MIKE'S STORY

Michael Zakko, L.Ac’s journey began with the core belief that the greatest investment one can make is in their own health. This grew into a passion for helping others that led him down a familiar road – medical school, volunteering at hospitals, shadowing doctors, observing surgeries and prestigious internships. He received his Emergency Medical Technician certification while graduating Magna Cum Laude from his undergraduate studies at the University of Connecticut. These experiences granted him a deep understanding of human anatomy and physiology, which he intended to use in pursuit of an MD until he encountered a dilemma.

As a strong proponent of an active lifestyle and an athlete, Mike found himself up against a common obstacle – injury. Chronic back pain resulting from a sports incident years ago led him to seek out a remedy for his own suffering, only to find another pervasive issue. The only available solutions seemed to involve a dependence of addictive prescription drugs, surgery or both.

This lack of options drove Mike to seek alternatives, which he found in the modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He received acupuncture treatments for his back and was astonished by the results. This was the essential alternative to addictive pharmaceuticals and surgery he had been looking for.

Mike immediately wanted to spread the word of these time-tested treatments to others who could benefit. He enrolled in the Masters of Science in Acupuncture program at the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine where he received the accolade “Clinician of the Year.” He then founded Synergy Acupuncture LLC to provide an environment for healing and education where he can equip his patients with the services and knowledge necessary to not only recover, but reach their fullest potential in their minds and bodies. His unique approach combines the best of modern medical science with holistic traditional medicine enabling his patients to take control of their own health and wellness.
