Growing up in Louisiana, Gene Kuntz II heard stories of Cajun Healers using herbs and prayer to heal the sick. This, combined with his early love of kung fu movies, set Gene on a path to begin a practice of meditation and martial arts at the age of 13. His interest in esoteric arts and the body led him to massage therapy school in 2007. After completing massage school, Gene has placed his healing hands on over 7,000 people and performed over 10,000 massages. During this time, he furthered his education with study in both western massage techniques, such as repetitive use injury therapy and medical massage, and more esoteric techniques, such as Incan Shamanism, Reiki, and Qi gong. Interested in deepening his practice as a healer, Gene pursued his Masters in Oriental Medicine with a focus in Medical Qigong. Early in his Oriental Medicine practice Gene worked along side practitioners at Seton McCarthy’s Community Center to develop “living well with pain” and “living well with stress.” It was there that he began to see the astounding benefits that meditation practices and acupuncture can have on one’s well-being. Through group participation in qigong and NADA protocol, also known as auricular acupuncture, patients who were nearly suicidal due to pain were astonished and empowered when they found themselves pain free. Gene now uses acupuncture, herbal formulas, and experience in meditation to assist his patients in their health goals. Today, Gene works primarily with addiction and recovery centers, as well as group acupuncture and classes at corporate offices.
