture came when it allowed him to quit smoking over a decade ago. He got to experience firsthand the power and potential of the medicine.
Brent chose to study and practice acupuncture, East Asian Medicine, and bodywork so others would not have to go through the pain that he had.
Brent’s mission and purpose is to help his patients live active, pain-free lives. Whether a patient’s root cause is a physical ailment or a mood issue - which are often linked - Brent focuses on producing results.
He views the body as inseparable from the whole person, and his goal is the help every single person he works with to reconnect to that innate truth, and to live their highest possible life.
Brent also teaches at the Pacific College of Health and Science (formerly PCOM) in Chicago, in both the acupuncture and massage departments. His interests included film noir, reading, and strength training.
