Dave expertly conveys his ever growing passion in Auricular Medicine — as based on the work of medical doctors, Paul Nogier, Frank Bahr, Beate Strittmatter and other leading physicians and researchers in the field — through his deep knowledge of the material. He engages students with clinical examples, demonstrations and Q&A to accommodate and spark diverse interests while delivering clear objectives and learning outcomes.

Academic Director & Lead Instructor
As an international guest speaker, Dave promotes collaboration in the field. In a 2020 presentation to the International Academic Forum on Standards for Auricular Diagnosis and Treatment in Foshan, China, he addressed overarching concepts that unify differing ideas regarding ear maps and point locations.

In addition to teaching, Dave integrates cranial sacral therapy and myofascial release with auricular medicine to treat unresolved chronic pain and other issues found in therapy resistant patients (e.g. hard to treat patients who have “tried everything”). Treatment outcomes recorded at his practice suggest a success rate of over 85%. Dave credits this success to the identification and treatment of blockages to healing — a key concept of German Auricular Medicine. Additionally, Dave has developed clinical methods to identify and prioritize deep psychological blockages which maintain chronic pain, among other conditions. In a small study at his practice, he found that without treating the symptom, and only by treating the most important psychological blockage point, a patients’ chronic pain disappeared and in most cases did not return. This study supports a growing understanding of the importance of emotions on health, and of neurological insight on diagnosis and treatment priorities.

Dave is licensed under the Massage Therapists’ and Wholistic Practitioners’ Association of the Maritimes (MTWPAM) in Nova Scotia, Canada, and serves as an active board member of the Auriculotherapy Certification Institute (ACI)
