about arno

I am a healer, endurance coach and explorer of everything.

Currently finishing my Master’s in Traditional Oriental Medicine at Emperor’s College in Santa Monica, California, I treat patients every week at the school’s clinic under the supervision of very unique and talented doctors. I also complement my medical practice with Reiki and Harmonyum.

For me healing is the result of learning about myself and others in my life’s journey as an artist, a father, an endurance athlete, a buddhist and an entrepreneur. At the heart of my ventures is constant meditation and inquiry. Meditation led me to running, meditation led me to reiki, meditation led me to art, meditation led me to mountain rescue, meditation led me to traditional chinese medicine.

I’m a dedicated and passionate ultra endurance athlete (Ironman triathlons, ultramarathons, mountain running, ski mountaineering) –  I have completed and ranked well in prestigious races such as the Boston MarathonUltra Trail du Mont Blanc, Pikes Peak Marathon etc. My drive for supporting others reach their full potential in life and in sports was born at Disney when I was coaching athletes on the Disney Tri Team. We earned some medals at the Malibu Triathlon and at Escape from Alcatraz). I’m also an avid mountaineer and skier and love the Sierra Nevada and the French Alps. Follow my adventures here on my blog (you can also hire me as a coach or mentor for your adventures! ). I believe a balanced, mindful and compassionate life style is the key to good health and happiness. Something  I teach in my running and meditation workshops.

It’s this passion for supporting others being healthy and perform well that has led me to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Every patient I meet and treat has a story that is unique and my mission is to embrace and honor the profound power of his or her mind, body, community and spirit. In other words I aim to be healing helper and put into practice  a visionary model of health care providing a whole-person approach to comprehensive health,wellness and longevity
