David Magill

I spent my early childhood growing up in Durban, South Africa in the early 1960’s where my father practiced Pediatric medicine at McCord Zulu Hospital. I didn’t know it at the time but my greatest influences came from all the doctors and nurses that worked at McCord’s and continue to inspire me to be a vehicle for healing people. I came to Acupuncture by first addressing my own mental and physical health.

I was treated at the San Francisco school of TCM for what seemed like Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Within a week of receiving acupuncture and an herbal formula the symptoms were gone and I felt much better. It piqued my curiosity and I attended an open lecture on Chinese medicine to find out more about the program.

At the time I was working as a residential counselor in a Mental Health Program and studying Tibetan Buddhist practices, Thai Chi, Taoist philosophy and meditation, all of which are part of the Chinese Medical tradition. I currently study an internal energetic and spiritual practice called Sheng Zhen, the practice of nurturing Unconditional Love.

What appealed to me about the medicine is that it treats holistically. In one session the body, mind and spirit can be addressed by relaxing and calming inner tension, relieving physical pain and gently opening one to new possibilities.

I graduated from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine with a Masters of Acupuncture in 2012 and then completed the Herbal program graduating with the Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2014.

I went on to complete a 5 year internship with master practitioner Judi Terrill, L.Ac. becoming certified in Five Element Acupuncture which emphasizes that emotions are often the underlying cause of physical ailments. I also interned in Five Element Pediatric Acupuncture. I currently treat children under the umbrella of a non-profit and have my own adult practice in the same office.

Treating my patients has become a joy and a privilege to see how people grow and heal from past wounds and obstacles. Every time a patient exclaims, “my god the pain is gone!!” I dance for joy along with my patient.

My mission and passion is to promote good physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health within and around the community.
