Alex Tuggle, L.Ac. is a second generation acupuncturist and nutritional consultant. Having been born at home, Alex Tuggle was also raised entirely using nature-based medicine such as acupuncture and Chinese herbs since before he could even walk. Alex has gone on to finish his 4 years Master's degree in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine in 2007, and has been practicing in the Bay Area since 2008. Alex just recently relocated to Placerville, with his wife and two sons, in order to be closer to nature and provide a calmer and natural place to raise a family. Alex's main areas of expertise are nutrition, abdominal massage, healthy eating, hormonal balancing, fertility and heavy metal detoxification, using hair mineral analysis as a tool for determining your body's underlying metabolic deficiencies and nutritional needs. Alex also teaches Qigong classes every Tuesday in downtown Placerville at the Cozmic Cafe from 5:30 pm to 7 pm. Qigong helps to center the mind and strengthen the body through gentle movements and breathing techniques!
