About Doctor

Sean Leonard, MACOM is an acupuncturist in Sarasota, FL. He specializes in acupuncture, physical medicine & rehabilitation, and more.

As a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I am always looking for the root cause of any manifestation of pain or illness. 

Of course, dealing with pain and discomfort is always a primary consideration, but to achieve lasting results, I always treat the root. This is the core of holistic medicine. 

We never attempt to suppress symptoms, but rather look for the underlying cause of them, and then utilize acupuncture, herbs, lifestyle modification, and physical exercises to correct the underlying problem.

Sean Leonard graduated from Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine in 2004 with a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. With a background in Chinese Martial Arts, he was originally drawn to the physical aspects of TCM. He developed his intuitive palpation skills, and became comfortable working with the viscera, fascia, ligaments, and joints.

The next phase of his development involved the integration of Japanese Meridian-based acupuncture treatments. Respect for differentiation between root and branch, illness and symptomology, was highly stressed, and became a fundamental objective within his approach to medicine.

In order to be more skilled at treating pain, Sean then set about learning the Richard Tan Balance Method, as well as advanced applications of Tung style acupuncture theory and technique. Utilizing this highly specific system of treatment, he began to have more success with advanced internal medical issues involving the cardiovascular, hepatic, and digestive systems.

Sean couples palpatory diagnostic techniques with personal medical history, and advanced pulse diagnosis to look at the internal landscape of the body. He utilizes both Acupuncture, and Chinese Herbal Medicine, in distinct formulations, to restore balance and harmony to the body and mind.

As a Qigong practitioner, and founder of the Alchemy Qigong Style, Sean teaches his students and patients how to maintain and enhance personal wellbeing through strength, balance, centeredness, and flexibility.

Sean's number one concern is patient outcomes. He works in a methodical and precise way to get to the root issue behind each manifestation of illness, often going the extra mile, doing research and exploring alternative methods until the right diagnosis and treatment strategy are in place.
