Wes Hamner grew up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he was introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicine through his studies of Kung Fu and Tai Chi. In 2004 he moved to Houston to attend the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, where he completed his 4 year Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and clinical internship in 2009.
After receiving his license and becoming board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine that year, he entered private practice. He has experience treating a wide range of conditions such as hypertension, pain, sprains/strains, men and women’s reproductive issues, Sjogren’s Syndrome and psychological disorders such as depression and anxiety. He is constantly striving to further refine his methods and learn new techniques to best help his patients.
Concurrent with his acupuncture practice Wes has pursued additional training in physical fitness, becoming certified to teach both Parkour and MovNat (Natural Movement based fitness). In 2011 he co-founded, and now co-directs, Urban Movement, an internationally recognized organization that is dedicated to teaching both disciplines to children and adults ages 7 years old and up, and which recently began an Adaptive Movement program with the Houston Amputee Society. His experience in this field has expanded his repertoire in the treatment of sports related injuries, and, more importantly, their prevention. He is excited to be on the team with Eastern Harmony.
