Welcome to Mortell Acupuncture
David’s passion for Chinese Medicine was born in 1981 when he was cured of a severe case of insomnia through acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Since 1989 David has maintained a thriving practice helping thousands of people recover from numerous health issues. Because of his success in treating so many patients, David has gained a reputation as one of the most experienced and sought after acupuncturists in the Pittsburgh area. His practice was recently featured in the Seen Magazine section of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette newspaper which focused on the many benefits of cosmetic acupuncture.
Throughout his time in practice, David’s passion for acupuncture and Oriental medicine has only grown, as has his ability to provide empathy, humor, and encouragement to his clients.
David has extensive training in acupuncture pain management, and Chinese pulse diagnosis. In addition to acupuncture and herbs, David also uses moxibustion, acupressure, and cupping to treat allergies, menstrual and menopausal issues, digestion, sleep problems, headaches, arthritis, pain syndromes, stress, fatigue, smoking cessation, and anxiety/depression.
David graduated with honors in 1989 from the Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, NM. He is a state registered acupuncturist and herbalist and a nationally board certified diplomate in acupuncture.
